Alex Zylka is a seasoned creative producer primarily working in experiential marketing activations, exhibitions, and theatrical/musical/performance art events. My passion for the nitty-gritty details, the thrill of running under pressure drives me to create meaningful and seamless activations—and evaluate the metrics to make the next time even better.
Combining a successful history in professional theater and event production with an education in both Visual Design & Human-centered Design has broadened my capabilities as not only a producer but a designer, which allows me to be the perfect liaison between creative teams and the people who make their visions come alive.
