First, I used my marketing skills to get my music heard around the world. Then I qualified for multiple GRAMMY nominations on both albums. This gave me credibility when I launched my online marketing business, Rock Star Marketing. The next step naturally led to marketing for my next business, The West Coast Swing Dance Company, which is a culmination of my lifelong passion for dance and music. I've enjoyed the circular motion of my path toward success, and it gets better and more fun with each passing day!
