What is your favourite part about your job?

The music!

What is the biggest challenge you face in your job?

Navigating the multitude of personalities (LOL!) in the music industry and figuring out the best way to approach each one of them so that I can get my artists what they need to grow and prosper.

What was your first job in the music industry?

My friends & I ran a DIY space in Columbia, MO and I handled all of the booking that took place. I was in my late teens and had absolutely no idea what I was doing, but I loved music and figured it out as I went! Through that I was able to start booking tours for friends with contacts I made through the touring bands I was booking in our space.

Favourite non-music-related pastime?

I follow politics closely and studied Journalism in college. I'm a total news junkie.

Go-to Karaoke song?

Kiss Me Deadly by Lita Ford

What is one thing you always pack when you go to a music festival?

A toothbrush. It's rude to have bad breath.
