How did you get involved with KSDB?
I worked for a previous program director of KSDB and he recommended both K-State and KSDB. In a large part, he is the reason I came to K-State and applied to work at KSDB as soon as I could.

What exactly does you job entail?
I do what James and Evan tell me to do.

Favorite part about your position? Or the station?
I enjoy being able to write and produce imaging and liners for the station. It really tests your creativity to make a 10 second sound clip that is both informative and entertaining. As for the station, I enjoy the idea of being able to get hands on experience in such a fun way.

What’s your biggest goal for the semester?
I am just hoping to learn as much as I can. I have a lot of plans and projects that i am hoping to start and/or complete by the end of the year.

Give us 3 albums or artists you’ve been vibing with lately.
My current top three albums are:
Mansionz by Mansionz
Lazy Fair by Bryce Vine
Their Greatest Hits (1971-1976) by Eagles

And, what is an interesting fact about you?
I once tried to map out the entire taxonomic hierarchy starting with the order of carnivora for fun. I actually got pretty far.
