The most exciting part about working for a small company is that I get to try jobs I'd never get to do anywhere else. Since we're such a small team, I act as floor director at live interviews. I keep pace to make sure the performance and subsequent interview aren't running long or short. I also make sure we're following the topics we planned on and I find audience members prior to the show, who want to ask questions.
All in all, it's a pretty fun job. Plus, it doesn't hurt that we get to hear private sound checks and chat with the artists after.
When I met Cody Simpson (above) I swooned. I know, I'm way older than him but I had a total teen girl moment. We had a meet and greet and one awesome fan brought a marriage certificate for him to sign (smart cookie).
When ANDPOP interviewed Karmin, I laughed with lead singer Amy Heidemann about trying deep fried butter balls at the Ex. She was so... normal! We didn't have a meet and greet scheduled but she stayed after to take photos with all the fans.
