Cynika Drake, is based in NYC, but provides event planning/travel services all over the country. She has over 11 years of event planning and hospitality experience.
Despite graduating from Syracuse University in 2001 with a Bachelors Degree in Political Science, and briefly attending Harvard Law School, she ultimately decided becoming a lawyer was not for her. She packed her bags shortly after tragedy struck NYC, and in 2003 moved to Los Angeles. While in LA she tried her hand at acting, and also worked in sales and marketing for two four-star hotels. Over the years she was the go-to person among colleagues, family, and friends for everything from where to take clients to dinner to the newest boutique hotel to open in Capri, to tips on throwing fabulous dinner parties.
In 2007 after much positive feedback and encouragement from others she decided to turn her hobby of travel and event planning into a business. Cynika and her team have had the pleasure to provide services for: Google, Splunk, Time Warner Inc.,FreshDirect Online Grocery and Delivery, Good Day LA News Anchor Jillian Barberie, Danny Devito, Billy Bob Thornton, Actor Alimi Ballard, Victory Education Partners,The Make A Film Foundation, Dr. Clarence Coleman/Starlight Children's Foundation, The Lisa Raye Show, and many others.
In her leisure time she enjoys traveling, dining out, volunteering, Broadway shows, trying new recipes, and hosting dinner parties with friends.
