Hear It At:

What do you do when you're not at school?
Study! Write poetry, attend our awesome poetry slams, check out live music, host "Overnight Freeform" on KUNM [Saturdays from 2 to 6 a.m.] and suspend with Ascension Suspension.

What are you reading?
The Practice of the Wild by Gary Snyder and The Gum Thief by Douglas Coupland.

What was the best concert you ever attended?
The Allman Brothers Band at Red Rocks. It’s difficult to find more stunning natural beauty to complement the earthy and ethereal jams of The Allman Bros.

The description of your playlist is "Flirting with a girl at La Montañita Co-op on a Sunday afternoon in October." Did you ever ask her out?
Perhaps the opportunity will manifest in the near future.

The mix starts out jangly and upbeat but quickly gets kind of introspective and soulful. Why?
The course of the mix reflects the initial excitement of the connection and playful conversation. It progresses through my consideration of how available I could make myself while wading through the rigorous demands of medical education. It concludes with the reminder that to be able to provide quality care for others, one has to take time to focus on self-wellness.

Do you happen to be a musician of some sort?
I practice didgeridoo and can play a mean iPhone Ocarina!

What are you into locally?
The Albuquerque Poetry Slam Team, Ascension Suspension, UHF B-Boy Crew, Kobold, Bellemah, Mystic Vision, Sina Soul, Smoke Rings, Concepto Tambor, Aaron Trumm, Ecliptic Gruv, Diverje, Felonious Groove Foundation, The Rip Torn, Icky and the Yuks, Mantis Fist, Fast Heart Mart, Kaotic State, The Old Main, Trilobite, Black Maria, Black Tooth Grin, Grave of Nobody’s Darling, Dirty/Birdies, The Ya Ya Boom Project ...

Anything else you'd like to share about yourself?
Be mindful ... be well ... BE ...

Do you have a website?
Folks can say howdy if they like at
