PHX Vegan Food Festival
Director of Vendor Operations
Janine is a freelancer specializing in live events and wears many hats throughout the year. She is the Director of Vendor Operations for Davisson Entertainment, who is the producer of the PHX Vegan Food Festival in Phoenix, AZ. Davisson Entertainment's mission for The PHX Vegan Food Festival is to provide opportunities for local artisans and creatives to promote vegan awareness, build community in Arizona, and create a platform for showcasing local businesses and organizations. She is responsible for recruiting, and coordinating the logistics of over 100 vendors, as well as building relationships with national vendors to obtain donations for the festival's VIP swag bags. She has been a part of the festival since its inception in 2015 and has seen it grow from a small festival with 45 vendors and 2,000 attendees to an upcoming two day festival with over 100 vendors per day and an estimated 7,000 people in attendance. The PHX Vegan Food Festival was recently voted #4 in LiveKindly.com's "13 Not-To-Miss Vegan Festivals Around The World" online article.

Janine also works part-time as a house manager at the Phoenix Theatre in Downtown Phoenix as well travels all over the country as a production assistant/runner, driver in the artist transportation department, and VIP/Platinum host at many large music festivals, including Bonnaroo Arts and Music Festival, Lollapalooza, KAABOO Del Mar, and Boston Calling, to name a few.

Janine is originally from Middletown, NJ where she comes from a music-loving family and grew up attending rock concerts with her father and watching him play drums and sing in rock n' roll bands. She is also a vocalist, having performed in community theatre and college musical productions in Red Bank, NJ and as a karaoke hostess in Phoenix, AZ. Janine is extremely grateful to be able to turn her knowledge and passion for both music and food into a career in live event coordination and production.
