I am Abraham, a freelance Producer, Director, and Performer in the SF Bay Area. I have produced hundreds of individual, private, corporate or theatrical events over the course of the last 15 years, with over 10,000 hours of experience producing and managing events of all sizes and formats. Please find below a selection of event, game, and experience work produced, directed, and occasionally performed by me.
For 11 years I produced, promoted, and booked the annual Picklewater Free Circus Festival at Union Square Park in San Francisco. It served over 20,000 visitors to the Bay Area and created hundreds of unique memories over the course of 100 plus shows. In my role I hired and booked all the acts, created the yearly calendar of performances, did all of the promotion – including creating the promotional materials – interfaced with the sound crew, MC’ed all the performances, and negotiated all of the payments for the performers.
In 2013, in collaboration with Street Factory Media, I produced a set of live pop theatrical experiences for Sony PlayStation – this involved a pop-up proscenium theatre, costumes, props, sets, and more than 25 improvisational actors. The show ran for two nights as an effort to expose potential customers to the world of the then upcoming video game “The Puppeteer.” Hundreds of guests witnessed or directly took part in the live theatrical productions. I personally auditioned and hired all of the actors, hired the crew who produced the props and sets, did all of the costuming myself, and hired the musicians and improv director for the event, as well as writing and negotiating all of the assorted contracts.
For more than three years I produced, booked, and promoted the Picklewater Clown Cabaret, a monthly circus arts cabaret at San Francisco’s Stage Werx Theatre that raised thousands of dollars to benefit various artists and arts organizations in need. I booked all performers and directors, did all of the promotions and produced all of the promotional materials, did all of the accounting, and performed on many occasions as MC or in assorted clown or circus acts.
In November of 2020 I produced my first live wedding event over Zoom and Facebook with over 200 attendees through Zoom Webinar and Facebook Live. I did all of the tech set up personally, with a multicamera Zoom stream, and numerous speakers and video guests from around the world, including Mexico, Nigeria, and numerous American states. I also created a video guest book which played before the wedding with video and text messages from dozens of individuals who could not attend the wedding in person. I have done dozens of livestreams and hundreds of zoom events in the last 5 years.
Hi. I’m Abraham. I moved to San Francisco in 2005 to pursue a love of performing and producing. I am a theatre and event producer with over 15 years of experience in the Bay Area. After graduating from the Clown Conservatory at San Francisco Circus Center, I started producing a local yearly circus festival that ran for 11 years. From that I sprang off into event production and video and podcast production.
I adore event production in all its forms and have been doing event production for most of my adult life. In one form or another. As a person with a deep love of theatre and event production, and building communities, I would be thrilled to bring my unique skill set to your team.
I offer affordable event, video, and podcast production, editing, and direction. I look forward to working with you on amazing projects!
