Amanda is a Brooklyn-based writer and photographer with big dreams and even bigger hair. Amanda fell in love with music when she had a spiritual experience at a Mikky Ekko concert and wrote a subsequent review about said spiritual show. She is fluent in French and spent 48 hours in Paris, where she learned that the Mona Lisa is much smaller than we have been led to believe. In her free time, Amanda enjoys playing her acoustic guitar Linda, eating vegetarian food and finding abandoned buildings to explore.
Amanda already has an extensive author page on Galore Magazine where you can find some of her band interviews and witticisms. She also contributes to Viva Magazine and has written for a bridal magazine based in the UK. She is thrilled to have joined the BTR family.
