"I am in my junior year at UVM and pursuing a degree in Mathematics with a minor in music. From a young age I've had a passion for music. My mom got me guitar lessons for the first time when I was about 8 or 9 years old and I fell in love with the art form that is music. Growing up in central NJ, there were always shows in and outside of the Philadelphia and New York City area that I could get to pretty easily, so I was able to get a good dose of live music. It was only this year that I learned about about Big Heavy World and grew an interest so I decided I'd join the crew as a volunteer. Thus far, it's been pretty cool to see the magnitude and types of work that go into running such an organization. I have grown an interest in the music industry over the past couple of years so it's been a nice perspective in seeing how a non-profit organization runs. At Big Heavy World I am mainly helping out with the technical/engineering side of things by putting together and recording PSAs and by adding music to the digital music catalog at the radio station. I look forward to continuing to work with Big Heavy World and to promoting Vermont made music!"
