Every fan, every consumer, and even every bystander enjoys different content, spends time on different platforms, and has different expectations for messaging. So how can you reach such a diverse audience through marketing and media? To be as diverse as the audience itself, we’ll speak with representatives from across the entertainment industry including Theatre, Music, Movies, TV, and Streaming.

Together, we’ll get a better look at how to find, grow, and maintain your audience. Find out more here.

Talent is also the most important part of the equation. If you don’t have proper talent, there’s nothing to air. I recognized it was an integral element of any process, and I wanted to be a part of it.” Born and raised just outside of Los Angeles in San Bernardino, CA, she attended the prestigious Annenberg School for Communications & Journalism at University of Southern California. Studying the culture of the entertainment industry in class and after hours, she went on to intern at ABC Entertainment as part of the Emma Bowen Foundation—which supports minority interest in media.

She spent two years at Complex Media as a Celebrity Producer Consultant, proving integral to the launch of Complex TV. 2013 saw her join Revolt in the role of Director, Music & Talent Relations. Among many highlights, she handled talent for the Revolt Music Conference over the course of four years in Miami. Often securing 25-plus acts annually, she landed performances by everyone from DJ Khaled, Khalid, and SZA to Lauryn Hill, 21 Savage, and Nas in between numerous panels. Additionally, she transformed Revolt’s SXSW house into the hottest in Austin. She would also spearhead The Global Spin Awards highlighted by choosing Snoop Dogg at the host and landing A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Metro Boomin, Usher, Pharrell, and more.
