EVENTS:

 

Event Coordinator, Production Manager

Arusha has an extensive background in event production. As an event coordinator at Taste Catering and Event Planning, she managed and organized a high volume of events on a regular basis, averaging about 25 events per month.  As each event varied in scale, budget, client, and occasion, part of Arusha’s skill set is the ability to anticipate changes, multi-task with ease, and to plan ahead accordingly.  Knowing that the best production team can roll with the punches, Arusha strives to keep her crew happy and motivated to adapt to last minute changes, additions, and requests by the client.  Whether the event is a small house party, wedding, corporate event, or film fundraising event, Arusha knows this is her clients’ special day, and wants to make it remarkable and unforgettable.  Arusha currently Freelances with several event companies in San Francisco, most notably Winslow and Associates.
