Easing my way back into the local events community in 2015..
RaceWire – Managing local operations and partnerships as well as supporting national research for a growing company with offices in main offices in Boston and LA. My primary role is in providing initial consultation to road races and race-related events that are in the planning phase and joining our registration/timing platform, but extends into data and trend analysis and coordination across the country. As the largest company of our kind by events in the U.S, we are transitioning from a traditional ‘local timing company’ model to offering a more hands-on, locally-based and supporting role to local companies, combined with our unique platform combining events registration, results, and photos. More to come in 2015!
On the side:
- East End Festival(s), Dates throughout summer: In my 8th year with this local street festival, I help with marketing and general production services for the day-of of these associated events.
- Rochester Celtic Festival, September 11th-12th – The long time co-producer of the East End Festival and owner of Temple Bar and Grille is reviving the Rochester Irish Festival downtown in Manhattan Square Park. After years of hearing people talk about events needing to come back to Manhattan Square, they finally are! I helped these guys with an event management platform website and general marketing, and am helping as an additional pair of hands in production support.
- Roc Transit Day, June 18th – I’ve always been a big fan of urban planning, maps, and transportation – I’m excited to be a part of an event for this local group that supports transportation initiatives downtown.
I am always on the lookout for roles that keep me involved in the local events, business, and arts community, as well as leveraging my experience in event production, permitting, logistics, web design and programming. Drop me a line if you’ve got something I can help with!
