My initial introduction to the major music industry began in 2006, spanning three-years as an on-air music host at WEMU 89.1 (a National Public Radio/NPR-affiliate station). Since then, by accumulating seven years of experience beyond radio, I’ve been fortunate enough to build a professional career around my passion for music entertainment, communication, content development and partnerships. While executing initiatives between record labels, artists, corporate clients and events, I’ve grown as both an active figure and publisher of online editorial content and digital media. After working with several teams in fast paced environments (including international work with groups in New Zealand and the UK) and directly contributing to the success of several web-based music companies, I’m eager to join an established company that would benefit from my varied professional background, specialties and skills.
