Throughout my career, with a little luck and a lot of hard work, I’ve had the fortune of gaining a deep and diversified set of business experiences in both music and live entertainment.

I am currently responsible for the discovery, development and promotion of emerging music artists.

An outside-the-box strategist when it comes to meeting individual goals, I oversee a small team of creative professionals, collectively working to guide independent artists in key areas such as branding, recording, distribution, content development and live performance.

I took my first stab at entrepreneurship in 2009, launching a boutique events agency that produced and designed upscale initiatives for top-level brands such as Ubisoft, Aldo & UGG Australia. With a growing desire to work in music, I eventually sold my shares in the company to pursue my ultimate passion.

With limited resources to start, I set out to connect with key influencers at streaming platforms, record labels, publishers, management companies and booking agencies. My unmistakable eye for talent ultimately led me to discover US breakout artist Carlie Hanson, landing me credits on her debut single ‘Only One’ - amassing over 35 million streams on Spotify less than 5 months after its initial release.

In 2012, I created a non-competitive national concert series called Talent Nation, selling out over 40 venues across the country - all while discovering, developing and showcasing Canada’s next generation of emerging superstars.
