‘Setting the stage for good things to happen’ is how Troy describes his work the last 2 decades.
The titles end up reading more formal: Director of Events and Artist Partnerships, Executive Producer, Artist Manager and Official E-mail Answerer.
At the heart of it all is the fun of collaborating with people to bring about the unexpected and impact peoples hearts for a greater mission. Most unexpected is that Troy is still thriving in a meaningful creative field after 20 years and loving it, having recently signed on with long-time ally International Justice Mission.
Troy, with wife & singer-songwriter extraordinaire Sara Groves, also endeavor to support ‘creative community for the common good’ back home in Minnesota. Art House North, a branch of Charlie Peacock and Andi Ashworth’s Art House in Nashville, opened in St. Paul, MN in 2012.
Troy has been married to Sara for 21 years and has 3 children (Kirby-16, Toby-13 and Ruby-9).
