CHELSEA THOMAS

DIRECTOR OF SALES

Putting together events is what I do, it’s what I always wanted to do, and is what I like to do. Putting together events that are amazing in all ways, that’s what I love to do. I’m all about the details and I see all challenges as opportunities for greatness. My why? Because I believe that life is meant to be celebrated and celebrate well.

MICHAEL KESHISHIAN

EXECUTIVE CHEF

From inception my territory felt warm, loved ones close and cultural ties strong. Alas a yaya (grandma) who taught through actions that living is loving, and health is wealth. To which soil my flag stands today. Crops have grown, and recipes forth born – but alone they’re unknown, only with others are they shown. The gathering of kinds: it dowered upon me. Thus my obligation it is, and with pride do I so stride, to entertain the masses I must. Eat, drink, dance and be merry. I’m simply a man, roaming the earth, making discoveries along the way – with a smile on my face

HUMAN RESOURCES

When I was a general manager at a nightclub in San Diego, my favorite thing to do after a long day of work would be to sip on an old fashioned, stand next to the DJ booth, and look above the sea of people to see them dancing and having the time of their lives. I liked being the entertainer without having to be on stage. And it’s creating experiences like these but in a more intimate setting that made me want to join this team. I want to be the behind-the-scenes entertainer for every party held at Vertigo. And when people look back at their event photos 10 years from now, whether it is a wedding or another social event, our team will forever be a part of that memory. It’s like our work is being immortalized. Now, that’s an amazing feeling to have on an everyday basis!

OPERATIONS

Growing up, I knew I had a calling for design when I used to go shopping with my mom to find cool materials for dresses. She is a dress designer so I learned early on about colors and shapes and how to put things together. I vividly remember walking into the fabric stores with her and blasting B.I.G on my walkman to pump myself up to find the perfect materials for my mom. I was there for what seemed like endless hours, but once I found the materials, I felt like I accomplished something so big. Little did I know that 20 years later, I would be doing the exact same thing, just on a larger scale in the event industry. Like Notorious B.I.G said,  “It was all a dream….”

SALES

My dream is to put the Magical Mushroom on every menu we create. Why? Because it’s called the Magical Mushroom! It can make you speak in different tongues, plus it’s loaded with cheese, so why not? My life revolves around putting together celebratory moments for those who believe life is meant to be lived. I was always the planner in my family where I organized and bought concert tickets for my brother so that he could have the time of his life. And now, it’s no surprise that I’m the planner for all parties.
