I am a Music Festival Assistant Coordinator at SXSW and the host of SXSWfm's rock specialty show, The Backbeat.

I have my Bachelor's in Music Management and Public Relations from Georgia State University and my Master's in Entertainment Business from Full Sail University. I have been working in the music industry since 2009 and relocated to Austin from Atlanta two years ago to continue to pursue my chosen career field.

Some of my favorite bands include The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Growlers, Elastica, Diamond Rugs, T. Rex, and Bear In Heaven.

When I'm not at work you can catch me attending concerts and other festivals or kicking it with my Doberman Pinscher, Bowie.
