One of my first large-scale events to take charge of with the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, the Downtown Rooftop Shindigs partnered with Pittsburgh Filmmakers and the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust to showcase a free classic movie on the roof of a parking garage in Downtown Pittsburgh. Complete with food and drink vendors, live entertainment, and life-sized games, the Rooftop Shindigs proved to be one of the most popular Downtown events.

Responsibilities included: day-of management of staff and vendor relations, coordinating set-up and tear-down, music curation, and social media posting
