    Do your best at everything that is under your control, and accept that the rest will happen how it will.

  • Hobbies:

    I’ve always made a habit of making playlists for friends and family, but I also love making themed ones for myself (a fake soundtrack for a TV show, something to suit a certain mood, etc). I moved to the Twin Cities from New York City, and have been slowly immersing myself in all of the glorious outdoor activities you guys get up to here! Lately I’ve been rollerblading around my neighborhood lake and feeling very 90s while I do it. I also love reading, usually historical fiction or sci-fi/fantasy.

  • Something No One Would Guess By Looking At Me:

  • Genre Preferences / Specialties:

    On my own I definitely gravitate to R&B and Pop – sometimes I wonder how I would’ve handled it if I’d been born in an era like Medieval times because I’m THAT dependent on a sick bass beat. I guess it’s for the best that I’m here now! That said, I’m well versed in a variety of genres and get such great pleasure out of playing what people love – in some ways I’d say my specialty is noticing the details in people’s favorite music and using those clues to find the next thing they’d like.

  • My Relationship with Music:

    I feel powered by it--like I’m a battery that constantly has to recharge through my favorite music. I have visceral memories of the first time I heard a lot of my favorite songs, almost like my brain knew they were going to be important and made sure to save every piece of the data. I just love it--often in ways that are hard to explain, and that sort of feels like the point. Music communicates things we can’t in any other way. It’s such a powerful feeling for me that I’m constantly looking for ways to share it with others.
