VP Sales and Marketing

I’ve been involved with music in one way or another for most of my life, I started playing piano at five, guitar at six and joined the band program shortly thereafter. Part of the draw to music is likely genetic, as my grandfather was a collegiate band director, and both of my parents are musical. (mother plays banjo, father plays guitar and trombone) I grew up in southeastern Wisconsin and moved to Spearfish, South Dakota just after my first year of high school. Shortly after moving I started my first band and a gig in downtown Spearfish sparked an involvement in what would eventually become Downtown Friday Nights (the event that started Anniecreek.) As a spawn from Downtown Friday Nights, I ended up getting into running a sound board and eventually starting my own production company. From my work with sound reinforcement for multiple weekly outdoor events, I started working as a sound consultant for Anniecreek and moved into sales. The work I do here plays a special role in my life as not only a sound tech, but also as a musician and member of the community. Getting to play a role in creating new opportunities for musicians is extremely fulfilling not only in a professional sense, but also on a  personal level. If it had not been for the opportunities created by music I wouldn’t have met my wife. Kortney and I met in 2013 while attending Black Hills State University and studying music,  we got married in September of 2016 and moved to Sioux Falls, SD immediately afterwards so she could finish student teaching. We currently live in Sioux Falls where Kortney is an Elementary Orchestra teacher and I am working on helping towns across the midwest start their own community based events.
