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.

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.

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.

Lisa Ciampi Borrés
Director of Sales

Lisa has worked in the luxury and events industry for the past 10 years. Specializing in music and live entertainment she delicately personalizes a unique experience for every event. When not hustling and chatting it up, she meditates daily, cooks a mean sauce, and tries to keep plants alive.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

Richie Sherman
Music Director/Synergy

Richie is a seasoned open-format DJ born and raised in South Brooklyn. Currently, he leads On The Move’s DJ/Band Hybrid Synergy and brings the funk wherever he goes. In his free time he loves to work on websites and custom web applications.

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.
