My interests in jazz are:
Professionally, I cover the music as executive producer and host of Spotlight On (www.spotlightonpodcast.com) and as a contributor to All About Jazz. Professionally, I have been a listener for 30+ years.
More about what I do:
Working at the crossroads of technology, creative media, commerce and community, my mission is to bring fans closer to the artists and experiences they love.

Throughout my career I have worked with, and on behalf of, a variety of entertainment artists and brands to help them grow and shape their relationships with their fans. This work has included producing and executive producing dozens of websites, online events and campaigns, film and video projects as well as Grammy-nominated and Clio-winning products. Even a pair of experiential pop-up retail locations for a global music icon.

As a commentator, I have been featured in Rolling Stone, Billboard Magazine, Hollywood Reporter, Wall Street Journal and many others. My speaking and panelist engagements have included repeat appearances at the Billboard Touring Conference, among others. I am a published writer on both business and cultural topics and am involved as a charity board member and volunteer within my community.
