I grew up in this industry working from the ground up in my father’s event production company. We produced some of the most epic automotive events of our time including the Hot Rod Power Tour, Car Craft Summer Nationals, and Off-Road Expo.
I attended my first SEMA Show when I was 18 years old and remember being awestruck by the energy of an industry fueled by innovation, networking and business partnerships. My passion for the automotive aftermarket ignited after that first SEMA Show. Today, I am a 20-year active SEMA member and co-founder of Lodestone Events, producers of world-class events including the Overland Expo series.
I am an experienced public trade show and consumer event strategist with a passion for OHV land-use advocacy, protecting our right to modify our vehicles, fostering the careers of women and youth, and the sustainability of the automotive aftermarket industry.
Over my career, I’ve produced thousands of events, reaching millions of automotive enthusiasts nationwide across racing/performance, classic car, powersports and off-road.
My event management background and experience pivoting a live-event business through the pandemic makes me uniquely qualified to guide SEMA’s development of a hybrid trade show strategy that is both live and virtual, and a 365-day content plan to engage young innovators and expand SEMA’s reach globally.
I am an industry professional that raises the bar, questions the status quo and drives change. As a SEMA Board member, I will strive to protect our right to innovate, break records, and to recreate in the automobile.
I am honored to be running for the SEMA Board of Directors and humbled to be chosen by my peers to take on this opportunity.
I am running for the SEMA Board Of Directors - Services Seat. Have questions about my platform or ideas on how we can further advance this industry together? Please, give me a shout!
