Meet the New Beamers

Get to know our new High Beamers and what they are excited about this upcoming event season!


Meet Shane

Event Manager

Favorite Color : Orange

Zodiac Sign : Gemini

Hometown : Connecticut to NYC to Austin

Joining us from the Big Apple, we are excited Shane has made High Beam his new home. He loves the unpredictability of running the actual event and the constant evolution of thought on what to do next. Now playing at his desk: a mix of James Taylor, Dolly Parton and Jordin Sparks – the classics (ha!). Something most people don’t know about Shane is he used to be a celeb make-up artist!

Meet Sarah

Event Coordinator

Favorite Color : Oxblood

Zodiac Sign : Cancer

Hometown : Austin, TX

This girl was born in France y’all! We hope she keeps the High Beam team full of her home-baked goods – cupcakes anyone? Her favorite part of event planning is watching her crazy ideas come to life. She jams to her favorite band, Yellow Ostrich, “always!”

Meet Celeste

Event Operations Assistant

Favorite Color : Teal

Zodiac Sign : Aries

Hometown : Harlingen, TX

High Beamers love the music scene so it is only fitting Celeste grew up around music. No stranger to the stage she played her first violin gig the day she turned 12 – talk about a birthday to remember! She is inspired by the unique combination of creativity and organization, big vision and attention to tiny details it takes to produce the perfect event. Also a Native Texan; Harlingen to Dallas to Austin (Whew!) her travels could explain her band of choice, Asleep at the Wheel – She’s seen miles and miles of Texas…


Meet Ana

Event Coordinator

Favorite Color : Yellow

Zodiac Sign: Virgo

Hometown : Austin, TX

Born and raised in Austin! Ana has been “SXSWing” for a while and is excited to be on the planning side this year. Look for her working magic during a product activation and the perfect #hashtag placement. She is all Texas and loves rock ‘n roll – more specifically - Guns ‘n Roses (swoon). Don’t let the blonde hair fool you; she is a huge X-Men fan! ... it's also her birthday today!
