Collecting Vinyl

I have been collecting vinyl since my freshman year of high school once my mom gifted me her collection of Beatles albums. Main staples of my collection include The Beatles and all their solo careers, David Bowie, and Simon and Garfunkel. My single most valued album is my original pressing of David Bowie's 1976 album Low.

I use Rate Your Music and Discogs to buy and catalog my albums online.

Cooking and Baking

Growing up, I was always surrounded by cooking through my mother's side of the family. By high school, I really became interested in baking cookies and brownies. Now, after almost 7 years of experience, I have become a really skillful baker and also have gotten into cooking savory food. My favorite cuisine to cook is Italian, specifically fresh pasta and chicken parmesan.

My go-to sources for recipes are America's Test Kitchen and King Arthur Baking.

Gaming

I have loved video games since I was a kid. My favorite game of all time is Dota 2, a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game. I actually played Dota 2 competitively in high school, winning several tournaments in academic leagues. Other games I enjoy playing include Civilization VI, Hades, and Risk of Rain 2. I also enjoy watching game livestreams through Twitch.

I play all of my games through the Steam platform as well as through Battle.net.

Radio Broadcasting

I got into radio broadcasting in my freshman year of college at BU. I started out as an intern on someone else's show, but quickly climbed the ladder and started hosting my own radio shows. I did this for about 4 semesters until I left for a semester for a study abroad program. I love sharing my passion and knowledge of music so much, and my radio show was a great outlet for this.

My last couple sets of playlists can be found on Spinitron.
