About Joseph

As a teenager, I founded a T-shirt company & successfully sold hundreds of T-shirts to proud natives of San Francisco. It started as an Economics HS project and ended up funding my Senior-year rugby trip to Argentina. I then put this venture on hold to attend college at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

From the years 18 - 26, I played rugby at the University of Colorado & graduated with a BS in Communications. I then moved back to SF & hustled as a Sr Sales Development Rep @ SocialChorus. I sourced a variety of large deals with Fortune 50 & Fortune 500 companies.

Most importantly, during this time, I became an avid live music fan. I have seen the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Paul McCartney, Fleetwood Mac, Rage Against the Machine, Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, Pretty Lights & many more artists at live venues in CO & CA such as Red Rocks Amphitheater, The Fillmore, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Hearst Greek Theatre, The Warfield, etc.

I have been on the consumer side of live music for 10 years and understand that this is a growing market within the United States driven by the Millennial generation. We value "live experiences". Live music is booming, giving birth to new 3-day music festivals, venues, & artists annually.

So, I quit my job and have began working on a way to fix a pulsating, consumer problem. There are competitors within this space, but we are in the process of building something unique. Something as unique as seeing Gary Clark Jr. performing "Bitch" with the Rolling Stones at Petco Park on May 24, 2015.

But, the journey has only just begun & I would love to hear feedback.

Thank you all.
