About Me

23 year old artist manager with a passion for live music. Majored in Media Studies at UCR, took a quarter off to go to Europe. I was a radio DJ and Student Manager for KUCR 88.3, where I frequently spun indie, experimental, post-punk, world, rare groove, psych, krautrock, IDM, footwork, jazz, house, garage, boogie, disco, funk, ambient, and anything else that I really dig. I've DJ'd opening sets for acts such as Badbadnotgood, Neon Indian, Vince Staples, and others. My goal is to break into the music industry and help promote some of the most exciting new and boundary-pushing music that I find. I also have experience in photojournalism, and covered several major political rallies during the past American 2016 election.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good conversation regarding music, art, art history, politics, anything humanities related.

Would love to share insight and knowledge regarding photography/journalism/the music industry, and meet people who can teach me more about those fields.

I'd also love to link up with fellow DJs!

I used to be a boy scout so I can teach knots and how to cook certain dishes.
