Kingsbury Hall is the performing arts center on the University of Utah campus. Since the venue opened its doors in 1932, many of the world’s most well-known and well-respected artists, performing groups, politicians and world leaders have graced its stage.
As the Event manager for Kingsbury Hall, I was in charge of managing an annual nationally renowned event put on by Odyssey Dance Company called Thriller, through the entire month of October, with over 1,000 attendees per night. I assisted in the logistics of numerous events and conferences, including TEDx. I also supervised front of house operations, managing up to 12 ushers a show, while communicating with producers and stage managers to ensure everything ran smoothly.

Event Coordinator & Host
Back in 2014, I was in Business Leadership Program at the Canyons Technical Education Center. In this program, we learned the ins and outs of business leadership, as well as how to work with other businesses.
As one of our projects, we had to volunteer for a organization we admired. I chose Mentors International - a non-profit organization that provides micro-loans to low income entrepreneurs in third world countries. Instead of doing a day of volunteering however, I chose to organize and manage a fundraiser for the organization, in which I raised over $500. Though seemingly small, $500 provided over four entrepreneurs in different countries the money to begin their businesses.
