a short bio

Non-profits are my jam

I am the Chief Operations Officer for multiple, national LGBTQ+ non-profit organizations. In addition to leading the LOVELOUD Foundation as COO, I also co-founded Encircle, the largest LGBTQ+ Family & Youth Resource Center in Utah. I also co-founded and am a board member of Project Contrast--an LGBTQ+ story telling project that has grabbed the attention of national media outlets. I am an advocate for equality, love, and exceptional tacos.

 

Experience

Chief operations officer - Encircle

June 2016 - Present

I oversee the day-to-day administration and operation of Encircle, specifically the operational controls, administrative and reporting procedures, and people/technological systems in place to effectively grow Encircle and to ensure financial strength and operating efficiency. I’ve been with Encircle since it’s inception and help grow it to the now, multi-million dollar non-profit.

Chief operations officer - lOVELOUD

June 2017 - January 2019

I oversaw the festival from a bird’s-eye view. I made sure everybody has everything they needed, down to when the ice was being delivered, ticket sales were pumping, that brand activations were approved, artists schedules are sent, greenrooms are ready, press room is set and the police are there. I also oversaw the run of show for an in person audience of 30,000+ and online live stream audience of 6+ million. In 2018, we raised 1 million dollars for our charity partners.

CEO/Founder - Dunford Creative

January 2015 - Present

My personal non-profit, marketing, consulting group provides videos, websites, graphic design, and fundraising services for non-profits of every size. I’ve been able to work with charities like the Human Rights Campaign, Tiny Hero, Project Contrast and Tabithas Way.

Photographer

January 2012 - June 2016

At the ripe age of 18 I started my photography business. With a focus on family and wedding portraits I quickly grew my business until I dived into the non-profit world.
