I grew up most of my life in the Western suburbs and moved to Chicago when I began studying at DePaul. Everything I do revolves around music. As a journalism major, I hope to one day become a music editor/writer. Right now, I manage my own DIY Chicago music website and have written some music pieces for the Chicago Reader and The Chicago Vibe. I work at Reggie's Rock Club in the South Loop and am a part of DePaul's Music Business Organization and Students for Sensible Drug Policy here on campus. In my free time, I go to local punk, metal, and hardcore shows.
