last year i graduated art school and moved to boston. i began craigslisting for an apartment, a job, and because i was all alone in this city eventually friends.

friends via the internet were difficult to come by. i ran into an ad (placed by a now friend) that said "would anyone like to trade mix tapes?" and that's how it began. like something out of four-eyed monsters we traded music. i made elaborate cd cases. i started doing it with more strangers. i met so many people this way, first through connections with music and then socially.
