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

In the midst of covid I was scrolling through my online orientation and saw people talking about a student radio station and I thought “That sounds cool.” The I saw someone talking about the radio station wearing a hoodie of a band I like and I thought “This sounds really cool.” And I kept finding it cooler and cooler until eventually it became my job. 


What has been your best on-air experience?

Every time someone calls or texts the request line, always nice to know that there’s someone listening to what you say and play on-air.


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

A hardcore fest called Sound & Fury in 2022. I couldn’t pick a better lineup if I tried, I saw so many all time favorite bands playing to a crowd that loved them. It felt like such a genuine moment in time, it was not corporate at all like some bigger festivals in music. It was so clearly put on by people who love hardcore, for people who love hardcore. There’s such purity in sharing that experience with 5,000 other people.


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

It has and will continue to give me lasting friendships and experiences that I would never find anywhere else.

Favorite College Memory?

Going abroad last summer for a Film Studies program in London. I doubtlessly made lifelong friendships and permanent memories.
