Founder & CEO of Aware Records
I’ve been fortunate to have spent the last 20 years helping make the careers of talented artists come alive. I was passionate about the bands I worked with, and I truly wanted to help them have the career they wanted and help them become huge. When I founded Aware Records in 1993 and later A-Squared Management in 1999, my goal was to discover and elevate unsigned artists around the world. Years later, the list of artists I’ve signed and/or managed now includes household names like John Mayer, Train, Five for Fighting, The Fray, Brandi Carlile, Mat Kearney and many others. I wanted to reach more people in the next phase of my life so I decided to go back to school (at 45 years old) to earn a Master’s in the field of Positive Psychology under Dr. Martin Seligman at the University of Pennsylvania. Positive Psychology is about studying and learning how to be satisfied with the past, hopeful and optimistic about the future, and having flow and happiness in the present (Csikszentmihalyi & Seligman 2000).
