MY (UN)HEALTHY OBsESsION

The only thing I know more about than marketing is music

Blogging

I ran a music blog on Tumblr from 2010-2012 and accumulated 1,500+ followers. I mostly shared playlists and promoted up-and-coming artists that flew below the radar.

Playlists

I’m constantly making new playlists for myself and friends. I have a song for every mood, story, memory, etc. Ask me about that time I shared a break-up playlist as my resignation letter.

Live Music

I started going to shows regularly at the age of 14 and my live music habit has led me to about 250+ different shows over the last decade. This has spread across 60+ venues, in 25 cities and 5 countries. Ask me about fans in Tokyo.
