Remember the show Entourage? Well, early on in life I knew I wanted to live like that — but in the music business. After accidentally recording over my own version of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” in high school I decided the talent side of things wasn’t for me, and started managing Rockie Fresh shortly there after. I began working with him to record & distribute music that eventually lead to him being discovered by Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump, and joining him on tour.
From there, Rockie went on to be discovered by Rick Ross and sign a deal with Maybach Music and Atlantic Records. For me, that meant I was able to spend my early 20's traveling across the world with Rockie while getting my education in music business by learning on the job.
From sitting in endless studio sessions, to working and meeting with label and press relations reps, to tour-managing nationwide headlining tours for Rockie; I learned just about everything there is to know about working with both artists and music industry professionals by being involved in nearly any and every situation an artist can face from the outset of their career.
