I started my career in my late teens, as an intern for Atlantic Records and college rep for WEA. As I finished my degree in Music Business at Drexel University, I helped create Mad Dragon Records with fellow classmates.
I went onto manage the national street team & mid-west retail for Astralwerks (EMI), and founded IXiiV Records, LLC (later changed to IXiiV Artist Consulting) with my college roommate. For eight years, while working as a paralegal and completing a Masters in Psychology (Queens College) I created bios, press releases, EPKs, social media plans, and filed copyright applications for artists in all genres.
Now, with The Rock/Star Advocate®, I'm able to live out my dream of helping musicians and their teams turn their passions into sustainable careers.
