41 Peabody Street, Nashville, TN 37210
I am a serial entrepreneur with over 12 years of professional experience in the field of Music/Entertainment. Beginning in 2010, I launched two music competitions that changed the face of Nashville’s music scene and expanded into several countries around the world. I was later nominated in Billboard’s 30 under 30 publication and also won Nashville’s 40 under 40 award in 2014. My events sparked a new start-up idea and I have now transitioned into the tech industry with my mobile app startup called MILK.
Developing and owning my own entertainment district is a long term goal of mine. That is why I enrolled into Real Estate Development School in 2013 to create an “Eat, Drink & Play” concept called “nashUP”. I was later given an Award of Distinction for this project and still plan to make it a reality in the near future
Right now my focus is scaling my mobile app startup while helping others through consulting, coaching and public speaking services.
I have an online event planning school for entertainment entrepreneurs who are looking to take their events to the next level. I can teach you how to sell more tickets, get sponsors, crush your competition and scale your events worldwide.
Diversity and Inclusion, Mobile Marketing, Music, Entertainment and Entrepreneurship are just a few of the topics that I can speak on for your next event. I love to inspire and make others aware of the endless amount of opportunities in their organizations.
Although I'm not accepting any new clients at this time, developing talent and creating opportunities for musicians is my specialty. Artists are in need of guidance from professionals who know all sides of the music business: from placements to signing deals...I can help.
I am an App Concept Developer currently working on my own mobile app startup. With no coding experience, I'm still able to create unique apps with amazing business models, monetization strategies and growth hacking abilities. From UX/UI conceptual layouts to creative features...I'm confident in my abilities to develop successful apps. Especially those that are focused on Music, Entertainment, Events and Marketing.

My Professional Strengths
All Things Creative
Being nicknamed by friends and colleagues as “Creative Genius” I would have to say that my ability to come up with musical compositions, stage productions, video content, websites, branding materials, event concepts, marketing campaigns and mobile app concepts, all leads to the fact that CREATIVITY is my strong point.
Along with CREATIVITY my next best attribute is EXECUTION. Whatever idea that I create, I immediately execute. Rather it’s a song or a startup venture – it is thought of, written, planned, organized and executed immediately. This mindset has helped me become the serial entrepreneur that I am today. What good is an idea that remains in your head? The key to success is proper EXECUTION!
