A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MADDIE
Born and raised in the Mile High City, Maddie has been working directly with countless bands of all shapes, sizes and sounds since 2008. Getting her start as an ambitious teenager producing a benefit concert at age 16, Maddie’s career began to flourish during her time at The University of Colorado Denver in the Music & Entertainment Industry Studies program. From 2010 - 2014, you could find this tiny blonde in the crowd (or behind the merch booth) at nearly every local show year round, working with acts like Flobots, Air Dubai, Bop Skizzum, My Body Sings Electric. She first hit the road as Tour Manager for Air Dubai in the spring of 2012, and continued on to oversee merch & daily operations for Chicago-based I Fight Dragons on the Vans Warped Tour during the summers of 2012 and 2014.
From 2011 - 2016, Maddie’s passion for the Denver music scene led her to the position of Music Editor for Ultra5280, working as the principal writer, editor, and one of the lead photographers for the outlet. Focusing it’s coverage on new releases and musical festivals across the country, the online music publication works to highlight Denver-based performers as they break into larger markets. A selection of her favorite work from her time with Ultra5280 can be found here.
After graduating with her degree in 2014, her resumé continued to expand, including a full-time position overseeing artist merchandise sales at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, bringing Chicago-based punk festival Riot Fest to Denver, and merch and VIP work for companies like Manhead Merchandise and Adventures in Wonderland.
In 2016, Maddie returned to the road full-time, touring with acts like the indescribable Glass Animals, electronica’s Jean-Michel Jarre, and renowned singer-songwriter Jewel. In 2017 she began working with LA-based tour and event production company Eighteentwentysix, where she uses her diverse skill set to oversee a variety of productions - ranging from private corporate gigs featuring internationally acclaimed artists, to world-wide tours.
When not on the road, she now splits her time between Denver and Los Angeles, eating all the good food she can find, taking Polaroid pictures, and watching Red Panda videos online.
