The short version? I am a queer, vegan Filipina mom who loves our Sacramento music scene, martial arts, my daughter and giving big hugs! Besides having a kid, my bucket list completions include performing onstage as a singer for the cover band Repeat Offender, the drummer for Bitchkraft, and guitarist for The White Suits. Also – swimming with sharks (if you count standing knee high in the ocean and having a baby black tip shark swimming in between your legs). What can I say, I shoot for the stars!
I have lived in Northern California my entire life. I grew up in Fairfield, spent some time in Vacaville before making the move to Sacramento in 1999 - and I never left! I discovered our amazing music scene in 2007 and found myself attending a handful of local music shows every month. In the fall of 2011 my career in radio began at V103 Rock, an underground internet rock station. By January 2012 I attended my first NAMM Show in Anaheim, California and felt like a kid in a candy store!
I hosted Afternoon Indie on V103 Rock for 2 ½ years before moving on to host audio and video interviews at concerts and festivals like Concerts in the Park and the Aftershock Festival. My love and support for our Sac music scene extended to booking entire line ups at various local venues like the Boardwalk, Club Retro, the former Marilyn’s on K, Faces Night Club along with speaking on music panels and judging battle of the bands contests.
I am a bit of an overachiever who will try anything once. My career in entertainment spans from radio and television, to movies. Last year I created my 2nd podcast The Bad Filipino. I truly enjoy working with young people by volunteering for non-profit organizations like the Stairway To Stardom program, and Girls Rock Sacramento Music Camp (teaching self-defense). Over the past 10 years I have interviewed some of the largest, influential, pioneers in the music industry which led me to my new career with Audacy! Working for 98 Rock is a dream come true for me, and am so excited for things to come!
