Where music, business, marketing, and technology all come together.
A passion for music + love of business = destined to work in the music business.
I’ve always had the bug for music starting from when my dad used to take me to see orchestras before I can even remember and was apparently mezmorized by them. Throughout school years and part of college, I was in the chorus. When there wasn’t one in the private high school I was going to, I pushed for one, and eventually became the first chorus president.
For almost two decades after that, I’ve had the great experience of working for many small business owners in positions that require one to “wear many hats”. Remarkably, my first professional job was working for a Korean business-woman, Jin-Hyun Ahn, wife of the infamous Korean singer, Cho-Yong Pil, who gave me a taste not only for business in its truest form, but also for the music business. My career moved more in the direction of business management, until 2004, when it hit me, why not combine the two? The next year, I enrolled in Omega Recording Studios School’s Music Business program and formed D Management (later becoming Real Rock Entertainment). In 2006, I was approached by someone trying to start up a new recording label. Although the label never took off, I was able to meet artists that I wound up working with.
