What brought you to JRA: It all started in 1997 when I booked my first artist as a promoter and started a festival. After many concerts and tour dates over a 10-year period, I joined JRA as an agent and moved from one side of the desk to the other.

Something about you that would surprise people: I have a Masters of Religion from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, MA and a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Wingate University in Wingate, NC.
