Hello you beautiful Zed heads! My name is Ez (he/him) I'll be your new Community Engagement Coordinator! I KNOW I KNOW I'm excited too! ๐Ÿ˜

You may recognise me from my time on Zed Games (Thursdays 6pm) or maybe you know me from Tranzmission (Tuesdays 9am). I've been volunteering at Zed for 8 years in a variety of different roles, and I hope to bring lots of enthusiasm and energy when connecting YOU with all the incredible stuff we do here at the greatest radio station IN THE WORLD ๐Ÿคฉ 4ZZZ!

A bit about me in a nutshell I'm a latinx transqueer ๐Ÿณ๏ธ‍โšง๏ธ punk rock loving ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ gaming nerd ๐ŸŽฎ my passion for Zed comes from my belief in a world were we can all create and exist as ourselves. I know 4ZZZ to be a place filled to the BRIM with creative expression, grassroots activism, independent journalism, and WHOLE LOT of positive vibrations that broadcast across the airways. Every. Single. Day.

I love being in a place that is run by real people talking about their real experiences living in Meanjin and beyond. I'm so keen for y'all to see the cool stuff we have planned for 2023! It's going to be a freaking awesome year of music, events, arts, and warm inner glow ๐Ÿฅฐ

So let's get to it โœŠ๐Ÿผ

P.S. I'd like to thank Matt for all his hard work and dedication to the Zed community and the broader community of Meanjin. You are a literal ball of sunshine and happiness I hope to shine as brightly as you โ˜€๏ธ I also promise to think of you every time I consume yummy food ๐Ÿ˜‹
