WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PROJECT FROM THE PAST AND WHY
Staging A World Crisis- creating a mock NATO Summit response exercise. Amazing month-long experience in the JNIC at Schriever Air Force Base. Also the super secret Nicki Minaj concert in Times Square for Nokia. Spending a few nights people watching during overnight set-ups. People are crazy. Finally, one of the MTV movie awards where I ran into Mini Me….literally. Or he ran into me…Freaked me out.
FAVORITE SHOW VENUE
The Rotunda Ballroom at the end of Navy Pier in Chicago. Weird I know, but such a cool venue with a lot of history behind it, and great memories of doing shows there when I was a kid and new to the business.
WHY COWORKERS ARE GREAT
Because they work hard, do a great job, and are friendly. Most of all, they care. Plus they are the best looking group of people in the industry.
WORLDSTAGE IN ONE WORD
BEST THING ABOUT YOUR CITY
Nashville is Music City. Friendly people, great food, beautiful countryside, and great music. The city continues to grow and attract more visitors and events every year. People in this town are born with music in their lives and you can hear it all around. Both my parents were music teachers so I love the vibe down here. Three chords and the truth can change the world.
Hunting, fishing, swimming, watching TV while sitting in my recliner, boating, riding my John Deere, spending time with my daughter.
WHY DO YOU ENJOY WORKING FOR WS
The variety. Never a dull moment, never gets boring, and you never know what’s around the next corner.
