Welcome, Jon!

jon ngIntroducing Jonathan Ng, IT Service Desk Administrator

I’m Jonathan Ng, most people call me Jon for short.

I’m a born bred New Yorker, and I am a proud well rounded Geek-American.

I studied Cartooning in High School (with an emphasis on comic book art). I then graduated with a BA in History (Medieval European) and studied abroad at Oxford University, studying Medieval Christian Mysticism and CS Lewis.

I’m also a gear-head and weekend musician. My current rig consists of a pre-Fender Gretsch 6119 Tennessee Rose, Pedal board (JHS/TC Electronics/EarthQuaker Devices/Eventide pedals), and a modded Vox AC15 with a Celestion Speaker from a Matchless Spitfire. Currently I’m really into the Foo Fighters, but I grew up listening to bands like P.O.D, Linkin Park, and Incubus. My current hobby consists of upgrading and flipping guitars/gear for cash; it helps facilitate my G.A.S. problem (Gear Acquisition Syndrome LOL).

I volunteer at my local church @CitylightNYC as the lead guitarist in the worship band and as a backup sound engineer.

Career-wise, I have mainly worked in the Higher Education Sector. The Orchard is the second private sector company I have been a part of and I’m glad I’m here. Look forward to working with you all!

Welcome, Emmy!

EmmyBlackIntroducing Emmy Black, Client Relations Manager, New York

Hi! I am Emmy Black, it is so nice to meet everyone! For the past five years I have been at Bar/None Records working in nearly every capacity from A&R to Digital Marketing to Product Management. I have also done some work with Playing in Traffic Records and The Noise Company during a stint in Austin.

I enjoy Waterskiing, New Jersey, Ween, and guided tours at museums. That aside, The Orchard is an amazing company and I couldn’t be more excited to join this extraordinary group of people. I look forward to working with everyone and bringing great music to the masses.

Welcome, Bernardo!

Bernardo ErwesIntroducing Bernardo Erwes, Client Relations & Marketing Manager, Brazil

First of all I would like to thank Liana Brauer for introducing me to The Orchard, and The Orchard for giving me this opportunity to work with the passion of my life that I always dreamed of being involved with somehow, which is music.

I have been a huge fan of Metal since I was around 11, but I also love Classical Music and Rock as well.

I listen to music whenever possible; on the streets, in the subway or bus, car… basically anywhere.

My favorite bands mostly come from Scandinavia, which is home to some of the best Black/Death Metal in the world. It might sound a little strange for someone who is not familiar with the genre, but Metal is founded on incredible sounds and lyrics, some of which focus on ancient History and Myths from Sweden, Norway, Finland and other European countries and also things from our daily life, but in a different “metal” way.

I am also a big fan of History, which was one of the reasons that I chose to study Law at University.

Before joining The Orchard, I worked for several years for an IP Law Office called Dannemann, Siemsen, Bigler & Ipanema Moreira. After nearly 4 years there, I wanted to try to get closer to my passion for music so when I saw an opportunity in an Online Music Agency, I chose to take a chance in this new world.

One thing led to another and now I am part of The Orchard Brazil team and it has already been a pleasure to work for this company which I realized is THE opportunity for me to work with my passion for music.

Looking forward to meeting you all and working together!

Welcome, Alberto!

AlbertoMuerzaIntroducing Alberto Muerza, Client Relations & Marketing Assistant, Spain & Portugal

Hello everyone! Some of you may know me as I’ve been working as a​n intern​ in the Spanish office for over a year now. For the rest, I’m Alberto! Hi!

My first contact with The Orchard was three years ago when I did my internship during the summer of 2011 while I was studying Music & Media Management at the London Metropolitan University. After finishing my degree, I spent a few months getting more work experience at Universal Music Publishing at their UK offices, but as I was missing a lot my sunny Barcelona, I decided that it was about time to come back home. So after a greasy re-encounter with the Spanish Orchardites (we went to a burger place for lunch), I was back on board at The Orchard.

When I’m not at The Orchard, it is quite likely that you can find me running in Montjuic, a mountain close to the city and one of the nicest places in town, or having drinks with my friends at any bar, which at some point in the evening, any bar can also be one the nicest place in town.

Interesting fact: during my last year at college I was one of the winners of the Marketing and Promotional Orchard campaign for the artist Mike Viola.

I hope I get the chance to meet and work with you very soon.

Welcome, Des!

DesFiniganIntroducing Desiree Finigan, Office Administrator, Film & TV, Los Angeles

Hi Everyone, my name is Desiree Finigan, but feel free to call me Des.

I’m a native Californian from the San Francisco Bay Area, which makes me a proud and faithful 49ers and SF Giants fan. I found my way to Los Angeles when I was accepted to Loyola Marymount University, and graduated with a degree in Television Production. I’ve been a Production Coordinator and Associate Producer for multi-camera series for Sony Pictures Television, TV Land and the Disney Channel.

I’m an active member of the Junior League of Los Angeles, a women’s volunteer organization, where my focus has been in Development (fundraising) for the league. I’m chairing my first fundraiser this fall. I also enjoy doing home improvements and hope to add some stamps to my passport!

I’m excited to be joining The Orchard team and look forward to meeting everyone!
