An inside look at people in the entertainment industry. From doormen, dj’s and promoters to venue owners, managers, and booking agents. In their own words find out how they got where they are, and where they are going.

I’m working on a series of interviews with people in the industry called How I Got Here. The interview is conducted via email. I would send you questions and then from your answers I would also send some follow up questions. 2-3 photos of you would be needed to go with the article. If you feel you are qualified and would like to be interviewed send me an email with maybe a paragraph telling me a bit about yourself and what you do –

already scheduled to be interviewed:
Robbie Kowal of Sunset Promotions (San Francisco)
DJ Z-Trip (Los Angeles)
Anthony Sanchez of Runaway Productions (Portland)
Mike Maietta of CEG Presents (New York)
Gabe Gurrola of Kons Photography + Design (Portland)
Michael Krouse of Madrone Art Bar (San Francisco)
