Wags DJ Profile

I'm a transplant from Wyoming/Montana who moved to Chicago about 5 years ago. I was checking out one of the ubiquitous summer festivals shortly after I moved here and I bumped into some Chirp tablers. It's all gone downhill ever since. I started DJing for Chirp in 2013 and I currently hold down the Friday night 10-midnight shift. I recently graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a degree in music business and I'm hoping to get into music licensing/supervision. When I'm not Chirping I enjoy compulsively listening to NPR, watching 80's movies, rooting for the Cubbies, and all things nerdy. Feel free to call in with a request or say hi during my set! 

You can listen to the two most recent shows from DJ Wags here.
