Hello!
I am a senior from Los Angeles and I study International Political Economy and Global Development. I have been a KUPS hip-hop DJ since my freshmen year and look forward to doing it one more time. My music taste is rooted in hip-hop but I have recently become enamored with disco and through my friends I have grown a strong appreciation for dance music. My other interests include watching professional wrestling, eating teriyaki chicken, hiding in my room, discussing the sociopolitical significance of the music I use to DJ, and “memes”.

David | Assistant Production Director
[email protected]

I am currently in my second year here at UPS after coming here from Washington, DC. My parents and one older sister (a singer) fostered a large interest in music in me. I grew up listening to my parents favorite garage and punk rock records, many from my hometown.
Through high school I was heavily involved with the theater program being the Sound/FX designer. A friend of mine got me into dance music and I started DJing somewhere in the last couple years of high school When I visited UPS and listened to KUPS I knew
I wanted a show on the station myself. After having one last year, I wanted to become more involved and here I am now. In my free time I enjoy eating, occasionally laughing.

Hey! I am a Washington native and senior this year, double majoring in Business Administration with an International Emphasis and Music with a main instrument of piano. I have been DJing at KUPS since I was a sophomore and am very excited to contribute to keeping the station alive for all the DJs to come! Besides working and doing school, I also like eating spicy asian food and looking at spiders. An embarrassing fact about me is that I won drama queen in my high school yearbook! XD
