Here are some highlights of things I organized and/or produced as staff, particularly in 2015:
Fundraising and Project Management, Colibrí Mural in Phoenix, Arizona, 2015 -This project was really heartwarming and centered the important work of the Colibrí Center for Human Rights does at the U.S. Mexico border to name those who lost their lives crossing the Sonoran Desert and return them home.
10 BEST NEW PHOENIX MURALS OF 2015, Phoenix New Times

Immigration Mural Finds Home and Grand Avenue in Phoenix, Phoenix New Times
Project Management, Immortal Technique Concert feat. Constant Flow (CF), Poison Pen, and DJ Static, The Monarch Theater, 700-ish people, July 2015 - As part of the Netroots Music Project, I coordinated a lot of things, this being one of the most challenging but also most rewarding. There's just that moment when everything is pulling off the way you want it to that makes all of the planning worth it. That moment was definitely when all four of these performers were on stage at once.
Project Development and Management, The Netroots Music Project and it's 10 panel speaker series focused on arts and activism that featured musicians like The Downtown Boys, Immortal Technique, The Chapin Sisters, Irene Diaz, and Jasiri X alongside activists and artists alike.:
