We handle everything you need for a successful and memorable event.

We love events. We geek out on the details and relish the challenges. But we understand that some folks can’t be bothered. So leave it to us. You name it. We’ve dealt with it. And we promise to take care of it for you.

Think you have an event that will challenge us? Great. Bring it on. We love tackling new problems. We know that we can handle anything that comes our way. Why? Because we have a good, thoughtful and thorough planning process that works for any event. Because we believe in keeping you involved and in the loop. Because we don’t let anything slip through the cracks.

Mainly, it’s because we believe that the success of an event is not just what happens on the day of, but in the many months leading up to it.

Jason Burlingame and Margaret Crisostomo co-founded STAMP Event Management in 2006. They met when they both worked on the GLAAD Media Awards in 2000. When Margaret moved to New York a year later to join Jason as part of the in-house events team at GLAAD, they knew it was the start of something special. During their time there, they loved every minute, but knew that they wanted to branch out and see if they could make it on their own. They launched STAMP a few years later and the rest is history!


Earning a degree in Theater Production from Occidental College in Los Angeles, Jason’s expertise is in technical production and show management. He has served as producer on several live award and variety shows throughout his career.

Before co-founding STAMP, Jason was the Director of Special Events at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) for more than 10 years. During his tenure, he oversaw the development and growth of the national special events program including the corporate sponsorship program, the production of the GLAAD Media Awards and, ultimately, negotiated and Co-Executive Produced the television broadcast of the GLAAD Media Awards on LOGO.


Margaret’s event expertise is in front of house management, as well as ticketing, seating, guest management and sponsor activations. She has produced events with guest attendance ranging from 300 to 3,500 in banquet and theater style seating.

Prior to co-founding STAMP, Margaret worked at GLAAD for 5 years and oversaw the corporate fundraising program, growing the revenue for Special Events to close to half of the organization’s annual operating budget. She also worked for Levy, Pazanti & Associates, an event coordination company in LA and the Children’s Action Network, a national non-profit. She graduated from UCLA.
