Hey there I’m Jet, an LA native, who grew up with a father passionate about music. He introduced me to artists like Pink Floyd, John Coltrane, Eric Clapton & of course Led Zeppelin. As a guitarist my dad longed for someone to jam with, so at 13 I decided drumming was my calling. I can remember how fun it was playing “Smoke on the Water” (Deep Purple), “Crazy Train” (Ozzy Osborne) & “Sweet Child of Mine” (Guns N Roses) with him and that excitement about music has stuck ever since. Throughout middle school and high school I played drums as a hobby, but seeing great live music, now that was awe-inspiring. I became a fan of all things musical, falling in love with acts like Hall & Oats, Atreyu, Iron & Wine, The Misfits, Iron Maiden, Phil Collins, Duke Ellington, The Donnas, Ray LaMontagne, Van Morrison and so many more! I even joined Opera Club in my sophomore year (love me some Luciano Pavarotti).
In junior college, after giving several majors the old “college try” I finally sunk my teeth into Journalism; more importantly, Broadcast Journalism. Luckily, when I transferred to CSUN my most influential professors understood my drive to make music the center of my stories. I was hooked on talking about music, learning about music and heck just being around it! My first step into radio was as a student entertainment writer and later student assist (producer) for 88.5 FM’s HD-3 station. After earning a Bachelors Degree in Broadcast Journalism in 2016, I got my chance to intern for 88.5 FM and that’s when everything fell into place. I was later hired as their LA Events & Promotions Coordinator in 2018, becoming 88.5 FM’s Marketing & Promotions Coordinator in 2019. And this is only the begging!
