11/23 - Now booking for 2022!  This fall saw a series of RD, Asst RD / Ops director positions, as well as continued involvement in Ironmans and some of the largest marathons in the country.   Need a gap filled in your organization, a proejct manager, or a race specialist?  Let's talk!

New Ideas for Established Events

You're the director of an established but ambitious event or series, used to wearing every hat.  You've been around for a little bit, and you want a committed local operation with reliable people, each specializing in a key area.

But maybe you're not there right now - and right now you just need someone who can help you get there, picking a few of the hats you wear every day and helping you focus on how to get to where you need to be.  You may want to tie it all together more or find and try out some new ideas.  Or you may just need overflow with your own mid-term contract.

You need someone who knows a little bit about everything in the industry and can hop right in,  connect you with the best vendors (and vet the ones you have),  execute, and help you focus on to the long-term.  Let me help you get "On Path".

In 2020 I kept up my goodwill project for the industry;  a repository of information on racing and running safely in the Covid area and also my first foray into merch and fulfillment.

 

11 Creative

Prior to the outbreak, I was beginning to work on operations and planning with Denver-based festival series 11 Creative, supporting 2 food+drink-based events in Denver and Houston.  I look forward to growing with the entire series in 2021!

Partnerships w/ Several regional timing companies 

I don't time races myself, but in addition to ops I have a background in timing on hundreds of races, with all 3 major timing systems.  In the markets I often work in, I also regularly support timers there on their busy weekends.  Including especially: HAL Sports in Denver, No Limits timing in DFW, and All Sports Timing in Central Texas.

Irving Marathon Running Series

Supporting North Texas' Expanding 7-race series with:

  • Course direction and management
  • Photography / Video strategy
  • Packet Pickup help
  • General strategy and planning
Technology + Apps

My experience isn't only limited to operations.  In a previous life I did a lot of web design and coding, so I have helped scope and test software for several companies, including RaceWire + EnMotive's event platforms, the RunnerTag photo platform, Sweatworks' Photo platform, Pic2Go, and many others.


Schedule and Availability

Even if I am shown as busy that weekend, I have a great network of ops and photo contractors that may be able to support you on site, along with me remotely.  I also coordinate production and photo teams in several regions.
