I am proud to say that I earned my Masters in Journalism. My thesis project All You Need Is Love to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb was published and is for sale in stores. In the last 16 years, I have covered the best of the best, ranging from Sir Paul McCartney, Roger Waters and Robert Plant to U2, Jane’s Addiction and Beastie Boys. Needless to say, I love my job.
