Graduating with: BSA in Biology and Social Inequality
How did you first hear about or get involved with KVRX?
During the first month of freshman year, I knew there HAD to be a music scene at UT and I was determined to find it. I was walking down the street from a chemistry class and I started talking with a friend who also shared this passion for music. On that walk, we vowed to sign up for DJ training, and the next week we showed up to the station. Music means a lot to me and KVRX was the spot to share this love.
What shows have you had on KVRX?
Wowistair — Fall 2017, Spring 2018 — Freeform
The Nowistair — Fall 2018 - Fall 2019 — Freeform
Mother Momentum — Spring 2020 - Spring 2021 — Specialty
The Grocery Store — Spring 2021 — Talk Show
What is your favorite KVRX memory?
For my first two years, I used to have extremely late-night shows where all my non-night owl friends would hang out with me. My favorite moments were when other random DJs would walk into the booth and chill with us. The booth invites dance parties, fun conversations, and music talk, and I am so glad I had the opportunity to be in that space.
From the Austinites calling in to talk about the music playing to the DJ mentees that I trained, I will miss KVRX.
Tell us about your final playlist!
This semester I wanted to go all out on KVRX to get my creative juices flowing. This spawned Mother Momentum, a show that has challenged me to create playlists that are eclectic and thoughtful. It’s been challenging to say the least, and with support from my co-DJ Felix Kimbrell, we have managed to wrangle one last show together. For the first hour, we will play our last Mother Momentum show: The KVRX Cab edition. This features so many special people that we love talking about their favorite places in Austin. For the last hour, I will tell stories about songs that I have played throughout my time at KVRX. We hope you enjoy!
