I trained in as a DJ in March of 2009.
2.) What show(s) do you currently host on KVSC and what programs have you hosted in the past?

MGMT, Radiohead, Modest Mouse, The Shins, Animal Collective, Muse, Gorillaz, Foals, Passion Pit, Explosions In The Sky, Mogwai, Bikini, Neon Indian, Toro y Moi, Morning Teleportation, Grouplove... I could go on for days, but I will stop there.
4.) Why are you involved with independent community radio at 88.1 FM?
Why WOULDN'T I be involved with independent community radio at 88.1 FM? The ball is back in your court. No, honestly it's awesome. I get exposed to a lot of great music here and work with a lot of great people. Crazy, but great.
5.) What is in your personal CD player, iPod, or mp3 right now (BE HONEST)?
Skrillex, Bassnectar, Deadmau5, Feed Me, Mord Fustang,
6.) Please disclose the most embarrassing music moment or concert you’ve attended or album you’ve bought (perhaps even shameful)?
Probably getting sick and throwing up TWICE at the Deadmau5/Skrillex show in 2010. A stomach full of (way overpriced) beer and basically getting beat up in the front row are bad combination. It was an EPIC show though!
7.) What are your hobbies and interests?
Listening to music, mixing music, and producing music on the side. I also play soccer and knit kitten mittens. I am also into economics and good movies.
8.) When you are not at work or KVSC, where can you most likely be found?
In my secret dubstep lair, at a show down in Minneapolis, DJing downtown or at some party, or sleeping.
9.) If it were the end of the world and you could only take five things with you, what would they be (BE HONEST)?
I don't understand the question, if it's the end of the world aren't I dead anyways? Or am I leaving on a spaceship or what? Or being buried with them? That is a pretty vague question..
10.) What do you think is the future of radio?
Electronic music, especially Dirty House & Dubstep! I am waiting for KVSC to start hosting a dubstep show. I would host it in a heartbeat. I basically eat dubstep for all 3 meals of the day.
