At the age of 14 I opened my own basement venue in Northern Wisconsin. Since then I have gained over 15 years of experience in the music industry ranging from touring, talent buyer, band management, and promotion. I have strong roots in the music scene all around the country and have a good repertoire with venues and artist. I created and ran a riot grrrl festival in Madison, WI for 5 years and made it an annual staple of the community.
