I provide Musicians and Small Business Owners with the tools they need to build their brands.
I've spent the last decade learning from and working with some of the most incredibly talented musicians, designers, and small business owners in and around the Lone Star State.
Ever since I was in elementary school, I knew in my heart that I wanted to be an interior designer. Those plans changed after I answered an ad on Craig's List to intern in the PR department for a major touring fashion show that had a stop in Austin, TX in 2008. Soon after the show wrapped, I began interning for a rock/jam band that had regular gigs
on 6th street and toured pretty heavily throughout the Southwest. The bassist happened to be in marketing (go figure, right?!) and was looking to train someone to handle the promo for their upcoming shows.
I was 18 and still pretty green, but
I quickly learned the ins and outs
of the music business.
My days used to be filled with my "regular" job at the University Bookstore and I would spend my nights out on 6th street with the bands I was promoting. I spent a bit more than I probably should have on eating out (and paid for it by gaining the "freshman 15 (or 20)" , but the experience I gained in those few short years would prove to be invaluable to my career.
In 2010, right after I moved to Houston, I interned with a breast cancer awareness organization and then landed my first professional gig as a Publicist for a start-up fashion magazine. From there, I was introduced to many amazing designers, several of whom I've had the pleasure of organizing special events for.
Later that same year, I began working with musicians again and pretty soon I had a full client list of my own.
In early 2011, my uncle passed away from Leukemia and from that point forward I decided I wanted to find something that would honor him.
As much fun as I was having working with designers and musicians, I kept feeling like I wanted to take my career in a different direction.
I continued providing PR services for musicians for a few years and then, in 2015, I made the decision to put my career on hold to figure out what it was I felt like I was "missing" in my life.
That September, I came across a children's organization that provides a week-long summer camp for children who have survived trauma. The camp was founded in honor of the co-founders' son who had survived childhood Leukemia. I took this as a sign and immediately contacted them about a small, part-time gig they had open as an assistant. Upon interviewing with the co-founders, I found out they were musicians and they were in need of PR services for both of their non-profits as well as their music career. Funny how life works!
It seems no matter how much I plan on changing things up, I always seem to find myself back in the music business in some form. I've decided it's probably best I stop fighting it. ;)
These days you can find me taking behind-the-scenes shots in the recording studio or on the set of a new music video, designing promotional items for upcoming events, training for my first full marathon, or updating social media for some of your favorite Texas musicians! You name it, I (probably) do it!
If you ever see me out and about, come say hi!
