Los Angeles, California
Hi! I'm Sherri
I'm an entertainment publicist/public relations consultant and a professionally trained photographer/videographer living in Los Angeles, California. I'm an entrepreneur at heart and driven by my passion for creativity and a strong determination to succeed. From a very young age, I always knew I wanted to be my own boss, producing my own projects, and running my own branded company. And my passion is in the live music & entertainment world.
As a PR professional, my expertise is in publicity, promotions, and artist & media relations, and I specialize in music, film, & television. With over fifteen years of experience, I have worked closely with numerous businesses, artists, arenas/venues, and tv and radio stations. I've created full PR/Ad campaigns and set up community & business home shows.
I've been a professional photographer since 1992 - previously managing three photography studios where I photographed individual, family & couple portraits, and as a freelance photographer shooting nature & landscapes, professional headshots, models, special events, musical artists, & concerts.
I'm also the founder & owner of "Rock Show Connections," an online music magazine I originally started as a music PR company in 2009. Over the years, it evolved into a magazine where I write feature stories and news articles, conduct artist interviews, and showcase my concert photography.
Since 2014 I've also been a member of the Motion Picture industry, working freelance in film and television production on multiple feature films and tv shows for several major studios, including Warner Brothers, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, NBC Universal, Netflix, and Lionsgate and I'm currently co-producing an indie feature film. I'm a member of IATSE (International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees), the union behind entertainment.
My favorite & most important job is being a mom to my beautiful rescue dog, Apollo (a girl!), whom I saved in 2012 when she was abandoned at just a few weeks old. She's my best friend and travels everywhere with me. I'm a huge dog lover & activist and working with animal rescues is something I'm incredibly passionate about.
I'm a graduate of East Tennessee State University. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in
Mass Communication: Advertising/Public Relations and a minor in International Studies.
