I attended the University of Illinois in Champaign, IL. It was there that I developed a passion for live entertainment. In 2011, I was able to combine this passion with my Computer Science degree when I developed PlaylistHQ. It is a website that allows you to create playlists based on upcoming concerts. In the summer of 2014, I launched the PlaylistHQ blog. It originally focused only on concerts, but it soon expanded to cover theatre, comedy, interactive entertainment, and dance.
