Angela is a music entrepreneur, publicist, and educator with a passion for helping emerging artists reach the next level in their craft. Five years ago, she founded her own PR agency — Muddy Paw PR — to help passionate, driven artists develop more effective public campaigns and garner coverage that will move their careers forward. Today, the Muddy Paw family has become a "a tireless, thriving, spirited force," getting placements in top publications such as Alternative Press, Noisey, Substream, Idobi New Noise, and more.
Angela has been immersed in the world of music since 2009 when she started her own music blog Infectious Magazine, where she fielded press releases, coordinated artist coverage, and managed 10–15 writers. Since then, she has spoken on panels at SXSW 2016, Indie Week 2015, CMW 2016, and CD Baby's DIY Musician Conference 2018, and is the Co-Founder and Director of Community and Events for the music industry accelerator Music Launch Co.
She's excited to work with students to challenge the status quo in a way that pushes them and their dreams inexorably forward and creates a better music industry for everyone.
