Originally from Houston TX, graduated high school in Austin TX, currently based in Arlington (DFW) TX... started out in Fine Arts, Graphic Arts, Music, and Horticulture - your basic treehuggin' hippy chick "MIT" (Muse In Training) who dreamed of a ecologically sound commune in the mountains... first job experiences were in radio promotions, moved into programming and on-air talent, then on to a major record label where I started in promotions, moved into A&R, basically decided artists deserved better and left the industry to pursue a career in graphic design and marketing... took time off to have three awesome kids (born at home, no less) who are now all growing into beautiful young people whose company I love most... during my time as a "stay-at-home" mom, I studied holistic health for nine years and became a Master certified Herbalist and Practitioner... my love of music, art, promotions, production, event planning, and creative people drew me back into the entertainment industry... been bustin' my rear to make a difference in the world ever since... here's a run down of what I'm into currently:
INFINITE SOURCE PRODUCTIONS, my own company established in 1985, providing an array of creative services, event production, promotions & marketing, stage & touring management, and talent buying/booking as well as representing exceptional original music artists like GIZMO and LIFT as well as some of the best tribute acts in Texas such as the legendary SWAN SONG - A Tribute to Led Zeppelin, BEBE LE STRANGE - A Tribute to Heart, KOZMIC THRILLS - The Ultimate Janis Joplin Experience, SOUL SACRIFICE - The Santana Tribute, THE PURPLE PROJECT - A Tribute to Deep Purple, THE ONE PERCENT BAND - A rockin' Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute, and several more.
