I have been playing, singing and writing music since I’m 10. Post college, I spent 5 years as a professional entertainer in several bands. Coming in 2017, a 10 Song Original CD of Music to be published on Itunes and various music sites.
I transitioned into broadcast radio sales and management working for Cox Radio, Clear Channel Communications and Classical WTMI-FM in Miami/Ft Lauderdale until 2007.
In February 2007, I took a ‘leap with faith’ and launched my own consultancy and training company specializing in social media, career change and professional branding and content marketing for entrepreneurs, small businesses, consultants and now with musicians, entertainers and bands.
