In college I climbed the ladder to the highly coveted position of the Director of Concerts at Syracuse University. As a first-year student I did everything in my power to get the position. I had it by Junior year, booking the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore, Travis $cott, Lil B, Twenty One Pilots, among many others.
In my first job I highlighted the person I wanted to work and learn from. Again, did everything in my power to accomplish that goal. I achieved it within four months and had a wonderful experience in learning the landscape of the music business.
In working with my first artist, I flew to his city on my own dime, spent money I didn't have to truly understand the artist's vision and how I could add value to his narrative. In turn opening a company to facilitate that vision.
In figuring out my next move I only have one contender I am truly inspired by. I will make it work and that is where my purpose points come in.
I've never had a plan B when I chased down any of these endeavors. If I had one I wouldn't have put every ounce of my being into it.
I’ve found that the only way for me to do remarkable work is to use every ounce I have…every time.
