I am a displaced Indiana Hoosier who spent my early years riding in vans with bands while I did marketing and PR for the best indie record labels in Chicago (at that time): Wax Trax and Touch & Go. I’ve been a New Yorker (twice), a Londoner (briefly), a desert dweller and an Angeleno (three times now). I’ve run marketing departments for major record labels. I worked for Damien Hirst for a short time. I had the distinct honor of working on the premier season of GLEE and I traveled the rails and worked on the Station to Station tour with uber-artist Doug Aitken.
At Warner Music, I have the had the honor of running global marketing campaigns for the legends that are Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris; and the genius that is David Lynch and the Twin Peaks team.
I worked on the Los Angeles area debut of Shaun White's Air + Style. I write about cool art happenings for Art Nerd; I was part of the marketing team for BottleRock Napa Valley 2014; and I run started an arts non-profit, ART from the ashes, with a very dear friend. It is the most beautiful and rewarding work I’ve ever done.
In my spare time I do this: Cookie Route and this: Los Angeles Makers. I spin records on my monthly radio show at KCHUNG Radio and once, in 2006, I got to cast zombies for the Gorillaz and Madonna performance at the Grammys:
