2. Childhood celebrity crush
A tie between Elvis, who sang to every woman he was courting in almost all his movies - I found it so romantic - and Steve Austin, aka Six Million Dollar Man. Lee Majors was really hot in the 70’s.
3. How did you get involved with Pelonkey?
I’ve known Nicole for a few years and was always impressed with her energy and outlook. When I heard about Pelonkey I was intrigued. When I met the team and looked into the advisory board, I was hooked. I love being part of something that disrupts an established industry.
4. What will you be doing for Pelonkey?
I’m the Generator of Possibilities, which means I’ll be leading the team in generation of connections, leads, development opportunities, and making connections. I’ll be responsible for making things happen that were not going to happen anyway. In an average company, the closest position might be called a Director of Sales.
5. What is your background?
My background is in sales, development, team building, and management. I was the director of a non-profit, an entrepreneur, a community leader, a graphic designer, and wore a lot of other hats in my life. I am also very passionate about personal growth and helping other people achieve their own greatness.
6. Favorite kind of music
I love singer-songwriter types of music. I listen for a story in the lyrics, for love, for overcoming, and for self-expression. This makes everything from Elvis to Whitney Houston to Michael Jackson to Adele pop up in my playlists.
7. Best vacation you’ve ever been on
I took a tour with a group for 2 weeks in Southern Africa. We went to the best safari camps in several countries. It was amazing to see the circle of life in action, in real time and in an untouched-by-man way.
8. What can event planners and entertainers expect from you respectively?
Everyone can expect that I will deliver the intentions of Pelonkey at its best to the absolute best of my ability. Disrupting an industry is a challenge and in most cases pays off for the early adapters. I’ll be working hard to get people to play their respective roles and to give this a shot by urging them to go to the site for their all their entertainment industry needs, and I’ll be beating a consistent drum.

10. Favorite Twitter or Instagram account
I love my Twitter feed () and have an assortment of local blogs, celebrity rants, gay news, politics, personal journey thought providers, and creatives, but no one account stands out.
