Where do you get your ideas from?
Fairytales….joke, I get my ideas from the quote living the dream, you kind of think of what people really want or strive for and tailor an event around something that people would love to do or be a part of.
What other promoters or venues do you get inspiration from?
Actually my buddy John Keenan, owner of RedCarpetWorcester.com, and Greg Avila GSJ Productions they throw down some of the sickest nights you will ever see.
What do you like about your job?
You get to meet some wild people, see a lot of new places, see how and what works well for marketing projects.
What do you dislike about your job?
Long hours, fast food, lots of alcohol= more time at the gym working it all off= more tired…ha-ha
Why do you believe so many people are trying to become promoters?
All people see is that someone’s being paid to party…and they want in on that, but there is a lot of hard work, and money involved in promoting.
What is something about promotions that the public doesn’t know?
That sometimes promoters take on a lot of risk at their event…say you book some Hollywood star for $12,000 for the 3 hours he/she will be at your venue, if it’s a fluke and no one shows up… your responsible for paying for this star to be there. Luckily that hasn’t happened to me…lol
What makes you successful?
I am a people person I like talking to people and meeting new people, you learn a lot from them, and it helps you become more successful in the long run because you get a lot of positive and negative feedback in a good way from people.
