Learning something new every day.

  1. The second Y’heard Me? Music industry summit was a great success! We had between 60-70 musicians attend the event, and the feedback was tremendous. 

We changed the format for the event this time around, and it provided for a much more interactive experience for our participants!

  5. Above are a few photos from the Y’heard Me? Music Industry Summit which took place at the Ellis Marsalis Center. on a beautiful Saturday in March!  

    Producing this event was a great experience, and the event was met with much enthusiasm from the musicians/music industry professional who attended! 

    Our team learned a lot about how an event like this should be structured and organized and we’re looking forward to creating an even better experience for our attendees and partners next time around! 

    We’ll be announcing future dates for events soon! 

  6. My Experience with the Google Community Leaders Program in New Orleans

    This is a post I was asked to write for the NYU career center blog. Next year, the CLP will expand to Harlem and I was asked to write this post to help recruit students from NYU.

    For the past two years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with the Google Community Leaders Program in New Orleans.

    When our team first came together in September 2012, we were briefed by the following statistic:

    - 97% of internet users look online for local products, services, or charitable opportunities yet 64% of businesses in Louisiana do not have a website.

    If the vast majority of people are searching for local products and services online, and a business doesn’t have a web presence, they are virtually invisible in the eyes of the consumer.

    So, 16 of us from four universities were split into 4 teams, and each team was assigned to a neighborhood in New Orleans. We were tasked to get as many businesses online leading up to Super Bowl XLVII in February 2013 as we could.  

    We started by canvassing our neighborhoods for businesses and working with the business owners to get them on Google Maps and using Google Tools.

    By February 2013, the CLP had empowered 160 businesses to get online!

    As we’ve continued our work, and as the program has expanded, I’ve been able to combine my passion for music with the mission of the CLP. I now lead a team that teaches musicians how to expand their business by empowering them to use internet tools.

    Through the work that my team has done with the CLP, the Mayors office of New Orleans approached me to organize a series of presentations and workshops for the musicians of New Orleans to better understand the business of music.

    Additionally, while I’ve been involved with the CLP, I’ve co-organized the first two Startup Weekend events in New Orleans, the second of which was a featured part of Google’s Global Entrepreneurship week!

Loved the landscaping! I could spend hours upon hours on that porch!
