Lights Out Festival
An online magazine influencing millenial culture on trends in music, fashion, sneakers, sports, and entertainment daily.
I pivoted my websites online reach of over 80,000 monthly readers who trusted my music taste and started to book up and coming musicians before they reached national attention.
One of my favorite accomplishments.
I took out student loans to chase my dreams in the music industry. Orchestrated the very first concert tour for rising hip hip artist Wale, in FL. Leveraging my connections at all the major university venues & promoters, I turned my capitol investment of $5,000 into $40,000 my very first concert..
