Journalist

My name is Dexter, though I go by D.J. I’m from Dayton, Ohio and, as an aspiring novelist, I love writing. I have a passion for music, hence what drew me to Amped Sound, and I enjoy researching the lesser known sciences and myths revolving around music. I recently graduated with a BA in Creative Writing from Ohio Wesleyan University and I hope to further my writing ability alongside my fellow journalists. When I am not researching topics for my articles, I write works of fiction in hopes to one day become a published author. I enjoy the rock and metal genres, my favorite bands being Skillet, From Ashes to New, and Bring Me the Horizon.
