I started working in events back in 2006, when Cox Events Group was mainly utilized for in-house events owned and operated by Cox Media Group and its local radio stations in Orlando. Over the last decade, we have grown externally and now produce and manage between thirty and forty events annually in the state of Florida that see an average annual attendance of around 1.8 million. Half of those we own and operate, while the other half are owned by third parties who hire us for our production services. Our production services include talent booking and management, event management services and on-site logistics, vendor relationships and negotiation, budget creation and management along with more boring event stuff. I was born and raised in Central Florida, and am an avid Miami Hurricane, Miami Dolphin, Atlanta Braves and Orlando Magic fan. Me and my wife enjoy traveling and we seriously make personal plans based off our dog's ability to get in to restaurants and stores.
