What made you decide to join The IMPACT and become a DJ?

After getting a job at The Impact, I wanted to get as involved as I could. And Paige told me that I would become famous if I was a DJ. So far, still not famous, but there is more time. 


What has been your best on-air experience?

My first DJ shift! I bullied my friends into listening to me and making song requests. I also gave a shoutout to my mom. It’s just a lot of fun to be in your own world when on air. 


What is the best concert experience you have had? Why? 

Wicca Phase Springs Eternal & Guardin. Really loved the artists for a long time and it was super cool to see them live. I got to meet Guardin and he was super nice. Definitely a memorable experience. 


How do you think working in radio will affect your future career and life? 

Not sure I’ll end up in radio, but my time at The Impact has been super beneficial for me. I’ve made lifelong friends here and get to work on a lot of cool projects with E-board, trying to make The Impact the best place to work at MSU!


Favorite Dining Hall? 



Campus Squirrels or Campus Ducks?

100000% Squirrels


Plan a dinner in East Lansing with any person dead or alive. Who would it be? Where would you go?

I’d take Princess Diana to the green McDonalds. She would’ve loved our culture. R.I.P.


What is your comfort TV show?

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia 


Favorite College Memory?

Impact 89FM tailgates were always so much fun. I don’t remember them too clearly for reasons that I probably can’t say at work. Always great to see everyone outside of the station!
