Location Indianapolis, IN, United States
Introduction I'm a classically trained musician (with an insatiable appetite for discovering new Jazz & Reggae music) who has been actively performing since 1986. I hold music, audio and business degrees and work internationally as an executive with a diverse background in audio/video production, consumer electronics and telecommunications. Drawing on my real world education and experience, I consistently follow the evolution and intersections of entertainment, social media and technology. I'm passionate about teaching and helping others and enjoy sharing my knowledge and experiences as a guest speaker and panelist. Currently, I'm in charge of Strategic Business Development-M2M, focusing on Global Alliances for Rogers Communications. I also play trumpet/flugelhorn in The Tides Band based out of Indianapolis, IN.
