Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Cristina’s passion for event management has been the driving force behind her remarkable journey. With a childhood split between her native California and her roots in Michigan, she cultivated a deep wanderlust that led her on countless worldly adventures. Eventually finding her home in Clearwater, Florida, Cristina embraced her studies at USF while simultaneously managing a bar, where she discovered her innate talent for organizing private events.
At the young age of 22, Cristina fearlessly embarked on her entrepreneurial path, launching a small business with a modest mobile bar service with just 8 staff members. As her expertise grew, so did her enterprise, rapidly blossoming into a dynamic force in the industry. In a few short years, her team expanded exponentially, boasting over 100 event staff and offering custom event rentals. By 2012, UDREAM EVENTS had evolved into a comprehensive event production company where the team continues to grow and provide unforgettable events.
Today, Cristina resides in Downtown St. Petersburg, where she finds inspiration for her work. Her love for travel remains unwavering, fueling her creativity and allowing her to bring diverse perspectives to every event she undertakes with her dedicated team.
