I am an extremely hard working professional specializing in tour management and personal security. I am also highly experienced with production management, merchandising, stage-managing, and VIP meet & greet coordination. When it comes to my work ethic, there is no “job description;” I take on multiple jobs at once, and do anything and everything necessary to accomplish the ultimate goal. I take every job very seriously, no matter the size of the tour. My goal is to leave every promoter and venue with the best possible impression of the artist. I am trustworthy, honest, incredibly organized, always accessible, possess excellent verbal and written communication skills, and perform well under extreme pressure. I have an absolutely clean record with no border issues, a valid passport, and a spotless driving record. I have an exceptional work history, with many excellent references. I have never been fired from a job. I have developed an outstanding reputation with Promoters, Venue Staff, Managers, Agents, and Media Personnel worldwide. I am constantly praised as being one of the most professional and easy to work with tour managers around.

I am proficient in in all Microsoft Office software, Keynote, Adobe Creative Suite 6 - including Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom for photography, and iMovie & Premiere Pro for video editing.

I graduated from Full Sail University in Orlando Florida as Class Valedictorian and Academic Achievement Award Winner with my Bachelors degree in Music Business in September 2012. I already hold my Associate of Arts degree, and my general high school diploma.

I am also a nationally published and very successful concert photographer. My images have appeared in such publications as OK Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, All Access Magazine, Popstar Magazine, RockWire Magazine, Full Access Magazine, and Alternative Press Magazine. I was also the official house photographer for the CFE Arena, a major market 10,000 capacity venue.
