Partner/Event Planner & Production
Bravo Productions - Long Beach, CA
Serving as partner and co-founder of the award-winning Bravo Productions, I hold an impressive list of credentials and has earned a high reputation in the field of event planning and production – a career expanding more than three decades.
As partner of Bravo Productions, I'm involved in all aspects of the company’s event productions -- from designing the concept, budget planning, site selection, vendor and contract negotiations, and staging and producing the function to overseeing promotion, marketing, staffing and the administrative operation. In 1994, I was responsible for re-engineering the company whose sole mission was the design and production of Tournament of Roses Parade floats into a successful world-class event planning and production firm that specializes in staging corporate, association, government, military, non-profit and social functions nationwide.
Clients and projects have included some of the top names in corporate America -- from staging a launch of Mercedes-Benz North America Regional Facility, annual awards program for Enterprise Fleet Management to a TYR Sports Swimsuit launch, VIP Gala for Vons and grand opening events for the Aquarium of the Pacific. Projects also have included working with municipalities including the annual Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts Earth Day Event, which attracts 4,000 and previously contracted by the United States Army to stage their biennial events across the nation, which attracted nearly 1,500 attendees.
My firm and I are a four-time Gala Award nominee, and has received prestigious Gala Awards by Special Events Magazine for Best Event Produced for a Corporation - Budget $100,000 to $249,000 and Best Event Design – Budget $20,000. We also have received four Esprit Awards and several WESTIE Awards by the International Special Events Society.
