11/12 - After losing almost all of my events for the year, with others' support I  launched the #wekeeprunning project to help sustain the industry (RDs and Runners both) with information and resources during the Coronavirus outbreak.  This project went inactive for a while but is being brought back at a low level and integrated with OPE's strategy.    I am currently spending December in Texas supporting events, but am seeking longer-term partnerships in Colorado, Texas, and beyond.

What Do You Need?

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.

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".

Clients, Partners, + Friends

Supporting North Texas' Expanding 6-race series with:

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

Event Southwest

The premiere race + event production company in Texas;  I support them in ops lead and foreman roles, at the Dallas and Houston Marathons and many more to come.

#wekeeprunning

My goodwill project for the industry;  currently a repository of information on racing and running safely in the Covid area ;  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!

Supporting Colorado's HAL Sports, Dallas' No Limits, Austin's All Sports Timing, and More

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.

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

2019 was a great first year that took me to 40+ events including several of the largest in the country, and many of the largest in my focus areas of Denver and Dallas.  Click here to see 2019 events. 

Note: 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.
