New York: How Can I Help You?

I’ve worked for Brown Paper Tickets for about 2 years now, It’s a great place to work and I’m glad to be a part of this team. We ticket so many different types of events, sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the diversity!

Personally, I’ve helped hundreds of event producers. I’ve provided producers with different perspectives on their businesses; ideas to increase their sales; or sometimes, I’ve just trained them on the tools available to them to increase their success. I’ve helped set up advanced seating options, checked IDs at doors, solved last minute issues and even donated my time to help non-profits list and promote their events. These unique experiences have provided me with a certain, uncommon, skill set which allow me to offer exclusive insights into event production. If I’m not familiar with the type of event you do, I know people who are!  I must say that my co-workers are amazing and inspire me daily with their experience and knowledge. They’re a great resource. Read the rest of this entry »

Radio/New Media Doer Sabrina: Clever Crafty Crafts I saw at Maker Faire New York

In September I had a chance to get to know people in the Maker Movement by attending Maker Faire New York. I had a blast and will be writing more about why I, as the Radio Doer went along with our Maker Doer Tamara Clammer and co-worker Kelly Allen. (hint: it has to do with building more relationships between Community Media and Makers/Hackers). I met many creative tech people and engineers – but the work of the crafters also caught my eye. I don’t knit, but I love fabric arts and independently made jewelry, so a few things caught my eye. The Brown Paper Tickets booth at was right next to a main thoroughfare – so I saw some incredible crafty crafts and wear-able art.

Some highlights:

Food Scarf!
I loved this scarf. Maybe you’ve seen art like this just hanging around people’s necks, but I haven’t. The whimsy of it just made me happy. I didn’t get her name, but she said she just graduated from school where she focused on animation. She calls her stuff Scarf It Down Knit Delicacies. Check out her Etsey Store!
