New City. New House. New Car. New Dog. New Gig. #NEWLIFE

Uh. So some things have changed…

Back in late June we up and relocated to Nashville. We have a real life house with more bedrooms than we need, I have a car for the first time since 2014 when I sold it and moved to NYC, we adopted a dog and - I have a new and very exciting venture.

My first few months here I stayed on remotely helping my Superfly team get through on last Outside Lands and it was magical. I knew there would likely be a bit of lag time because I didn’t want to settle for just any job. I’m finally here in a city I have loved and longed to be in - so settling was really an option. Enter Centric Entertainment. A new start up that launched earlier this year, focusing on music artists and the entertainment space. I’m a part of a small but fierce team and I couldn’t be more excited to see what the future holds for this place and for myself. Here’s to NEW!

The Lost Lake 2017 Afterglow

It was a weekend for the books and a year and a half in the making for me. By far my most challenging project and festival to date, but man did we leave beaming. This is why we do what we do. 

It's been an incredible honor to celebrate the vibrant culture of the Valley of the Sun with you. We're so grateful for the creativity, energy and support of the Phoenix community that came together around the lake this weekend. Fans, artists, staff, vendors, and volunteers... You make this magic happen.

Denver music festival: Superfly’s new Phoenix fest offers a glimpse of what’s to come

Denver Post - The Know
PHOENIX — As darkness fell on Steele Indian School Park on Sunday, hundreds of people gathered to watch the giant metal lotuses on the lake bloom with flames. The flowers, which appeared to float innocuously on the water all day, were rigged to shoot fire several feet on the hour after sunset in sync with songs such as Rage Against the Machine’s “Bulls on Parade” and Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

Best of Bonnaroo 2016: Haim, Andra Day, Crawfish, BonnaGrannies & More

Billboard
Though it was the first year Live Nation had fully taken over, Bonnaroo began and ended just as it always had for the past 15 years: with crawfish. The annual Manchester, Tennessee-based music and arts festival kicked off Thursday (June 9) night with a crawfish boil hosted by Chris "Shaggy" Davis of NOLA Crawfish King whose tent, refrigerated trucks and 4,000 pounds of crustaceans remained nestled in the woods among a sea of tents and pathways lit by string lights over the four day event.

JetBlue: "Reach Across the Aisle"

I love it when we can all just get along and work together.

In a stunt that has gone viral, JetBlue leveraged the timely cultural climate of the presidential primaries for an in-flight activation that got passengers to literally Reach Across the Aisle. The 150 passengers aboard a flight from Boston to Phoenix were told they would win a free round-trip ticket to one of 20 domestic or international destinations served by JetBlue—but only if they could all agree on a single destination by unanimous vote before the six-hour flight landed.
