Todd Harper ’18

Todd Harper ’18 writes, “Since graduating from CalArts’s Creative Producing and Management MFA program, I have started my own wedding and event planning and production company in Minneapolis, MN. While it’s been a pretty slow first year, we’re looking ahead to a busy 2020 wedding season with a healthy dose of corporate events sprinkled in. Deeply influenced by my background in theater, our business model and planning process focuses on using storytelling to convey a message to our clients’ guests beyond just having a fun party or event. I live in Eagan, MN, with my wife Claire, our black lab Gordon, and two 5-month-old kittens, Minerva and Paulette. We play lots of escape rooms, build LEGO sets, and enjoy finding and enjoying local craft beers. Oh, I’ve also lost 65 pounds, so that’s cool.”
