Tracy has over a dozen years of experience producing events for the non-profit, film, fashion, sports and corporate sectors. After spending four years managing high-profile events for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund in NYC, her ever-present need for adventure and travel prompted a dramatic life-change and move to Sydney, Australia. It was in Sydney that Tracy established her roots as a freelance event planner, working on an array of projects from runway shows with Miranda Kerr to halftime entertainment productions for The National Rugby League.
After returning to NYC in 2010, Tracy continued to grow her client list and in 2013, starting her own company seemed the next natural step and Little Bird Events Co was born. Working with clients including Accenture, Future Workplace, iGlobal Forum, A Child Grows and Tribeca Film Festival, the firm produced 31 events in its first season. In 2014, Little Bird headquarters were moved to the Bay Area where it continues to grow a strong bi-coastal presence producing regular events in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. When she’s not busy producing memorable events for her clients, Tracy can be found chasing her two rambunctious young boys while devising the next great renovation project for her home.

Megan Kuhlenschmidt is a New York City-based event producer. After graduating from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and spending a year on a bus tour managing a country band, she moved to Nashville and spent four years working as the artist relations/live events manager at Yamaha Entertainment Group. While at Yamaha, she got to dig into large scale productions and manage artist relations on concerts featuring performers like Elton John, Ben Folds, and Josh Groban, as well as plan and manage showcases, film screenings, product launches and press events.
Ready for a change of pace and to fully focus on event production, Megan moved to NYC in March 2016. Since then, she has worked on a variety of events ranging from music festivals to art shows and has joined the management team for sell out events like Pinknic Music & Wine Festival and the Great Gatsby Party. We’re thrilled to welcome Megan to Little Bird’s ever-growing team of talented event producers.
