cheeky music-obsessed

Amanda’s never had a problem music couldn’t fix. Most hours, you will find her with headphones permanently attached to her ears. She has lived in Chicago for most of her life, with the exception of a 4-year stint in the great state of – you guessed it – Iowa. After graduating from Drake University with degrees in creative writing and psychology, she moved back to the city because she believed Chicago missed her dearly (she still maintains this is true).

When she’s not reviewing shows and CDs for Cheeky, she is an avid dancer and musician (when she thinks no one is looking), a part-time psuedo-therapist, and a full-time expert texter. She is currently working on a memoir because her life is just that interesting.
