Discovering where you belong in this business means helping others belong.

Starting in theatre technology and lighting design, Tad discovered his strength as a producer in guiding projects without compromising creators’ visions. He appreciates First Entertainment’s understanding of the industry’s unique financial dynamics, including fluctuating incomes and 1099s.

What is the key to finding success in the entertainment industry?

Discovering where you belong in this business means helping others belong.

What inspired you to want to pursue a career as a producer?

I started my career in theatre technology and lighting design, but… I discovered I was a better “cat herder” than technologist; always looking for ways to make the best possible product without compromising the vision of the creators.

How does First Entertainment benefit you as a creator of entertainment?

The people who run First Entertainment are actually in the industry and understand all the unique ins and outs…fluctuating incomes, 1099s.

How would you compare your experiences with First Entertainment with other financial institutions you have banked with?

First Entertainment builds its services [to meet members’ financial needs]. If that doesn’t bring a sense of belonging, I’m not sure what does.
