Full Name
Weston Gonzalez
Job Title
Owner + Creative Director

Weston Gonzalez is a Latinx and LGBTQ+ business owner who conquered the world of corporate events and seamlessly transitioned into high-end event production, where he continues to push the envelope on creativity and shake up the status quo of how to approach entertainment industry events. 

He is an ambitious event producer who spent over a decade working in-house at studios, networks and streamers, rising to event executive positions at Sony Pictures Television, Starz and Apple TV+ all before the age of 30. At 30, he left the corporate side of entertainment events and launched his event production company, westhaus, in January 2020. Launching westhaus with a pandemic looming was no easy feat, but Weston navigated the complexities of owning and operating a new event production company through lockdown, and found creative ways to help his clients eventize content. Impressively, Weston and his team produced the first post-lockdown, in-person, non-drive-in television premiere in Los Angeles creating a COVID-safe environment that soon began to be mimicked by other production agencies. 

Since launching westhaus in 2020, Weston has grown his staff to a team of twelve with headquarters in Los Angeles and teams based in London, Austin and New York. Together, they’ve produced hundreds of events since launch, including some high-profile premieres like the Gaslit World Premiere in April 2022 at The Met in New York, the Dangerous Liaisons World Premiere in October 2022 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York and the Party Down World Premiere in February 2023 at The Bruin + Palazzo di Amore in Los Angeles. 

Recently, Weston seamlessly navigated the historic WGA and SAG strikes and worked with clients to curate events that respected the striking artists while still supporting the hard working teams behind the content. Weston and his team were immediately thrown a curveball when SAG officially went on strike, as they had the season two premiere of Starz’s Minx fully produced and ready to execute. Knowing that a strike was on the horizon, they preemptively worked on a backup plan with Starz to turn the premiere into a below-the-line focused event for different guilds and voting groups. Weston and his team also worked closely with their clients to find clever ways to garner press and awareness for upcoming films and series, without disrupting the strikes. Some of those included producing fan events in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 and working with Netflix to strategize the launch of Rustin by producing a preview screening event in partnership with GLAAD's first ever Black Queer Creative Summit and the film's showcase at NewFest in New York. Since the strikes ended, Weston has been busy producing events for an array of clients. Most recently he produced the highly anticipated US premiere of Mary & George.

Weston is extremely proud to hold two minority business certifications including the Minority Business Enterprise certified by the NMSDC and LGBT Business Enterprise certified by the NGLCC, and prides himself in hiring minority vendors whenever possible.
