Hi there. I’m an entertainment industry and marketing professional in lovely Nashville, Tennessee. I started my career working in television and film, and had the pleasure of working with great shows like The Daily Show, Oprah, 60 Minutes when I lived in New York. Granted I spent most of my time in the production office, but let’s give props to the people who do the scheduling and hire the crews, shall we?
I calculated it all up and I have (gulp) fifteen years of experience working in the entertainment industry, with almost ten years of non-traditional marketing experience and five years experience in strategic social media planning and implementation and digital marketing to promote brands, ideas and events. That makes me ancient in the world of “new media.” Goodness… Anyway, I’m passionate about the ever-changing landscape of music, art, and technology which you will note if you happen to follow me on Twitter, subscribe to my updates on Facebook, follow my boards on Pinterest, or put me in a fancy circle on Google + and never hear from me again.
Currently, I am the VP of Marketing at Made In Network, a video-first marketing company specializing in YouTube. Previously, I headed up marketing efforts at Thirty Tigers, a very cool music marketing, management and distribution company in Nashville. I work on marketing campaigns for talented folks including Patty Griffin, Trampled by Turtles, Jason Isbell, St. Paul and The Broken Bones, Low and Lucinda Williams. Here is a sampling of past projects and clients:
I’ve volunteered for several years as a community organizer in the film, music, technology sectors, as well as with underserved populations and those in poverty. I helped start a quarterly program for filmmakers to screen their completed or close to completed works called Ocularis in Brooklyn, NY, and was a founder of Digital Nashville and served as the volunteer Executive Director in its inaugural year. I founded and served on the Martha O’Bryan Center‘s Young Professionals Committee for over two years, which supports the Center’s mission to empower youth, children and adults in poverty through community advocacy, fundraising and volunteerism.
