I'm from the Central Valley of California and spent most of my formative years escaping the area on weekends to see ska and punk shows in Southern California. After much exposure to the world beyond my hometown, I made the decision to move to Los Angeles as soon as I graduated high school to pursue a degree at UCLA.
I'm also a classically trained musician and self-described music junkie, which is why I am now pursuing a career in music journalism.
I'm hoping to meld the skills I picked up in the workforce with my natural ability and love for music - particularly along the lines of new media outlets. I am a diligent contributor to two LA based blogs, Minx Society and The L.A. Music Blog, and continue to explore new opportunities in journalism.
