TOUR MANAGER, PRODUCTION MANAGER, ROAD MANAGER, FOH ENGINEER, MERCHANDISE, TOUR ACCOUNTANT, CO-DRIVER (CDL CLASS A with PASSENGER ENDORSEMENT), CO-DRIVER (CDL CLASS B with PASSENGER ENDORSEMENT)

I have been in the touring industry for 20 years.  Mostly as a bus driver (DOT CERT).  I have also run the logistics of my own companies for 15 years.  My degree is from FIU in Hotel Rest/ MGMT.  I used to bar manage and bartend.  I have been a FOH/TM for 3 years between tours and have a proficiency with Master tour, at venue, excel, word, power point and other office programs.  I am a “think on my feet” problem solver who gets things done type of person. I work well with others and I’m not afraid to step in and get things done when needed.  I am a visual learner.  If you have any questions feel free to reach out any time.
