Beatnik DJ Profile

I am a self-confessed media nerd––writer by day, and music/movie/book devourer by night. Always more inclined toward the analogue side of things, I've been collecting vinyl since the ripe ol' age of 10. I'm very interested in public policy, and am driven to use my voice for empowerment, engagement, and to share in the media which moves me. There is a profoundly human element to radio, which allows it to operate in its own space in our media landscape. I hope to wield my passions for the arts and public engagement as part of something grand.

You can find Nikki's two most shows here.
