A self-proclaimed "audiomoth", my relationship with music began at a young age. I picked up the guitar at fifteen, and with a combined love of literature and stories, took off on a distinct creative path. I played in a few bands in college, hosted a weekly radio show, and organized an annual free music festival over four years. For my senior thesis, I wrote a poetry collection where music serves as a witness in personal and human history. I have written album reviews for The Owl Mag, a San Francisco-based music website. I write short stories and poetry in my spare time. I take long walks. I take naps. I eat shoots and leaves. Music is just one method of storytelling, and there's a story to every song. You just have to look for it.
