I'll never forget showing up to interview for the Business Support Intern position at KEXP's Dexter and Denny location. I instantly felt like I had found the sibling to the radio station I had become so immersed in as a student at the University of Puget Sound. Eventually, I found my way to the wonderful Cheryl Waters who I have faithfully DJ assisted every Wednesday for several years:). I have worn numerous hats here at the station from in-studio hospitality volunteer to occasionally helping Kyle with Positive Vibes. Currently, I work under the wings of Matt and Jackson as a board-op for in-studios and remote broadcasts like Iceland Airwaves & Upstream!
Life and music are inextricably linked. There's nothing like the feeling of neurons firing in your brain to the sound of your fav guitar part or the way your heart feels when someone is singing with some serious soul. Music is a marvelous form of creative expression, an emotional interconnecting force for humans and a powerful medium to convey social change. KEXP provides a platform to keep artists thriving and to thread people together in community. This is an invaluable service and I'm beyond excited to expand my role here at KEXP and participate in this mission as a DJ!
