Tell us a bit about you and why you do what you do? Share your passions for your business, initiative, organization.
Really enjoy networking and meeting new people, I also have a very creative side; so being able to work in an industry that allows me to do both is amazing. Collaborating with local businesses and giving back to the community is a large part of why I love doing what I do. Once an event has come together, I take pleasure in seeing everyone having a good time and and enjoying themselves, if they aren’t then I don’t consider it a successful event!
What role do you think your business plays in supporting a more creative community? OR your community in general. (Bonus! Why do you think a more creative community is important?)
A more creative community is important because it helps bring people, businesses and their ideas together, which can create experiences that are meaningful and memorable. Being able to collaborate with businesses that might never think of collaborating together and then creating something unique and fun for the community is what Originally Crafted Events strives for.
