What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?

Saw Pearl Jam in Boston when Theo Epstein (Red Sox GM) came up and played. I hate the Red Sox but that’s was wild.


If you could only play one Edge Artist for an entire day, who would it be?



Who is your favorite band/musician that is not played on The Edge?

David Bowie. Or Velvet Underground.


Who is the nicest musician/band you’ve ever met?

Our Lady Peace are among the best human beings I’ve ever known. From their manager all the way down, I’m never more proud to call a band friends than I am with OLP. By the way, the Metallica guys are in that conversation too. I always make a point to tell people that because maybe you wouldn’t think so but they are fun and kind but most of all very sincere.


What’s the first concert you ever went to?
My friend’s dad took us to see Bob Dylan when we were young at ArtPark. Life changing experience. 
What is the first cassette, vinyl, CD you ever bought?

Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour


What is the one album you could listen to every day and not get sick of?

The Clash self-titled


Who is the most underrated musician/band?

The Ramones (I call them the best American band ever. No one else does. They are wrong.)


What is your favorite lyric from any song?



What movie do you wish you could make into a musical?

Honestly, Goodfellas the Musical would be amazing. Especially if you included puppets.


What’s your favorite memory while working with The Edge?

Tim Switala


What are you most looking forward to in the next ten years?

More Hidden Happy Hours, Pop-Up/Unpluggeds, CRNVLs and HRVSTs.

Taking social media too seriously.


What’s the creepiest thing you could say to a stranger while passing them on the street?

“Take me with you.”


What board game do you hate the most?

Monopoly is the actual worst.


Favorite day of the week?

I’m a big Thursday fan. Good band too.


What is something that not everyone knows about you?

I can do the alphabet forward and backward. This skill has gotten me out of trouble once or twice.

“Getcha own damn Wi-Fi”


What product would you stockpile if you found out they weren’t going to sell it anymore?

Sour Patch Watermelon


If your food is bad at a restaurant do you send it back or keep eating it?

I take it to the bathroom and throw it out and pretend I loved it. Or if it’s REALLY bad, I’ll apologize for being a distraction.


Describe your life using one word.



Have you ever cried at a concert?

No but I’m willing.


If you had the world’s attention for 30 seconds, what would you say?

I’d yell “nipples” over and over for half a minute.

American Idol

What do you do when you turn off the mic in the studio?

Stare into Shredd and Ragan’s office until someone notices I’m just staring at all of them.


If you could give any historical figure a wedgie who would it be?

FDR because that would be such a dick move.


What was the best thing before sliced bread?

Sliced bread terrifies me. I’m not kidding about this. I choose to avoid this question.


Would you rather be able to copy and paste in real life or undo in real life?

Anyone who doesn’t say undo is the lyingest liar ever.


If you could have a superpower what would it be?
Telepathy. It’s pretty encompassing.
