Hello MN friends!
I am super happy to be back in my home of Minneapolis to kick off my favorite dance night, Transmission on September 26th. Massive thanks to DJ Jake Rudh for making this dream come true. I miss being a Transmission regular. I hope to see your dancing self there and let's catch up on old times and fantastic tunes.

Oh and for those of you getting to know me...a little about myself:

I escaped from the cornfields of Iowa and settled in the promised land of Prince (Minneapolis) where I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in Theatre and Psychology. In 2010, I walked to the top floor of the theatre building at the U of M and unearthed the college radio station, Radio K (KUOM). The Drums were loading in for an in-studio session and they needed someone to interview them, so I quickly volunteered and never looked back.

At Radio K, I hosted the morning show, local show, and also served as Music Director. I also helped out at venues including First Avenue (cue "Purple Rain"), booked shows, and haven written for various music publications. In 2011, I briefly ran away to the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland and delved into the music scene where I interviewed new Scottish bands for Radio K, wrote for The Pop Cop, and went to shows almost every night. During my final semester of university, I began hustling marketing and press for many beloved artists that I grew up listening to at Saddle Creek Records.

Then one day in August 2015, I visited Seattle and was magically offered a house to live in and a job at Sonic Boom Records. The universe seemed to be beckoning me to the West, so I packed up my car and moved a month later. I immediately started volunteering at KEXP: DJ assisting John in the Morning on Mondays and interning with the Business Support and Underwriting Department. Then on October 12th, 2016, I began my dream job hosting my very own show on KEXP every Wednesday! I also spin a 2000s Indie Rock night called Sonic Squeeze and DJ all around Seattle venues, bars, and everything in-between on top of my other music-related projects.
