What experience did you have before taking on your current position?

What do you enjoy most about our customers? After 24 Years I have some great relationships with my clients. The thing that impresses me the most is how they are constantly reinventing experiential events and allowing us to help to execute their vision.
Do you have a favorite project of all time?
That’s a tough one but I would have to say that working with Lisa Bennett and Tracey Cornish (Now with Entertainment 3Sixty) on the George Strait Country Music Festival back in 1998. It was my first big project and seeing the end result in person, an 18 Stadium Date tour with a lineup of talent that what would now be considered Country Music Royalty (George Strait, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, The Dixie Chicks and the list goes on) was really exciting and laid the ground work for many of the relationships that keeps Omni in the forefront of the industry to this day.
