Born and raised in the rich music scene of Los Angeles, California, Vanessa is a third-year at the University of Southern California majoring in Economics and minoring in the Music Industry and Business Law. She hopes to work in the music industry one day. Currently, she is a member of USC's Concerts Committee, which puts on small- to large-scale concerts and musical events for its students. When she is not writing reviews or studying for her degree, Vanessa can be found searching for perfect albums and songs that she can listen to over and over without ever getting sick of them. So far, she has found only one album and a handful of songs, but she hopes that broadening her music horizons will help her to fulfill her ongoing pursuit!
