As CEO of Comikaze Entertainment, I launched innovative, industry-changing events and features in conjunction with leading studios and celebrities. I managed all aspects of event production and operation in coordination with city officials, sponsor partners, union decorators, talent managers, agents, vendors, and over 100 staff members. I also developed key partnerships to execute marketing and branding initiatives, sponsorships, and promotions.
Most notably, I developed and ran Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con in partnership with POW! Entertainment and Advanstar/UBM, which grew to an award-winning, top-attended convention attracting over 100K attendees (comicconla.com). I also created RuPaul’s DragCon in conjunction with RuPaul and World of Wonder (rupaulsdragcon.com).
During my tenure, we won Con of the Year twice, and earned global press coverage and positive reviews.
