What’s your role at The IMPACT?

Station Manager & Afterglow Host.

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

I’ve always loved exploring music and being around different kinds of people so this seemed like the right place to hang out. Also, both of my parents worked in radio, so it seemed like something I might also enjoy.

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

Probably my last one! It was my very last shift as the host of The Afterglow. I had friends in the studio, people called in to say goodbye, my parents listened in, and I got to play some of my favorite songs I’ve found during my time here. Despite being an emotional rollercoaster, it was the best send-off I could ask for.

What’s your zodiac sign?

Virgo sun, Aries moon.

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

I think working in radio has made me value creative freedom and the ability to express myself in a professional setting. Whatever direction my post-college career takes I hope to have as much fun as I have at Impact! Also, I listen to better music now than I did before.
