As an FM certified DJ and audio enthusiast, I spent most of my college years inside of a radio station. In addition to having a weekly music show at WFNP the Edge, I learned a lot about on-air etiquette and regional politics every weeknight as the Local News Director, and honed my PR skills as the Public Affairs and Promotions Director. At Townsquare Media in Poughkeepsie, I worked as a Promotions Intern. In this role I worked live events, produced drops and sweeps, and earned my chops in Adobe Audition.
