The best concert I’ve ever been to was Fear Fest. It was my first electronic music festival and really opened my eyes to the culture and art behind the EDM scene.

The first CD I ever bought was Rush - Moving Pictures. I grew up listening to classic rock and really loved that album!

I think the theme song to my life would be 4am by Kaskade


What is your favorite thing to do on your days off?

On my days off I enjoy relaxing, learning new things on the internet, and honestly just nerding out with some good video games!


What is your favorite thing about your job/career?

My favorite thing about my job is that every day brings a different challenge and that I’m able to work in a field that I love with people who share a common interest and passion.


If you could trade lives with one person for a day, who would it be?

I would trade with Ryan Raddon aka Kaskade. It would be amazing to experience what it would be like to be constantly touring, creating music and playing music to such large crowds. 

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

I think If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be in New York City. I really love how diverse and lively the city is and think it would be a blast to be able to experience that level of energy on a daily basis.
