Our local scene killed it this year and I'm so totally in love with how much it's grown and all of the beautiful people I have had the opportunity to meet because of it.. also incredibly thankful that I got to travel so much this year, by myself and with some awesome pals, to go see all sorts of cool shows.

I know that things will only continue to grow here and I'm super stoked to be a part of it!

Keep Sioux Falls Rad.
