Photo by Inger Klekacz About: I was born in Salem, OR. I lived in Los Angeles for 10 years but came back to Oregon in mid-2009. After living in a major metro, my wife and I wanted to live in a bigger city than my home town, and I wanted to immerse myself in the vibrant Portland music scene. I sought out opbmusic and started DJing in March 2010. I have always loved radio. I volunteered for KNRK during high school, hosted a music show for my college radio station (KSCR, Los Angeles), worked for a few commercial radio stations in Los Angeles (KBIG/KOST) and volunteered at a nonprofit station in Santa Monica (KCRW). The behind-the-scenes production always fascinated me, and once I started being able to speak into microphones and choose music to play to the masses I was hooked. I create playlists constantly, so being a DJ at opbmusic comes naturally and is extremely enjoyable and satisfying. Having a voice on opbmusic continues to give me a thrill and helps me discover great new music.
