A typical day in my life includes… I wake up, feed my dogs, and work with my team to coordinate messaging around our events, including paid ads, social media, graphic design, and more. I also spend a lot of time on emails and in Adobe Creative Suite. I spend a ton of time discussing billing on flyers, creating fun activations to engage artists, and working with other creatives to make Relentless Beats look as excellent as possible!
I was born… In Kansas City, Missouri!
My favorite thing about Arizona… I love the winters because they are not too cold where it’s miserable, but just cold enough to wear a sweater.
I’m listening to… Progressive House mostly… but I’ve also been dabbling with some country. Really, I’m listening to whoever we have booked at Relentless Beats to ensure I’m staying on top of our talking points.
My family… and I are very close! They live right down the street from me, and I hang out with them every chance I get. They come to our shows too!
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… I would love to pick the brain of Quentin Tarantino. I love storytelling, and he’s one of the best at it!
One thing I cannot live without… Movies. They make life so much more colorful and rich.
When I was younger, I wanted to be… A film director.
I’m inspired by… Those around me. Working with highly motivated individuals is how you keep the machine going and where you find inspiration to continue to do better.
The person/people who motivate(s) me is/are… Same answer as above
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… I would make it so that everyone could see eye to eye and understand that everyone has a unique perspective that makes them who they are.
The perfect day would be… Spent with friends and family, celebrating something.
My first job was… Working at AMC Theatres doing concessions and cleaning theater
My favorite escape… A beautiful vacation where I can explore places I’ve only ever read about or seen on the big screen.
My life… is better when I’m able to contribute to making others happy.
I’m currently working on… Concepts for our roster of 2024 events.
Always… Find a solution
Never… Doubt yourself
Favorite Quote… “Hard work may not always result in success, but it will never result in regret” – Michael Lewis, Moneyball
Biggest Dream… To win an Academy Award or to be recognized by my peers for my body of work
My Pet Peeve(s)… When people cancel plans last minute
