DCJF would like to formally welcome its newest event management intern, Garrett Kearns, to the team! Garrett is an active multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bass, keyboard) and college student from Fairfax, Virginia. Currently pursuing a BFA in Creative Writing at George Mason University, Garrett brings extensive copywriting, editing, and proofreading skills to DCJF. Since November, Garrett has been creating scripts for our Fishman Embassy Series concerts (most recently the Embassy of Luxembourg and the Embassy of Peru), drafting social media copy for the DC JazzPrix application roll out, assisting the Development team with Year End Appeals and holiday stewardship copy, as well as revamping corporate solicitation letters. We look forward to Garrett’s continued success and development within the DC Jazz Festival family.
