Back In The Game

 This is Corey Mann from PulseFM in South Bend, IN and my good friend, Britt Nicole. This was taken on one of my final promo trips in 2010. I'm looking forward to getting out on the road again to visit friends at radio! Corey is a great dude. He's also a great artist...seriously legit! You can see his drawings on his  Instagram feed . You can also buy them.

It's a new era! After several years in marketing, brand management and artist management, I'm back on the phones talking with my friends at Christian radio again. I've missed it and have enjoyed picking up where we left off. To everyone at radio, thanks for welcoming me back!

I'm incredibly grateful to Chris Hauser and Grant Hubbard for their encouragement and help as I've jumped back in the game. Thanks to Steve Ford, Kris Love and Jen Allen at Centricity Music for bringing me in on the new singles from Jason Gray and Lauren Daigle. Also, I'm excited to be able to introduce Rodney Jerkins' new label venture, Lifestyle Music Group, to radio this summer with the launch of their new album for Joy Enriquez.

I'm glad to be back!
