I specialize in supporting M&E and marketing teams with corporate event technology concepts and designs.
I began my career in Chicago as a freelance AV technician for Sound & StageCraft and and assistant ad agency producer for Bayer Bess Vanderwarker. My first significant negotiation was to secure a preferred vendor contract with the City of Rosemont for Progressive Audio Visual Productions. As General Manager, we produced event technology for clients such as McDonalds, Lucent Technologies, Helene Curtis, and Microsoft at the Donald E. Stephens Rosemont Convention Center. In 2003 I relocated to Phoenix and formed JStryker, Inc., an event technology company offering set designs, technical directing, AV equipment rental, stage directing, and producing visual content.
I'm passionate about integrating client brands within the overall look of technology, and dedicated to supporting my clients needs while bringing a sense of calm and fun to every event I manage. I really love what I do!
