Coleen’s passion is within being that inspirational fire and directional guide for her artists and within all that she is and does. From her humble beginnings as a club DJ back in the 80’s to being the field sales rep for Universal Music Group, (which at the time distributed MCA, Geffen, DGC, Motown, GRP records) Coleen knows the inner workings of the music business on many levels. A graduate of Columbia College with a BA in Music Business Management, in which during this time she also completed an internship with MCA records as an assistant to the MCA Midwest Radio Promotion staff, is where many of the skills that she utilizes today within her music management company came to be honed.

Working with clients such as Tower Records, Virgin Records and many Indi stores. She co-founded Dr. Robert’s Productions with her husband Steve Spapperi. Through assisting Steve with locating bands and artists for him to engineer/produce, booking his sessions, and other music business operations, this production company worked with bands such as Ministry,Die Warzau, Rev.
