When I Started Performing: My first performing experience was singing in church at 8 years old. I started taking much more seriously in 6th grade as a member of my high school jazz band.
Performing Arts Background: I studied jazz performance in college, and performed on stage as a singer/actor in high school and college.
How did your performing arts background supercharge your entrepreneurship? My background as a performer gave me a strong ability to listen and adapt to what is going on around me. Whether playing in a jazz ensemble or strategizing with my Board of Directors, these skills really benefit me as an entrepreneur.
Favorite Performer: Mandolinist/vocalist Chris Thile. In addition to his talent as a performer, he has spent his career innovating and advancing the art form, unafraid to try new things.
