It may sound silly, but the Beastie Boys were probably the biggest pop culture influence in my life... not sure why I'm sharing that on my OKC profile; however, if you have love for the B Boys and can be the Mike D or MCA to my Ad-Rock on Karaoke versions of "Paul Revere", we'll probably get along.
Just relocated to Chi from Oakland, and it feels good to be back in the Midwest. For whatever reason, my goofy birthplace of Milwaukee, WI (bark twice!) will always be in my heart, but I grew up in Ann Arbor.
I believe in the uniting power of music and completed my masters on music-formatted public radio and the formation of community. I love live music and am making it a point to check out as many venues as possible.
