Our Live Auction Services and Virtual Fundraising Events
Auctioneer Nelson Jay
A lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, Nelson developed a passion for consumer-engagement events as a brand-building expert for a Seattle brewing pioneer during the craft beer revolution. Gaining experience behind the scenes of event planning, as well as behind the microphone creating guest experiences, Nelson has pivoted to engaging audiences and building brand loyalty for the benefit of charities, schools and many other organizations.
Nelson is particularly drawn to the live auction portion of events, bringing a funny, energetic, and relatable persona to the stage. However, he is equally passionate in his approach to the virtual event setting, which is a growing medium for fundraising events.
