What made you decide to join The IMPACT and become a DJ?
Listening to the station and my friends peer pressuring me to join.

What has been your best on-air experience?
I would say anytime my friends/family call in and try to make me say something stupid.

What is the best concert experience you have had? Why?
When I got to see Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails in 2016 at Pine Knob. It was an amazing show that will sadly never happen again.

How do you think working in radio will affect your future career and life?
I think it will help me with adapting to a new work environment and making new connections with people.

Favorite Dining Hall?
Case but SnyPhy is a close second place.

Campus Squirrels or Campus Ducks?
Ducks all the way, the squirrels here are too comfortable.

Plan a dinner in East Lansing with any person dead or alive. Who would it be? Where would you go?
I’d take Matt Berry to a late night Pinball Pete’s session and get some DP Dough and then we’d go to Fleetwood Diner for breakfast.


What is your comfort TV show?
Either Toast of London or I Think You Should Leave.

Favorite College Memory?
Walking to the abandoned coal depot near campus with some friends and being chased by wild dogs while a train was coming at us. It was a very scary experience.
