Jordan Gurrentz has a passion for music and the entertainment industry, which began at an early age. When he was just 9, he picked up the trombone and then later taught myself bass and guitar. After playing bass in multiple bands while in high school, Jordan starting building his career by booking for and managing multiple Denver-based bands. Later on, he studied advertising at The University of Texas in Austin while continuing his work in music. Now, with just over 6 years of working in the music business, Jordan is working toward his dream job of being a buyer for a large music festival. He is especially excited to be interning with CHUN because it will teach him about what goes into planning large festivals. With the short time he has been with CHUN, he has already learned certain aspects that go into these events that he wasn’t familiar with beforehand. Jordan is excited to see what else he can learn during his time planning for the 2014 People’s Fair.
David Perkins is so pleased to be a part of this year’s Peoples Fair as an intern. He has never dreamt of being involved in a project like this before but some very fortunate doors have opened and he’s inclined to walk on through. David is originally from Colorado and has recently returned from spending several years in central Florida. David says, “It’s good to be back home. I can’t wait to get back on the golf course and gain back the yardage I lost at sea level. See you at the Fair!”
Caty Carrico is a Denver-native. She is currently a junior at the University of Denver where she is majoring in Strategic Communications and minoring in Political Science. Following her graduation Caty hope to pursue a career in Public Relations. In her spare time she enjoys volunteering for a variety of non-profit organizations and searching for the best chile rellenos in Denver. Caty is so excited to be interning for CHUN because it gives her the opportunity to go behind the scenes at one of her favorite summer traditions. “Every summer I look forward to attending the People’s Fair and chowing down on frozen cheesecake and getting henna tattoos!”
Jada Triplett is the youngest intern CHUN has ever had, she is currently a junior at the Denver School of Science and Technology in Green Valley Ranch. Jada has an older sister who is in college and a younger brother who is a middle school. Jada is very interested in sports and traveling. She plays basketball and volleyball, and went to Hawaii last year where she got the chance to play a little b-ball there.
