TEVINPhifer Resume

COVERLETTER

Hello!

 

My name is Tevin Phifer. I am a husband for almost ten years to my greatest friend and wife, and a father for my amazing five year old son, four year old and two year old daughters. I am currently searching for new opportunities within my industry to expand my network, diversify my skill sets, and provide for my family in an ever changing industry due to COVID.

Over the last 15 years, I’ve spent my time diversifying my skills through various avenues of production, including presidential events, galas and fundraisers, corporate conferences, church productions and services, and most recently, wading into the entrepreneurial front with TTJ Productions.

I have been honored to lead an organization like TTJ Productions, especially during the toughest part of the global pandemic. I have learned so much. When the doors opened for TTJ in April of 2020, we hoped to at least break even or at least not lose everything. In fact, we were able to post nearly half a million dollars in revenue. I don't take sole credit for this, as my business partners and the few employees have been dedicated to the mission and vision of the organization.

 

So, I hope you would consider my resume and imagine that I could be an excellent asset to your team. As a small business owner and operator, there are several business skills that I could bring to the table, in addition to the technical and creative skills I have developed. Such as: business accounting, HR management, conflict resolution, budget creation and tracking, team building and development, executive leadership, corporate transportation logistics and coordination.

 

I appreciate you taking the time to review my resume and look forward to hearing from you regarding this posted position.

Sincerely,

Tevin Phifer

WHAT MY CLIENTS HAVE
SAID ABOUT WORKING WITH ME!

Imagine the impossible, do the Incredible!

PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY SCHOOLS

I had produced a live, in-house event in the same space for several years. This venue space has horrible acoustics. Picture glass walls, steel beams, and tile floors. Never the less, the event kept reoccurring and every time we were disappointed in some way, and so was the client that chose the space. We tried every approach we could muster but never had much success. With several crew members out of the office and unavailable, for the next reoccurring event, I found myself without enough bodies to even produce this event. Someone said, "We should call Tevin". He was a young man from our past that had formed his own company and I'd heard he was having success. Long story short, for the first time ever, everyone was happy. The client, the attendees and myself. He had done it using a proven audio design and by using real-time EQ and level adjustment. Best ever!

LAZARUS the MUSICAL

Bread for the World gave me the opportunity to fulfill a dream I had to produce an updated version of a musical entitled, LAZARUS: The Musical. Tevin Phifer became a member of the production team. His expertise was invaluable in seeing this project come to life on the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C.. Not only did Tevin's professionalism shine throughout the process, he became a friend.
