Kate Jane Shrapnel

I am an independently contracted tour merchandise retailer and merchandise manager. I am extremely responsible and always put the band before myself when it comes to making money. At times I have handled 3 separate merchandise tables at once for 3 different artists because I have amazing multitasking skills. Even in school I excel in mathematics and have proficient money handling skills. During tours I like to keep tour inventory professional, neat and organized using Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. As well I have a super positive attitude and a grounded head on my shoulders so even in the most stressful of tour situations I can keep cool and just get done what needs to get done. My music knowledge is vast and the most important component of my life, I play in 3 bands when I am not touring and doing merch and work at a custom tattoo shop and occult art gallery in my free time at home. I Live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the USA. I can travel when necessary and especially for when you’re company is part of American tours I will be your top representative if you like. So far all of my experience is from friends in the actual bands who know i do a professional job, look out for the bands above my own interests and am a cool person to be around!!
