Crystal Place has the “Wow” qualities that stand out – the “POP” that employers in the creative markets are looking for.

Crystal gets my highest recommendations.” –Jim Phillips, Co-Director at Steampunk & Makers Fair
“Crystal Place embodies a unique balance of creativity, productivity, organizational ability and charm. As a producer she is as professional and efficient as I have ever worked with. As a director she is as imaginative and in-command as needed, to transform a complex story into a working and elegant finished piece. She is totally reliable, and as such, we have placed some of our most important clients in her hands. She has delighted those clients with the work she’s done for them, and as a result, we have built those working relationships into additional business.
Crystal is also fun to have around. She’s smart, aware of the world around her, involved in interesting activities outside of her work, and she’s able to engage anyone on nearly any topic. She also understands all the elements of contemporary production, from the technical to the aesthetic. I have found Crystal to be a pleasure to work with.” -Ed McKeon, Motion Inc. Company Owner, Producer, Writer
