I grew up in a musical family so I suppose the desire to work in the entertainment industry started at birth. My father was a drummer in a band until I was well into middle school so I’ve always been around music. When I got into my teen years I realized I had no musical talent of my own, but the business side of it always fascinated me. I knew that I wanted to work behind the scene; I just didn’t know what facet. When I graduated from college in 2002, I randomly fell into entertainment insurance, and once I learned the ins and outs of insuring touring entertainers, I realized this was a career that I could be passionate about – it ultimately involves helping artists be successful, and being there for them when accidents happen. Like the founder of this site I moved to Nashville not knowing a soul in 2005.

 
I joined Music Biz Besties because I am interested in the opportunities to network, learn from others or serve as a mentor to new professionals, and also to give back to the community. I’m interested in meeting more people locally and offering my knowledge and experience with respect to insurance/risk management.
