Aural Pleasure Poetry Soirée

The Aural Pleasure Poetry Soirée emerged as a premier literary event in Portland, Oregon's thriving arts scene. Conceived in 2010 as an intimate gathering at the founder's residence, it quickly evolved into a captivating fusion of spoken word and live music and went from 20 to 150+ people in attendance at Revolution Hall, a state-of-the-art music venue. 


Recognizing the power of auditory accompaniment to enhance the poetic experience, top musicians were enlisted to provide improvisational backing, with a dynamic ensemble featuring stand-up bass, clarinet, drums, mandolin, and guitar – dubbed the "All Pleasure Band."

 As word spread, the event's popularity soared, necessitating a move to the world-class Revolution Hall music venue in 2019 to accommodate the burgeoning audience of "Voyuers."

Showcasing some of the Pacific Northwest's most celebrated spoken word artists, the Aural Pleasure Poetry Soirée became a staple celebration of diverse voices and artistic expression.

The Technique: 

In the year 2012, an ambitious vision struck me - to craft an award-winning short film. However, the path ahead was shrouded in uncertainty, as I possessed little knowledge of the intricate art of filmmaking. I reached out to an esteemed director and actor friend in LA.

His recommendation was to embark on the challenging yet exhilarating journey of the 48-Hour Film Festival, a task where creativity and perseverance are forged under immense time constraints. I assembled a talented ensemble of actors and a dedicated production crew to help with the project. 


This transformative experience illuminated the importance of production quality, and well-crafted scripts.  I contributed as the producer, actor, writer, and one of the editors to the award-winning mockumentary, "The Technique," a satirical exploration of an acting coach's descent into madness. We won, "Best Use of Character" a testament to our unwavering commitment and creative vision.

Burning Man:

The Event that Puts You To The Test. 

Producing a successful Burning Man camp is widely regarded as one of the most demanding and challenging endeavors for an event producer.

I am proud to say I was chosen to be a lead in producing a successful Burning Man camp for three years. IMHO it is a true test of an event producer's skills, requiring the ability to excel in areas such as project management, resource allocation, team coordination, and risk mitigation, all while fostering a sense of community, safety, and inclusivity for attendees seeking solace, nourishment, and entertainment.

Those who have achieved this remarkable feat, such as the individuals behind the legendary Monkey Puzzle camp, which I was part of, deserve recognition for their exceptional abilities and unwavering dedication to creating unforgettable experiences in one of the world's most challenging event environments.

Unlike conventional events, orchestrating an exceptional experience in the harsh and unforgiving environment of the Black Rock Desert requires an unparalleled level of expertise, resilience, and adaptability.

At Burning Man, the largest musical festival in the world, camps are entirely self-created and self-funded by volunteers. This means that event producers must not only secure funding through dedicated fundraising efforts but also meticulously plan, design, and construct their camps from the ground up, ensuring they can withstand the extreme weather conditions, including intense heat, biting cold, and powerful winds.

The level of logistical complexity involved in erecting and operating these camps is staggering. From transporting and assembling intricate structures like geodesic domes and stages to establishing essential amenities like kitchens, showers, and living spaces, every aspect demands meticulous attention to detail and a deep understanding of the unique challenges posed by the Burning Man environment.

Moreover, the event's strict "Leave No Trace" policy adds an additional layer of complexity, as producers must meticulously plan for the complete removal and disposal of every single element of their camp, with even a single feather left behind resulting in potential demotion or relocation in subsequent years.
