What is your major, and what do you like most about it?
I’m a bio major, and I’ve always been really into science since I was a kid. You’re always learning new things, and the spectrum of technology is something that’s always changing, so it’s really interesting to learn. I really loved anatomy as a kid and wanted to know more. I always wanted to be a doctor, and then I got more into the molecular field as I got older.
What made you want to do Titan Radio? How did you hear about Titan Radio?
I heard about Titan Radio at Discoverfest during my first year, and I thought it was something out of my comfort zone and that I should try it since I really like music, and I wanted to be a part of a campus club. I needed to shake things up a little bit.
Can you describe your experience DJing on Titan Radio so far?
It’s really fun. I try to be more social as I’m DJing because I know that people are listening. It’s something different that I’ve been getting used to and is helping me express myself in a way that I didn’t really do before.
How would you describe your show to someone who’s never heard it?
It’s a play on time travel and jumping around a lot in terms of decades and genres. I liked time travel as a kid, and I thought that was a good way to put it into a show.
What is one of your favorite songs of all time?
Stone in Love by Journey, it’s very nostalgic to me and my middle school years, and it’s a bop.
What is one of your favorite artists and why?
The 1975. They can get any of my moods. If I’m feeling down or happy or romantic, it’s that one band that I can listen to any time.
How did you come up with your show concept?
I got “Back in Time” from the title track from Back to the Future by Huey Lewis and the News. I wanted to do a show that played around with the decades and genres, but I didn’t know a name, and I love Back to the Future, so I had to put something that reminds me of it.
Where did your interest in the type of music you play come from?
It came from my Pandora radio as a kid. I would put in Christina Perry, and I’d suddenly find an artist I’d never heard of. And I started listening to them and just went along from there.
One interesting thing about your show?
I tend to jump around a lot [with decades or genres], so I’m always switching it up every week.
One interesting thing about you?
I go to Comic-Con every year. I’ve been going since I was like 10, and I’m a major nerd, so I’m there every year in July in San Diego.
