  • Manager/Brand Developer
    Seattle, WA
    2010 - 2012

    From late 2010 to late 2012, I worked with Jordan Cook in developing a band, and branding the project as "Reignwolf." I managed and booked shows for the band from 2011-2012 during which time, I created a media package including videos, artwork, and other highly visible aesthetics that helped get the project on board with the William Morris Endeavor, who began booking larger shows after only 6 months.
