From as far back as i can remember…

I have been fascinated with telling stories and bringing diverse groups of people together. That commitment is at the heart of my work in the arts, communications and politics. Whether it is organizing a benefit concert of local musicians for a worthy cause, or working with patients to talk about a chronic condition that brings pain and shame…. I enjoy tackling the challenge of breaking through the noise for you to dominate the conversation own YOUR narrative.

My career has taken me from the halls of Congress to the countryside of rural Illinois. Whether its organizing a media tour, coordinating international artists for a concert or teaching a violin lesson to youth in an impoverished neighborhood, I am equally comfortable moving in between worlds.

Take a look at my professional reel and some of the campaigns, causes and organizations that energize and excite me.
