About Darci Kendall:

OVERVIEW

I'm an extremely driven self-starter with 15+ years of experience creating unforgettable events and activations for tech, sports, music, entertainment, retail and lifestyle brands. I work well within a team, or leading it, and am able to make tough calls independently.

I'm a meticulous project manager, balancing multiple deadlines while maintaining an organized yet creative approach. I have a talent for hiring, training and mentoring highly engaged team members. And, most importantly, I'm flexible and versatile - able to stay poised and professional, and maintain a sense of humor under pressure.
