Data Journalist
Next Big Sound at Pandora Media

I'm a music data journalist and charts manager at Pandora, and chances are, yes I have heard of that one band from Portland. At Next Big Sound and Pandora, I curate our three weekly charts -- Pandora Predictions, Pandora Trendsetters, and Pandora Top Spins -- so I am constantly keeping up to date with up-and-coming artists who are about to make it big. I love using data from Next Big Sound to discover rising artists, interview them, and spread the word to music fans.
