Our Team

Darren Olarsch
President

After receiving a degree in Archeology, Darren did what every Indiana Jones wannabe did: he started an entertainment company. Thousands of events later, Darren’s passion for entertainment and eye for detail is uncanny. On his days off, he enjoys a good handyman project and a Johnny Walker Blue, just not at the same time.

Troy Curtis
Vice President

Troy has an accomplished history in the entertainment industry with over 20 years of experience in the recording studio and on stage. He knows what it takes to curate the bands and ensembles that make up the core of On The Move. As a bandleader, Troy headlines his own super-band as well as our highly touted Orchestra.

Raquel “Rocky” Giberstein
Creative Director

Rocky’s industry ‘street cred’ stems from globe-trekking as a professional dancer and managing specialty talent for cirque, nightlife, and sideshow. In 2014, her 16-year boutique sized representation of talent, Rock-L Productions, merged with On The Move, bringing visuals and spectacle to complement the extraordinary music! If you tell her about any homeless dogs, she will try and keep them.

Alexis DeAngelis
Director of Business Development

After 20 years on the food, beverage and venue side of the Events world in NYC Alexis brings her love for a great party and attention to detail to OTM. When not busy keeping her finger on the pulse in the industry, she could be found enjoying life in the burbs of Tenafly, NJ with her husband and 2 kiddos.

Scott Warfel
Producer

Scott is On The Move’s resident Brooklynite, visual artist, and drag queen enthusiast. You will often spot him bopping around our events taking pictures, managing talent, and chatting with all the planners. Scott also has a black cat, named Gregg, who Buzzfeed featured because he’s the coolest cat in New York City.

Joshua Leon
Production Coordinator & Choreographer

The “Jack-Of-All-Trades”. With his positive energy and charismatic attitude, Joshua has danced his way into the office and the hearts of our clients. As Production Coordinator and Choreographer, you will find him doing anything from shakin’ his booty on the dance floor to overseeing and coordinating a full out production.

Max Mulready
Music Director

Max is Music Director and keyboard player for The New Millennials and enjoys harnessing the band’s incredible abilities to create once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Apart from music, Max can be found listening to The Daily, reading nonfiction, biking down the Hudson, or drinking an IPA with his friends.

Gabriel Otero
Music Director

Hailing from New Mexico, Gabe’s dedication to music is showcased in his bass playing skills. He knows all about the best places to eat around the city, and will happily accompany you to go get donuts. 

Michelle Moore
Production Coordinator

Michelle is a California transplant who’s been Darren’s right hand at OTM for the past year! When she’s not zipping out contracts she can be found playing ball in Central Park and searching NYC for any country music she can find.

Sydney Hampton
Production Coordinator

Sydney’s passion for the entertainment industry began at a young age while performing in video shoots and live stage shows. Recently re-located to NYC from Nashville, Sydney brings a new enthusiasm to On The Move.

Todd Krupa
Director of Technology

Todd delights in creating solutions through technology, while supporting a lifelong passion for music.  At On The Move, Todd has grown from something of a hacker to a full stack developer (both internal and external code), while keeping the art and business of music close at hand.

Kristina Hagman
Graphic Designer

Kristina is a Brooklyn-based graphic designer and multidisciplinary artist. She loves making all the content coming out of On The Move look fabulous. In her free time, you can find her making cookies, rock climbing, and getting lost in museums.

Shannon Bailey
Director of Media

Bringing all the events to life through her cinematic video edits, Shannon has consistently raised the bar since her debut in 2017. A firm believer in K-pop and jazz squares, this theatergoer knows a thing or two about bringing the crowd to feels through her musical cuts and mean kazoo playing.
