Hi, I’m Louise! I am a producer and project manager based out of San Francisco, California. That means that I take content-driven projects, such as events, video and marketing content from idea to reality. I am passionate about seeing valuable content make the impact that it is meant and bringing it to the world in a seamless, organized fashion.
I can either plug into your existing team to fill in a gap on an existing project or start a project from scratch. Either way, I see myself as part of your team and that we will work together to make magic happen. If we are sending each other heart emojis at the end of the project, I will consider it a success 🙂
I have worn these various hats:
- Project Lead for a 1000+ person conference on social impact
- Speaker Manager and Stage Manager for a show with 50+ speakers about sales thought leadership
- Sponsor Manager for conference on the intersection of government and technology, responsible for $500K+ in revenue
My clients are contribute to the world in a positive way and they work in fields like education, social good, personal development, creativity and technology.
I am originally from Colorado and have lived in San Francisco for over eight years. I am obsessed with movement in all forms, from running to hip-hop dance to gymnastics to frolicking in the wild. In my free time, you can find me daydreaming about my next trip and unsuccessfully learning to play the ukulele. I love music of all sorts (currently listening to a lot of new age R&B and country), long soulful conversations, community-based gatherings, peanut butter, handstands and interesting opportunities to connect, grow and learn.
I am proud to be a company dancer for No Mirror Movement. In addition to creating experiences for my clients I enjoy putting on my own gatherings that are all about creativity and play. This one time I ate 6.5 pounds of a 7 pound breakfast burrito because my best friend challenged me to it. I have tried to be more discerning about the kind of challenges I take on ever since. I am an ENFP.
