Ashley Newsome

Journalist

Your typical, unorthodox twenty-one year old. Over dramatic even before her days of small time acting, Ashley can usually be found jamming to 90's boy bands and procrastinating the ever growing list of to-dos

My name is Dexter Adams though I go by DJ. I am from Dayton Ohio and I currently attend Ohio Wesleyan University. I play the trombone in my college's trombone and I enjoy taking martial arts at a local Tae Kwon Do studio. I enjoy writing in my free time, thus spurning my desire to pursue a degree for creative writing with a Spanish minor. I hope to go to grad school after my graduation and, eventually, become a novelist.

Micaela Windom

Journalist

Just your unaverage girl obsessed with roller coasters as much as bands. Current graduating chemistry major at Meredith College, so I’m living in a perpetual state of sleep deprivation. I spend a good portion of my paychecks on band merch, so it’s rare to catch me out of a band shirt. If I don’t talk about My Chemical Romance at least five times a day, something is wrong because I still love them to death. My main goal in life is to live with my dog, Phaser (affectionately named after TBS’s “Set Phasers to Stun”), as he is the light of my life. During my free time, I’m either playing Runescape or watching Netflix (usually re-watching The Office). My favorite bands include My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, Pierce the Veil, Bring Me the Horizon, Fall Out Boy, and Twenty One Pilots.

Nathan Porter

Journalist

While his interests diverged, exploring alternative sources of creative expression, namely: literature, film, and theatrical arts, music was never far from his frame of reference. Once high-school graduation came to fruition, Nathan set-out for Nashville, Tennessee to begin college at Middle Tennessee State University. Starting as a music-production major, Nathan was also enrolled at Nashville State Community College where he earned his technical certificate in music technology, helming a burgeoning interest in the recording industry. After a summer-internship just south of Nashville at a local-recording studio known as Darkhorse, Nathan decided a paradigm-shift was in order as he pursued a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism. Once the transition was secure, Nathan sought to fuse his ever-growing knowledge of the world in music and recording with that of his journalistic skill-set.
