In Milwaukee, Wisconsin I was raised on the Motown sound on my dad’s side and classic 70s singer/songwriters on my mom’s side. Alternative/indie rock got me through college and I also gained an affinity for French pop and dance music from living in Europe in the early aughts. I love all music – country and rap included – and am especially fond of jangly guitars and fist-pumping anthems that make you run out to the dance floor. I’ve been a weekend DJ for Lightning 100 since the fall of 2016 and still pinch myself every time I go into the recording booth! Having been a fan of WRLT since moving to Nashville in 2005, this is a dream gig at a station staffed by some of the kindest, most thoughtful, badass get-er-done music fans I’ve ever met. I also founded and operate the first downtown kayak outfitter in Nashville, River Queen Voyages. It’s a perfect match for outdoor adventures with Team Lightning and together we partner to create unforgettable experiences paddling into the city to see the famous Nashville skyline. You can also find me around town at Lightning 100 live music events hosting or DJing – come say hi! I believe in the power of music to lift us up, connect with each other, and create the soundtrack to our lives.
