What made you fall in love with music?
Lyrics have always been the way to my heart. If I can relate to the lyrics, then I like the music!

Best concert you have ever been to?
My most memorable show was Eric Church in 2012 at the Bayside Pavilion near my hometown in Calvert County, Maryland. It was about a month before I moved to Nashville, so a lot of my friends and family came out as a “going-away” celebration for me. It was such a fun show!

What genre of music do you listen to the most?
Country music! To me, you just can’t beat the stories!

Who’s your favorite artist/band?
Alan Jackson. My first concert was actually an Alan Jackson show. I was in the 4th grade!

What do you like most about working at NSAI?
My love of songs is what prompted me to pursue a career in the music industry, so to have the opportunity at NSAI to work with songwriters and be an advocate for them is amazing! For me, it really is all about the song!
