My career began in 2002 when I walked into a new station looking for an internship and ended up shopping for holiday toys with the Promotions Director. I started on the promotions street team a day later and within a year had produced my first concert, featuring four top Billboard artists. After being promoted to Promotions Coordinator Assistant, KFBF rose to number one in Market 5, beating out the longtime, heritage station for the first time since its debut.
Before completing my Bachelor’s degree, I took an additional position as Project Assistant with a marketing company. In the role, I had the opportunity to garner and organize media for basketball star Tony Parker and then girlfriend Eva Longoria during the NBA All-Star Weekend. The events were a huge success and gained traction in at least ten outlets. I also had the opportunity to develop and organize a fashion show hosted by actor Morris Chestnut (Nurse Jackie). Following graduation, my company collaborated with a production company to create Dallas’s first live television variety show, where I became Creative Director.
In 2011, I moved to New York and accepted a position with a public relations agency. I placed clients in CNET, Boston Globe, paidContent (now GigaOm), and The New York Times, among many others.
Following the closing of RLM, I leapt into the position of Development & Communications Associate at a nonprofit organization. I have since written various news posts, blogs, and provided technical support for the website. I co-produced Remember The Sun, a short documentary film, successfully co-produced a near quarter-million dollar event for The Family Center at City Winery, while also simultaneously adding art direction to my list of expertise.
Throughout the years, I have embraced challenging positions as well as advocated for vulnerable individuals, which is evident by my involvement in Musicians on Call and Neighborhood Coalition for Shelters.
