Favorite Concert Experience

This is a really tough one. I’ve seen Dead and Company six times and those have all been incredible experiences, however, I think my favorite concert would have to be Mac DeMarco opening for Tame Impala at Red Rocks in 2016. At the time I wasn’t very familiar with either of the artists. My sister got me a ticket and convinced me to go and I’m so so grateful that she did. 

Hobbies/Interests/Fun Facts/Campus Involvement

Currently I work two jobs (not including SCOPE)- I work concessions at the Englert Theatre downtown and at the different parking ramps around campus for the university. Both are great jobs and whenever I’m not working there’s a good chance that you’ll find me playing pool at a bar downtown or catching a show at Gabe’s! I lived in Shanghai, China for a little over two years when I was in middle school and I believe that it inspired me to embrace change whenever the opportunity presents itself, I suggest you do the same!
