Seeing a need for a creative voice in music business reporting, I created ampthemag.com in 2014. In less than a year we've signed on 700 of the music industry's top executives as paid members and signed a partnership with Pollstar, the world's largest concert magazine. I'm a regular guest on NPR and appear frequently in a hometown rag called the LA Times (where I worked for a few years). I do lots of public speaking — ask me to be on your podcast, not your conference panel.
