Don’t forget the songs that made you cry
and the songs that saved your life.
Yes you’re older now. And you’re a clever swine.
But they were the only ones that ever stood by you.
– “Rubber Ring”, The Smiths
In May 2008, I graduated from Frostburg State University in Frostburg, MD with a Bachelor’s in Mass Communications and a minor in Journalism. I was the music editor at my university’s school newspaper – The Bottom Line – for two years. The experience I had interviewing and featuring some of my favorite bands each week will forever be one of the most passionate experiences of my life. As I continue through my quarter-life crisis, I hope to chose a direction career-wise without letting my music journalism passion fade away. Here you can find a collection of my CD reviews, band spotlights, and interviews. I’ve contributed to Racket Mag, punknews.org, AMP magazine, and various blog sites.
