I work closely with people; negotiating contracts and fees, networking, booking venues and musicians, mentoring students and co-managing my band Tribal State. My passion lies in music, however I'm not limited to it. I thrive to learn new skills in areas completely unrelated, for example I'm currently perfecting meditation and hand stands. I work as a general laborer because I like physical work, and  to free my mind of the mundane. I am eager to work; what i lack in education i gain in my ability to take on instruction and learn quickly. I am Kinesthetic; i work well on my feet and I'm a practical problem solver. Family man and father of two, my goal in life is to Build an Empire.
