Position: Reviews Writer (Alt/Indie)

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Bio: Just recently moved back home after living in San Francisco for 7 years. Developed a horrible case of internet ADD over my lifetime which is intensified by drinking way too much coffee during the day. Usually have music playing all day, am playing music, or writing about music. Getting used to living back in Los Angeles. You can probably find me stumbling around Silverlake / Echo Park area, either at a show or at a bar.

I’m on the internet constantly: Blog, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
