For the last six years, I've been doing Public Relations for a Music Festival, writing and editing all media materials and managing all media relations. Before that, I wrote for an art/ music/ nightlife & culture website for 12 years where I was editor of over 30 other writers from around the globe for six years.

Work experience

Senior Publicist/ Media Manager

Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend
January, 2009 – Present (about 10 years)

I write and edit all press releases, emails and marketing materials. As a result, the event has gained more media attention than it ever had before hiring me, and the event sells out every year in advance.

Columnist and Editor

CG Weekly (formerly Coolgrrrls.com), was an Internationally read website all about City Nightlife, Music, Arts & Culture from a female perspective, covering various cities all over the globe.
