Lives In: currently Los Angeles, CA, originally from Austin, TX
About Me: I’m an event producer, destination wedding planner, author, mother, interior designer, and overall creative entrepreneur. 7 years ago, before launching my company Bash Please with Kelly Harris, I was in the Film Industry.
Hire Me For/I'm Good At: I'm the best damn event planner you can hire! Overall, our company strives to be innovative, artistic and timeless in our designs. We also keep it paramount that our logistical production is strong where no stone is left unturned. Our events strive to be oriented around feng shui, where the senses are heightened and in balance at the same time. We often repeat a motto around our studio which is, “Everything matters."
Interested In: Collaboration is always fun; and we are constantly thinking of starting new companies--we like to see how far we can take an idea. For example, we think it’s time we design a wedding line for Target or West Elm. Very excited about our collaboration with heymama producing The Great Jane Retreat.
Mama Likes: Road trips, living room dance parties, going to the theatre, hiking in Malibu, art trips to LACMA or the Hammer Museum, escaping to Ojai for the weekend, backyard BBQs, being in nature and feeling like I have some dirt on me by days end… meditation and yoga….. So hard to narrow down my hobbies and interests--I like to maximize my free time with inspiring and relaxing activities.
