When Rachel White interviewed for the Film Permit Liaison with the Office of Film + Music in 2006, she told then director James Keblas “I am kind of a big deal.”  And she was right.  This week we say goodbye to Rachel as she leaves the office and launches her photography business, Off White Photography.  In her eight years with the Office of Film + Music, Rachel did everything in the department at some point (film, music, nightlife, startup, special events, photography).  After transitioning from Film Permitting to Music, Rachel was the driver of the City of Music Initiative and the City of Music Awards (she got Quincy Jones!), which would not have happened without her.  Rachel helped create the Seattle Music Commission, which she has managed since 2010, as well as the Experience the City of Music at Sea-Tac Airport Program.  Rachel’s work over the past eight years has helped shape the music and nightlife industry as we know it today.  Fare thee well, Rachel!  We love you and will miss you.
