My name is Kinsey Blake Haynes and I am 24 years old.
I graduated in 2016 (in three years) from the University of Alabama with a B.A. in Journalism and a minor in American Studies. In 2018, I started at Mississippi State University to pursue my M.A. in Teaching – Community College Education with an emphasis on History. I will finish in Spring 2020 and I am PUMPED!
I have been writing since I was 11 and from then on I have been on my quest to becoming the world’s best music journalist.
I have covered national festivals from Warped Tour, Voodoo Fest, Rock On The Range, CMA Music Festival, and New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival among others. I have also interviewed over 200 bands for various outlets including Linkin Park, Halestorm, Will Hoge, Henry Rollins, and AFI. I have had the opportunity to photograph Pearl Jam, Fall Out Boy, Ministry, Red Sun Rising, Phish, and A Day To Remember and so many more.
My experience ranges in all areas from Writing, Editing, Radio Broadcasting, Photography, Magazines, Print Newspapers, Teaching, Project Management, SEO, Social Media, and Adobe Creative Suite.
