I was born in Lafayette, Louisiana and spent most of my time through high school in the state of Texas. Following that I made a big jump and moved to Laramie, Wyoming where I attended the University of Wyoming and received a degree in Marketing. I love the outdoors and often go camping, hiking, climbing and skiing. When I'm not outside I can be found tinkering around and experimenting with electronics. I'm also a huge movie buff with a huge collection that could rival a rental store (Do those still exist?). There are lots of great movies out there but none can beat Tommy Boy in my book; comedy rocks! At Townsquare Media Corporate, I work with the Live Events and Digital departments running the websites and Social Media for concerts and festivals in cities across the US.
