I grew up in suburban Michigan until moving into a rural setting near Ann Arbor, Michigan. Throughout high school I grew a very large interest in film and visual art, deciding I'd like to attempt a career in that field, and as an extension enjoyed performing on stage in improvisational comedy shows and stand up performances. When I came to school I began to write more, and have branched out into multiple different media forms. Radio seemed like a very fun and logical addition to that goal.
-The vlogger ZeFrank -Hip Hop artists like Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino etc. (rap music in general) -a multitude of authors ranging from Elmore Leonard to Tina Fey (I'll read anything) -Standup comedians (again, too many to list)
