I created Reverse Thread in 2006 with one goal in mind: to work steadfastly with people that I respect without interruptions or compromises, helping this small group of talented individuals reach their goals.
After 20+ years of traveling as a Tour Manager and FOH Sound Engineer I retired from touring in the ‘90s and worked for Bill Graham Presents in San Francisco as production manager at The Fillmore, The Warfield and a number of other bay area venues.
In 2001 I moved to New York and spent the next 5 years at David Whitehead’s highly respected firm Maine Road Management. At the time of my departure the music roster included David Bowie, David Byrne, Luna, Joe Henry, Beth Orton, Helmet, Dean and Britta, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Air, Jim White, Laura Cantrell and Joe Ely; and the producer roster featured Kevin Killen, Ryan Freeland, Tucker Martine and others.
Returning to full time touring and festival production in 2012 has been a great experience and I remain enthusiastic about traveling the world utilizing the skills I acquired in Artist Management to great effect in my current roles as Tour Manager / Production Manager / FOH mixer.
