Work experience

Senior Publicist/ Media Manager

Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend
January, 2009 – Present (over 9 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.
