Governors Ball
I grew up in New York City, went to college at Tulane University in New Orleans, and since my adolescent days as a punk rock kid hanging out on St. Marks Place, I knew I wanted to put on shows. While in college I teamed up with Superfly Productions and somehow parlayed an internship into a full-time job, which I went on to hold for 6 years. As the Director of the Superfly Events Group, I focused on operations and project management and worked on marquee events such as Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Vegoose, Superfly During Jazzfest, the Life is Good festival, and multiple music marketing programs. After learning as much as I possibly could, I decided it was time to leave Superfly and work for myself. I did this with one goal in mind: bring my home town a major music festival they could call their own. We now have two major music festivals NYC can call their own, and it’s only just begun.
