After nearly three years at Superfly, I am hanging up my hat. 2018 brought a lot of changes for me both personally and professionally and the time felt right to follow my heart and move my life to Nashville; something I’ve had on the back burner for about six years.
Saying my time at Superfly was special is the understatement of my life. Not only did I make friendships that I will cherish as long as I live, I got to do some really cool shit and work with really incredible teams. This was my first real position in the music and event space, stepping outside of my heavy big-brand advertising box and into a much more creative and passionate world. Everyone here gives a damn. Everyone here is brilliant and passionate about what they do.
You see, we spend upwards of a year on any one festival, year over year over year. Add anywhere from 3-5 mega festivals per year to that and you’ve got yourself not just one but a couple of full plates. We work tirelessly on these events that last just three days out of the year; it’s insane. But when the time comes and that event happens, the feelings, the smiles, the togetherness and the vibes make every ache and mental pain more than worth it.
To my teams - both brand marketing and design - you’re incredible. Your hearts are big, your creativity is vast and your dedication is always at the maximum. It will be hard to find a team that measures up. I am grateful for what I have learned and what this has given me to apply to the future. I leave you with the Outside Lands recap. It was a blessing to end my tenure working on my favorite festival, one last time.
