Event Architect & Social Media Mayor
in Bangor, Maine
From the moment I was introduced to PechaKucha, I became obsessed with it and am proud to help organize PKN in Bangor, Maine where there is a wealth of creativity and talent just waiting to be shared. My work background is in retail management and marketing and I'm currently the marketing manager and event coordinator at The Briar Patch children’s book and toy store in Downtown Bangor. Since 2008, my BangPop! events company has produced many annual events in the Bangor area, including the BangPop! Comic Con, SnowCon Gaming Convention, and Kid Central Festival. I have a passion for the arts, volunteering, and developing programs to help the community come together. I also serves as a member of the steering committee for FUSION:Bangor and sits on several planning boards and non-profit organizations including the Downtown Bangor Partnership, River City Cinema, Hacktivate! and the Bangor Book Festival. In November of 2013, I was elected to a three-year term on the Bangor City Council.
