Our Team

Who exactly are these magical problem solvers, who can bring all of our professionalism to bear in a crisis situation one moment, and have you cracking up hilariously the next? We can clean up nice and shake hands with your big donors, then turn around and get sweaty straightening signage or moving porta-potties.

We’re proud of our ability to sort 100 items into neatly categorized bins in a ropak, excited by the creative use of a zip-tie to secure vinyl, enamored by the patterns of a well-marked route, awed by the creative use of space in staging a ceremony in the round, moved to tears by the photos of loved ones lost that our participants clutch while on the event.

You’ll want us in your corner.
