Recently moving to Boston for personal reasons, I am looking to break into the Advertising industry on any level. Having placed custom and sync music with many advertising and marketing firms, I know the high level of quality creative content made and attention to detail needed to success in this environment.
In my current role, I joined forces with a few creative buffs in the hot bed of the Brooklyn music scene, helping them get off the ground as a founder in a new look hybrid music publishing / custom music house. Never having started a business, I devoted my life into researching all the angles to create a success business, hinging my experience in the music industry as a jump off point. Even with the company moving in a good direction currently, Melody Robot will end up being a side project passion. As our business took shape in the early months, I simultaneously worked a multi-faceted position at Choate Rosemary Hall. One task was something in which I had very little experience: build a recording studio and teach a music production class.
In my previous position with Non Stop Music, I assisted the Director of Film, TV, and Advertising music for the Eastern United States, negotiated contracts for synchronization licenses and developed creative music searches to increase the licensed use of our catalogs. Focused around fresh marketing techniques and relentless follow-ups, I increased the NYC office by over 20% in sales in each of my two years of employment.
Although these experiences differ slightly from many entry level jobs, my entrepreneurial attitude fuels a desire to build from the bottom upwards. In addition, I want to put my name in the ring for any opportunities down the road that might more succinctly fit my experience in music placement, sales, management and sonic branding in house at an advertising agency.
