Experience

Carnival Cruise Line, Miami FL, Entertainment Technician, 2013 2018

Carnival Cruise Line is one of ten cruise line brands owned by the world's largest cruise ship operator the American-British Carnival Corporation + plc. I was brought on board as an Entertainment Technician for consecutive six-month contracts where I was the first point of contact for guests who were on a cruise ship vacation.

Every week we rotated in and out ~4,000-5,000 new guests. I built excellent experiences for their vacations such as fun backstage tours and activities like bingo, trivias and other game shows for guests in a fast-paced and flexible environment at sea.

During my first six months with Carnival Cruise Line, I designed and spearheaded a fleetwide sonic branding initiative for the George Lopez Comedy Club that improved guest experience of the show and is still integral to the daily operations of 26 ships--4 years later. In 2018, I left the strange and exciting ship life behind and moved to New York with my fiance for a welcoming return to land.
