My name is Alli DePuy. I came to Missoula in the late ’90s to attend the University of Montana, graduating in 2002 with my B.A. in Art and K-12 Education Certification.

Hello, my name is Deron Wade. I am the co-founder of Tuneport. Tuneport is a web app that gives independent musicians the tools and resources to be successful music entrepreneurs. Tuneport evolved from my success of hustling in Los Angeles selling my own CD’s and mixes on the streets. It is there that I learned the business of the music industry and the hustle it takes to make it a lifestyle. I developed a fan base, created customer email lists, sold outside the Grammy’s, and sold over 20,000 CD’s with a 70% conversion rate. I wanted to share and give the skills that I had developed to artists, so I took my model from the streets to the internet.
Mostly I help people figure out how to tell their stories. I do it for free with start-ups and non-profits I love. I would do for free at Paramount Pictures, but they don’t know that, so they pay me.

I’m a storyteller, creative director and brand reputation freak.I cut my teeth in the Outdoor Industry where I learned the finer art of building a brand and creating lifestyle based marketing on a non-existent budget. In layman’s terms this meant I was expected to bust my butt and produce results with no money. Thankfully, my DIY work ethic was the perfect match for this task and soon I was making strides in one of the world’s most competitive industries.
