My dad was a happy-go-lucky kind of guy. A good looking man who liked to drink, play golf, hang out with his buddies and have fun. He was also a slack parent who let me get away with almost anything, especially during the holiday season, which made it easy for me to discover the calming effects of alcohol before I knew how to spell it.
I’ve been clean and sober since February 1985, and I’ve worked in the entertainment industry since 1992. My many jobs have included festival director, concert promoter, and show producer. I’m also familiar with just about every type of production job related to staging a show, including finding ways to keep artists from drinking on stage
