Toronto, ON, Canada
Hello! I'm Kyrsten Thornhill (pronounced Kurs-ten) and I like to help people - family, friends, colleagues, clients, teammates, students, Canadian Armed Forces, and even fellow airport goers. I get excited about leading and being part of a collaborative team that wants to be world-class at festivals and events. My process is to simultaneously assume and define project requirements and scope, utilize existing and acquire new resources, and supervise the efforts of team members while helping them grow. This achieves the efficient completion of deliverables, effective quality control, clear communication of expectations to stakeholders, and usable reporting. Outside work, I'm usually seeing live music, travelling or working out. I enjoy learning about real estate, listening to audiobooks, cooking, playing with every dog that walks by and staying connected with friends.
