Event Design

There are so many reasons, and ways, to celebrate our personal and professional lives.  My philosophy is that each occasion deserves a unique signature that is accomplished through a multi-sensory experiential adventure.

Events are an exceptional way to establish or solidify an organization’s reputation, elevate its profile, strengthen relationships and drive business. There are a variety of event types. Whether your event is a corporate function, grand opening, fundraiser, fashion show, networking, social or pop-up; YCD is adept at creating unforgettable concepts and experiences and designing all phases of event coordination, from planning to execution.

Throughout my career, I’ve designed corporate trainings, progressive dinners down Sunset Boulevard, charity motorcycle runs, grand openings, awards programs and fashion shows. I’ve also attended spectacular events such as the American Music Awards, grand-reopening of the Beverly Hills Hotels, gatherings in VIP rooms, Mercedes Benz driving adventures and the list continues. At this point, I know a great party.

My preference is to design intimate home gatherings and celebrations, chef-attended events, multi-sensory private business or social experiences and corporate parties.

The portfolio below includes snapshots of events that I have created, hosted or worked at in some capacity.
