I could put a lot of things here. Writer. Critic. Manic consumer of media. But I’ll just say this:

The two musical artists I geek the hardest to are Death Grips and Carly Rae Jepsen,
and – tbh – that’s all you need to know about me.

For those interested in a professional context, the below is my resume. You can also check out my linkedin, linked in (natch) at the top right of this page.
