I grew up in Michigan, so I spent most of my childhood exploring the outdoors – going to the Great Lakes, camping in the woods, gardening, or exploring our big back yard. I remember the first time I listened to contemporary Christian music – it blew my mind. I didn’t know music like that existed. I was super nerdy about it and got my hands on as many CDs as I could find – reading the liner notes, following industry blogs, magazines, and Twitter accounts, and studying tour routing. What was kind of a strange hobby turned into something I could actually pursue as a career. I loved that the music industry would combine my love for people, Christian music, organization, and the church.
I am passionate about taking the gospel to new places through music, live events, and conversations. I love learning about new methods of delivery and discovery through Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, and Pandora optimization. I also thrive on the details – I loving being able to handle the details so it frees artists to spend more time with their art.
On a typical weekend, you can often find me hiking, kayaking, checking out a random event I found on Facebook, or organizing an event with my worship team or small group.
