Meet the Team
The Sen Fam.
Over the years Sen has gone through many evolutions. Starting off as Singles Events Newcastle, becoming SEN Events, we have now settled into a brick and mortar home at senOpsis.
During these iterations the Sen Family has grown and changed too. We've been so lucky to have some of the most awesome humans build Sen to what it is today and we couldn't have done it alone.
Below you'll find a little run down on the current Sen operators who you will meet when you come into the gallery, join us at an event or drop us a line.
Milly is the Sen Captain and steerer of the Sen ship. She is the head curator, artistic director, event leader and dating+social coach. Milly's focus is on building connections between people, encouraging self-expression and confidence, empathy, authenticity, integrity and fun.
Milly has been running weekly social events in Newcastle since 2015. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and English and a Bachelor in Art Theory. Milly started her career as a starry-eyed art fanatic in Sydney and was curating galleries by the time she was 19. After a hiatus from the art world, she's now embracing it again in Newcastle where art is about expression and connection not about industry.
Milly is also the lead design creative at Blue Fairy Design Solutions (our sister company) that operates out of senOpsis HQ.
Emily is our fun-loving Assistant Communications Commander and Production super-star. In other words, she ensures all of the paperwork is done, and projects are kept on track on the back-end so you can have the best Sen experience! You may also occasionally see her floating around at some of the events helping out as a Wingleader!
Emily also runs her own creative business, TouCairns Custom Designs, which specialises in handmade boutique gifts for mums and bubs.
Emily loves to relax on the beach after a hard day of typing, she loves to help others, and also loves to spend time with her family. Emily will be your main point of contact for any administration enquiries (ticket sales, questions etc.).
Kathryn really doesn't like long walks on the beach. She hates sand. But she loves helping people connect and facilitating new relationships. Kathryn comes up with awesome event ideas and hosts events making sure you're looked after and comfortable. She is s brilliant Wingleader and Event Host.
Kathryn is largely the driving force behind getting Sen back up and running since COVID - so you can thank her that the events are still happening.
She strongly believes diversity and equality are under-represented in the community in terms of what relationships look like and is motivated by her belief that everybody deserves to feel human connection. She's also an ambassador for Pink Hope. You can read her story on their site here.
Kathryn also runs her own creative business, Recon Creative Design, which specialises in baked goods (clay jewellery, and biscuits!).
Nik is a talented and charismatic Wingleader / Event Host. He helps with meal prep, event hosting and general vibe management.
He is one of Newcastle's best head chefs and has worked across many of Newcastle and Brisbane's best restaurants.
He is also probably the most charming man in Newcastle. Nik has been a Wingleader with Sen Events since 2018 and has experienced all the highs and lows of the various events we've run over the years. This combined with his experience in Security means that he keeps us safe during bigger events, and can always make people feel secure. He is an exceptional host, he's kind to everyone and one of the best mates a person could ask for.
