Hope Alcocer joined the 6/8 Team last month as our Marketing and Promotions Coordinator. She’s a digital marketing expert, published author and Midwest export who bought a one-way ticket to New York City three years ago to pursue her dreams as an author and music publicist. Her hobbies include fitness, writing, and attending live shows. You can find her at 6/8 downing down a quad-shot latte or diving into her gluten-free prepped meals of boring chicken and broccoli.

You never know what temporal days may bring
So laugh, love, live free and sing
When life is in discord
Praise ye the lord
