I manage events from intimate, high-profile events to conventions and trade shows with thousands of attendees, my attention to detail knows no limit. My experience has provided a well-rounded perspective in event management, as well as a better understanding of venue management and the client point of view. My favorite motto when it comes to events is, “Leave no stone left unturned. Then turn them all over again."

Ryan Earl

Director of Logistics

I manage the GWC warehouse, oversee our audio/video and stage scenic and always make sure all the necessary gear gets on the trucks that go out on the road. Once the trucks are loaded I then get to drive those trucks to the job location. I love seeing the country and getting in some fishing when I can.

Madison Machen

Creative Coordinator

Coordinating a group of wickedly creative artists is not for the faint of heart. It is my job to add a bit of order to the creative process, keeping the team on schedule and budget. I'm passionate about finding innovative solutions to everyday problems – because of this, no two days are the same. When I’m not working, you’ll likely find me spending time with my dogs or exploring Nashville’s food scene.
