What would would you like to share with KDHX listeners and readers about yourself?
I was born and raised in Texas. With a background in theatre, I've always been a music lover. I've been singing for as long as I can remember, and I've been learning the drums since June 2023. I also like to roller skate and sew. I have a bearded dragon named Beans and a toad named Baroque.

Please describe the inspiration for your show.
As I was in the midst of reading a Janis Joplin biography and delving into her discography I took a trip to the National Blues Museum. I turned a corner to see a giant photo of Janis smiling outside of the Chelsea Hotel in 1969. I thought "Chelsea Hotel. That could be a cool name for a radio show." And here I am months later hosting Chelsea Hotel on KDHX. My show is inspired by the New York bohemian paradise that housed numerous well-known artists such as Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and Andy Warhol.

Why is KDHX important to you and to your community?
KDHX has provided me with this incredible and unique opportunity to share my current jams with a whole community of people that appreciate music as much as I do. It's an invaluable resource for music lovers to unite and discover new music together.
