I started reading CREEM magazine and Rolling Stone interviews in middle school, hoping I would find a top-secret tip on how I could sneak onto Neil Young’s Northern California ranch. Turns out, I got sucked into a literary world where writers dissect music and pop culture and place its importance (or its lack thereof) in our overarching society.

I’m 21. I live in LA. My musical taste ranges from 100 gecs to early Aerosmith only (Get Your Wings) to Elliott Smith. My writing has appeared in Variety, The Wild Honey Pie, Lucid Monday, the Trojan Arts Review, and on the wall of my third grade classroom.
