Creativity keeps me sane.
As a child, I devoted hours to writing my own original poems and short stories; in my adolescence, my best friend and I used to write poetry together, line by line. I’ve had blogs – too many blogs, but I stopped writing in the Summer of ’12 as I went through a difficult personal transition.
This blog began as a form of catharsis; I just wanted to get my daily dose of 500 words in. It’s within those words that I discover labyrinths of my personality that I either forgot or simply never knew. Every time I write, I feel closer to whoever I am at my core – and the it’s a beautiful awakening. What’s unexpected, however, is that I’ve been led towards a completely different rabbit hole and a drastically different life path.
I’ve been blessed with the opportunities to both work with and pen for various sites and I couldn’t be more over the moon. Thank you to everyone who saw something in me and felt something in my words; I feel privileged that I get to share them =)Music Editorials + Reviews People often say the best lessons in life were taught to you in Kindergarten and I 110% agree. So, when I’m compiling and composing my reviews, I follow one simple rule that I learned back when I was a wee little one and it’s transitioned into what I like to call ‘Polite PR’: I only have nice things to say; so if you haven’t heard it here, don’t bother pressing play. 2014 5.19.14: Get Your Hands on Above & Beyond’s “Sticky Fingers” EP Today (The DJ List) 5.17.14: Lucent Dossier Kicks Off National Tour with Lightning in a Bottle Performance (The DJ List) 5.16.14: Kraak & Smaak Expands Tour Across North America In Support of Latest LP ‘Chrome Waves’ (The DJ List) 5.14.14: Nero Aims to ‘Satisfy’ With Latest Single (The DJ List) 5.10.14: Lightning in a Bottle’s Grand Artique Stage and The Herbert Bail Orchestra’s May Tour (The DJ List) 5.10.14: Psychemagik Kicks Off Discognosis USA Spring Tour (The DJ List) 5.8.14: Prepare Your Ears for Lightning in a Bottle as The Do LaB Goes Back “In The LaB” With Sets From LIB’13 (The DJ List) 5.5.14: Forever Never Land Offers a Unique 21+ Party Experience in Central California (The DJ List) 5.5.14: Phutureprimitive Headlining The Grateful Generation’s Next Installment of A-Bun-Dance at Lure (The DJ List) 5.2.14: Avalon Hollywood Celebrates A Decade of Excellence with a Brand New Set-Up and 4 Night Stand May 7th through 10th (The DJ List) 4.25.14: The Glitch Mob Continues to ‘Rock the West Coast’ (The DJ List) 4.22.14: HARD Summer 2014 Goes Big With Lineup Announcement (The DJ List) 4.19.14: The Grateful Generation Returns to Lure with A-Bun-Dance and Fresh Desert Vibes (The DJ List) 4.18.14: Dillon Francis Gets ‘Jealous’ With Chromeo (The DJ List) 4.16.14: Seven Lions Unveils Teaser for the ‘Worlds Apart’ EP, Releasing 4/29 (The DJ List) 4.16.14: San Francisco’s Silent Frisco Headed to Lightning in a Bottle (The DJ List) 4.15.14: Dada Life Heads to Reddit with Champagne and Bananas (The DJ List) 4.9.14: The Official Lightning in a Bottle Pre-Parties Are Cruising To A City Near You (The DJ List) 4.7.14: Mad Decent Block Party Line-Up Revealed (The DJ List) 4.7.14: BT Develops ‘Muse’ Application With Leap Motion (The DJ List) 4.2.14: Run DMT transforms Miguel’s ‘Simplethings’ Into a Festival Smash (The DJ List) 4.1.14: Alex Metric and Oliver Team Up for ‘Hope’ (The DJ List) 3.28.14: [Breaking] Deadmau5 added to Ultra’s Saturday Lineup (The DJ List) 3.28.14: Insomniac Events to Receive $400K in Legal Fees from the LA Coliseum Commission (The DJ List) 3.27.14: Autograf Puts His Signature Twist on Stevie Wonder’s ‘Superstition’ (The DJ List) 3.27.14: Ilan Bluestone’s ‘Big Ben’ EP Out Now on Anjunabeats (The DJ List) 3.20.14: Flex Your Mind and Body at Lightning in a Bottle With Their Roster of Yogis (The DJ List) 3.20.14: The Grateful Generation Presents:An ABunDance of Magic at LURE Hollywood on 3/29 (The DJ List) 3.17.14: Shpongle’s ‘Museum of Consciousness Tour’ Hits Los Angeles (The DJ List) 3.12.14: Minnesota Joins KOAN Sound For Their North American Tour (The DJ List) 3.10.14: This May Armin Only Makes an ‘Intense’ Return to the Los Angeles Forum (The DJ List) 3.6.14: Score A Pair of Tickets to Papadosio’s 3/14 Show at the Echoplex (The DJ List) 3.5.14: Kick It Kung Fu Style With Laidback Luke During Miami Music Week (The DJ List) 3.4.14: Dirty South Makes His Directorial Debut and Is Looking for Extras in LA!
