Sam Is Dead began in 2012 as a blog where I shared the music I was listening to with my friends. More people started to monitor the blog so I decided to start a legitimate website for it.

My main interests in music are Hip Hop, Alternative Rock, and Punk Rock but I am in to almost everything. I’m a Chicago native so the music scene in Chicago is important to me.

I am in my senior year at The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and will be graduating in the Spring of 2015. I study Criminology, Law & Justice. I hope to go to grad school soon to work in criminal research involving gang violence.

At UIC I am also the Blog Director for UIC Radio. In addition to this website I run and manage UIC Radio’s website.
