I’m Cody, a music photographer born in Philadelphia but currently based in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Dustin Danford

Journalist

Hello there, I’m Dustin. I’m an 18 year old from Emporia, Kansas. I spend all of my time either watching movies, listening to and writing music, and attending concerts. At the age of 9, my brother bought me my first guitar, which became a catalyst for the biggest passion I have in life. I’ve been learning many new instruments and studying composition and theory ever since. I decided I wanted to shake things up a bit and do something new within the world of music in the form of writing and journalism, thus why I became a writer for Amped.

D.J. Adams

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.

Maxwell Heilman

Journalist

Hey there! My name’s Max, and I hold up the more extreme end of music here at Amped Sound. I’m from Long Beach, California, and fell in love with music from an early age due to growing up in a home full of instruments and tunes. I’m just about done with my four years at Biola University in La Mirada, California, from where I will leave with a BA in Journalism. When I’m not loving my dog to death, I spend a little too much time on the internet finding new bands and obsessing over obscure music genres. From dungeon synth to power violence, I’m game for anything! Just give me a cup of black coffee and I’m all set!
