TL;DR, I'm an ex-touring musician who fell in love with the marketing side of the business.

After spending 5 or 6 years writing and recording music, and touring across North America, I hit a crossroads that had me second guessing a few life choices I'd made up until that point. When I realized music wasn't heading in the right direction, the most logical next step was to go back to school and complete a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing (which I did with Distinction), then dove head-first into digital marketing.

The amazing thing about touring the country was that it helped me develop a keen ability to build meaningful relationships quickly. This skill has given me the opportunity to represent my employers at events ranging from large conferences to small meetings in Israel, Spain, the United States, Germany, and the Czech Republic, where I sat down with industry leaders and discussed all facets of the marketing world through diverse cultural lenses.

Since then I've built up over 6 years of combined marketing, people management, and leadership experience, and I can't wait to learn more as I grow into this career that very happily replaced a life on the road.
