Meet the Team

Kerrell Dunsmore

Kerrell Tarantula PicKerrell is a Founding Board Member of ILEA AZ (International Live Events Association, Arizona Chapter), a current Board Member of HSMAI AZ (Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association, Arizona Chapter) and a member of the Event Safety Alliance. She has lived most of her life in either California or Arizona, so it’s no coincidence that she is a bona fide sun worshipper! Her first foray into the world of events came in the form of working live remotes for radio stations back in the late 90’s.  From there, she has held many posts, including the fields of audio-visual production, trade shows, and a heavy emphasis on conference management. Her personal motto, borrowed from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, is “This Life Is More Than Just a Readthrough”. Kerrell is also a certified yoga instructor, and volunteer mentor for Mountain Pointe High School’s FIRST Robotics team.

Throughout the years, Jen has worked in the hospitality industry at the Hampton Inn in Peoria, AZ, she was a stay at home mother, worked in the merchandising management field, and was extremely excited to join the next great event team in August of 2019.

Greg Sharpe was born in Glendale, AZ  and raised in Surprise, AZ where he lives with his awesome parents and two younger brothers.  He has one older brother & sister-in-law in the Army in Texas.  Greg enjoys fun family activities, such as spending time at the lake, camping, and going on vacations.  While in 7th grade, Greg found his passion for broadcasting and being behind the camera.  He began his YouTube Vlog, A Life On Camera Vlogs, and it’s been going strong since then—he barely skips a day of vlogging.  During that time, he found his love for magic—card tricks, and has tried out for America’s Got Talent twice.

Throughout Greg’s high school years, he has worked at Barro’s Pizza.  In his spare time, Greg loves to volunteer at Feed My Starving Children in Mesa, AZ.  He recently graduated high school in June of 2020.  Greg plans to attend Scottsdale Community College, where he will study TV/Film Broadcasting and Production.
