    Bari Baumgardner

    Executive Producer

    Bari’s passion behind the power of a live event was the dramatic impetus for the founding of SAGE. In a world that is increasingly online, she believes in the power of offline connectivity as a way of truly connecting with people. She believes in the ripple effect of a live event: live events change the world one attendee at a time.

    Blue Melnick

    Creative Producer

    Blue leads with the “How”. His love of all things technological has led him to create some of SAGE’s proprietary systems that power better (and more affordable) production quality and  the fastest turnaround times in the industry. His behind the scenes systems empower the SAGE team to work smarter, not harder.

    Courtney Rouse

    Associate Producer

    Courtney has been a full time member of team SAGE since 2006.  Her institutional knowledge makes her an asset to any event, and an ideal team leader and team trainer, in addition to an phenomenally successful Associate Producer. Courtney is hard worker, who leads with harmony.  If you’re lucky, you’ll also get to know her great kids!!

  • Kiki Stevenson

    Production Assistant

    Kiki is a get-it-done kind of gal. A sweet-talking, fast-moving whiz behind the registration table, Kiki charms everyone she meets while speeding them through the process, so they can get on to more important things. These same skills translate to magic making at the sales table. Kiki’s background in performing arts and production perfectly aligns with SAGE’s bigger vision to treat each live event as an independent production.

  • Ryan Niemuth

    Video Production Manager

    A high school trip to Los Angeles and experiencing a live taping of Saturday Night Live cemented Ryan’s desire to switch his career focus from culinary arts to the front lines of video production. Needless to say, SAGE recruited Ryan for his Film and Video Production background. The SAGE team loves Ryan’s keen attention to detail. Not only is he a brilliant editor, production op and photographer, but he always has “eyes” on the room, making sure the big picture stays in focus.

  • Lindsey Lee

    Production Assistant

    Lindsey Lee is a sweet southern bell with service on her mind.  She is an ace at finding any branded product you need, and her southern charm has vendors melting in her hands. With an educational background in event management, Lindsey enjoys all aspects of an event, and is always willing to deliver the SAGE motto of  ”expectations plus”.  Having Lindsey at your event is such a treat because she always has a smile on her face, and snacks on hand!
