Beanie has been a life long fan of jazz, growing up listening to her father play guitar, from the era of Freddie Greene and the Count Basie Big Band. She studied piano and guitar into her teens, until her focus on being a visual artist came to the forefront. She studied art in Hartford, CT, Boston, MA and Los Angeles, CA. She has exhibited her work around the U.S., Italy, Japan, S. Korea, and Thailand.
Beanie came to KSFR in 2007, when there was a need for an afternoon jazz host. She had never done any broadcasting, but was happy to learn and share the music that she loves with a jazz audience. She is so thrilled to be a part of the knowledgeable group of jazz dj’s and musicians at KSFR.
