New Brunswick, New Jersey is known for its long-lived underground arts community, where DIY ethos are strong. Unable to get an entry level music industry job, I decided to build from the ground up and connect with countless amazing artists and people in a place where some of my favorite bands came out of. It was heaven. I booked and produced shows each week at bars and restaurants, bringing new people together for the love of music. My passion and drive to produce not just a show, but an experience, helped bring tons of talented bands out of the basements and into new audiences. I currently book at the Madison Community Arts Center, and The Asbury Hotel, but New Brunswick will always have my heart.
