Short Bio: Producing can be tricky, but I LOVE the challenge of helping producers with their needs. Being a great team leader means being compassionate, open, responsive, and helpful (and sometimes just a little stern). I LOVE managing teams and building team moral. I can meet needs you may have for a field manager, coordinator, event manager, event registration. I make for a top-notch brand ambassador. I'm always thrilled to try new things and although I've never designed an experiential event, I have some education in theatrical set design. I'm looking to gain copywriting experience and you won't find a better bargain! https://www.linkedin.com/in/ellisoswalt/

Ellis is a fantastic go-to event staff member! I once asked him to help butler for my friend’s baby shower, and he also volunteered to help my husband and I at a celebrity blood drive event at Children’s Hospital. Clients LOVE his work ethic and personal attention towards helping their brand thrive, as well as his unwavering enthusiasm. In less than a year of working for us, we promoted Ellis to event captain. We eventually brought him on as a virtual new hires coordinator, and even offered him the position of full-time booker. Ellis didn’t enjoy working from home and chose to seek out more work in event planning and production, but we always have his back 100% and happy to still have him on our side as a rock solid brand ambassador!

Hello, I am Ashley Walter and I work as an Event Booker at Quench Staffing. I have worked with Ellis for a few years now and he has always been agreeable, professional, and good natured. He's always early to events and keeps clients happy. He has great communication skills and a great attitude, which is why he is always my go-to captain/manager. Any company would be lucky to have him on their team!

Ellis Volunteered for our pro-bono media service event for dancers called Pimp My Style. He was absolutely amazing: taking initiative, looking for placed where help is needed, very personably working with people. Our event was 8 hours and he didn't show even a glimpse of tiredness and maintained his work ethic. - Director of H+
