Major: Computer Science
Position: Website Director
How did you find out about WEGL?
"There wasn’t much too it, I wrote my name down on a bunch of lists at camp war eagle and when they sent the email out about the interest meeting, I figured why not go. When they said I could play whatever I wanted and immediately get a show, I had to join."
What made you want to apply for your position?
"I kind of applied on a whim. I wanted to get more involved and get to know more people in the organization, and the website seemed like the place where I could do the most. When I turned in my application I did not expect to actually get it, but I did, and it’s become one of the best things I’ve done."
Favorite WEGL Memory:
"My favorite thing about WEGL is that I have a platform to share music I care about with people. I love getting texts or having people reach out to ask what is playing or just to say that they loved the song. I remember freshman year I was doing my show, and God only knows what I was playing, but Brit walked in and showed me a tweet that had just been sent. I don’t know who sent it but it simply said “who ever is playing music on WEGL right now just cured my postwork blues”. That’s probably my favorite memory."
Favorite Song Lyric:
“I’m Wario when I’m in Mario Kart” – Yung Lean
"This might be the most iconic line from the last decade (maybe the most iconic of this century). When I found Yung Lean there just wasn’t anything else like it. I could talk about how you don’t need serious lyrics to have a serious song or about how we need music from outsiders to progress sonically, but I just think the line is good. I think stuff like this is the reason music is the way it is today, and I love it."
If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life what would it be and why?
"This one is a hard one cause I want to put so many, but if I have to choose it would probably be Darklands by The Jesus and Mary Chain. I’ve loved this album for as long as I can remember, and I think its perfect in every way. It’s moody and noisy but in an upbeat and happy way. It has just the right amount of ‘lo-fi’ to where it surrounds you in a way only shoegaze can. Every single song puts a smile on my face, when I say Darklands is perfect I mean it."
