Founder and CEO
Matthew Gray is a Carson, California native and a graduate of the University of Southern California, where he fostered a passion for communication, events and education. He spends his days educating youth across Southern California and utilizes his time outside of work to chase his entrepreneurial goals. He has over 5 years of events experience, ranging from pageants, barbecues, parties, networking brunches, panel discussions, and social justice events. The Gray Area is the culmination of this experience and a platform for both entertaining and socially significant events.
We define The Gray Area as a place where options are limitless, and so The Gray Area strives to produce and promote a broad spectrum of events as well as planning services. We provide a holistic approach - from staffing, to venue acquisition, to marketing. Each event is a quality event with the overarching goal of connecting you to your audience and the world at large. Our motto is simple: Follow your Passion, Fulfill your Purpose. This is the guiding principle which pushes us to demand the best from ourselves and our clients.
