With over 18 years of experience in the music industry, my expertise lies in album/single release campaigns, music video campaigns, securing sponsorships and funding, artist development, branding, distribution, tour logistics, artist management, and coaching.

I've represented over 26 artists in various genres, including Alternative, Pop Punk, Rock, Indie Folk, Singer-songwriter, Dreampop, Nerdcore/Hip-Hop, Progressive Rock, and Electronic. These artists have performed on official NAMM showcases, Summerfest, and Vans Warped Tour.

I've also established partnerships and collaborations with major industry players, such as Gibson, Liquid Death, Fender, and Warner Music.

I host the podcast Creatives Prevail, where I interview notable guests such as Aarash Darroodi (Fender), Kevin Lyman (founder of Warped Tour), Herman Li (DragonForce), Claire Thompson (Fearless Records), Stacey Bedford (Bandzoogle), Danny and Slade (Anarbor), and Emily White (#iVoted Festival).
