Abby's creative ideas are behind everything that goes on here at Carlson Entertainment. She helps us make all of our tough decisions and helps us keep everything running smoothly.

With out her Carlson Entertainment would not run as efficiently and we would not have nearly as pretty of an office.

Regularly he is out rocking Chippewa Valley nightlife scene by spinning turntables or hosting extreme bingo. If you happen to find him away from his mixer, most likely he'll be eating pizza and hanging out with his son & fiancé.
