What is your favorite part about working in the event wifi business?
The best thing about working in event WiFi can also be the worst thing! It’s all about making it happen, in literally a moment. In live events, the show goes on, whether it’s perfect or not, and you have to be a bit of an adrenaline junkie to deal with it. But when that moment happens, the show opens, and everything is smooth, it’s a great feeling!

My passion, since I was a child, has been animals – to where I’ve felt “called” to help them. I’ve been volunteering most of my adult life with dog and cat rescue groups, and now I’m thrilled to have a farm animal sanctuary of my own – When Pigs Fly Ranch. I have 6 pigs and 11 chickens – all of whom had nowhere to go. And the dog and cat rescue is still a thing – we have 3 dogs and 4 cats in the house! It’s amazing to interact with all these beautiful creatures. My life is richer for it. This picture is of Wesley, our 700 pound pig who thinks he’s a puppy!

How Our Brand Was Born

A lot of people ask us where the name “Brown Pelican WiFi” comes from. The photo below kind of says it all.  We had a boat in Sausalito, where we would see dozens, and sometimes hundreds of Brown Pelicans.  They are inspiring, courageous, elegant, comical and beautiful.  We felt fortunate to share space with them, and we decided on the name one morning over coffee when there were “squadrons” feeding in the bay.
