"I love music yet I don’t play any instrument.  Still, I knew I wanted to do something with music, so I decided to become a booking agent for bands and artists.  While at Eagle Productions - Canada I had the job of coordinating between artists, talent buyers and venue operators.  I found that I was good at it and I have a natural flare for assisting artists and venue operators alike.  I love my job!"

"There are many reasons why I stay involved in the music business, sure I enjoy the music itself, but also the creative process in general.  My personal passion lies in live performances, not necessarily being on the stage, but making it all come together.  There is something magical that happens when a diverse group of people gather to assemble all the components necessary for a live performance to happen. Then the band takes the stage and all the hard work becomes invisible and the audience goes on an amazing journey."

A few of my favorite quotes:

"The best thing about the music industry is that 98% of the people can hate you, yet you can still be a star...If only 2% buy your record, you'll sell 4 and 1/2 million copies." - Willie Nelson

"Never forget that this is show business, the business is all about the show... So go first class or don't go at all" - Ernest Tubb

"The music business is like any other business in that no-one is going to invest in you if won't invest in yourself, and no-one is going to work hard for you if you're not working hard yourself" - Shelby Singleton

"Success is what happens when preparation meets opportunity, if you're ready all the time, you don't gotta get ready" - Will Smith
