Events and Volunteer Coordinator

Marshall is excited to bring a wealth of fundraising experience to UTOPIA Washington as the Events and Volunteer Coordinator. The 5 years of event management and working with donors and community partners has played a pivotal role in the success of numerous events. One of his most notable events was being the lead staff for the 2022 Tacoma Pride Festival and the month long celebration that ensued. His ability to seamlessly blend creativity with meticulous attention to detail has resulted in events that not only meet organizational goals but also leave a lasting impression on community. At the core of Marshall’s professional journey is a commitment to supporting the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities and small businesses that enrich any city’s footprint. When he’s not at work, Marshall enjoys spending time with family, going out with friends, any form of creativity and live music. He has an appreciation for fashion, photography and interior decorating.

Don’t wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get you’ve got to make yourself.
