Her focus will be creating and collaborating on events for DMSC with the rest of the venue management team. She is also a reality TV expert so if you have any questions about The Real Housewives, she’s your girl.

To mask the pain, he’s slowly destroying his eardrums with the mix of punk rock, indie-folk and emo he has within his 8,500-song Spotify library. Adam is also an expert chef when it comes to microwaving Ramen and Lean Cuisine.
