Why did you want to work at WMG?

In my younger days, I used to DJ and produce music, so when I got the opportunity to join Warner, it was a chance to combine my professional life with my passion.

What’s one word you would use to describe WMG’s company culture?

Respect. We are ambitious, and management expects us to deliver, but at the same time, we treat each other nicely and with respect. We also have the privilege of working with a living product. Our artists are their own product. That is a big responsibility and I appreciate the trust they give us, and we return that with respect and a very professional approach.

What advice you would give someone trying to get into the music industry?

Take any job in the industry you can get and work hard. Then share your ambitions with your manager. I’ve seen so many people change lanes within the industry.
