Your Start in Music

Besides playing in indie bands (georgia foreman and Swimmer’s Lungs), I worked for a regional booking agency that taught me I love working with data and not people. It also made me realize I have a knack for keeping data organized and managing it.

Coolest Part of Your Job

Biggest Challenge Facing the Industry

For the general music industry, the ability for indie and start-up musicians/artists to earn a livable income from their art. For the production industry specifically, I am more excited to see the application of blockchain technologies to royalty collection and the challenges that arise from that.
