“In college though, I went to RiotFest in Chicago with a photo pass to the festival. I got drunk and went to the photo pit, in front of the crowd, to take photos of Wu Tang Clan. I was so hyped I stopped taking photos and just starting yelling to them that I loved them and they yelled back and brought me on stage after to hang. They were too cool. I’ll never forget that.”

“One of my favorite things about this job is talking to people on the phone and explaining the stories of the artists/albums to music directors and programmers, hearing how the MDs can relate to or be interested by said artists, and just generally shooting the cuss with them. Sharing and talking about music with folks is just the best.”

“Glenn Gould was, in my opinion, one of the great jazz musicians, just as Ellington was the 20th century Mozart. I try to highlight neglected groups like women jazz instrumentalists, for example, Jane Ira Bloom, Nicole Mitchell, Jessica Jones, Catherine Sikora, Terri Lynne Carrington, Helen Sung, Brandee Younger, Carla Bley, and Alison Au, and formal/neo-classical. Black composers like Derek Bermel and Anthony Davis.”
