Founder & Editor-in-Chief
Sam is a mediocre artist, musician, and the founder and editor in chief of UNXIGNED. He is a Juris Doctor who leads an excitingly boring life in the confines of his room juggling studies with passion and dreams. He is terrible at finding balance but gets by anyhow. He wants you to follow his artist pages and channels for when he decides to up his game. Pretty open for collabs and will mix your would-be hit song for cheap.
Ben is an advertising Madman who spends his days with words and music. When he’s not writing for his supper, he’s eating it at some of NYC’s most interesting restaurants.
Managing Editor (August 2020–January 2021)
Derek is a writer, record collector, gardener, and all-around music lover. He lives in Iowa with his plants and his dog, Toby.
Hans is an engineering student with a growing dismay for math. As ironic as that sounds, he’s always looking for a break from digesting numbers and symbols by indulging in things he likes instead: music, writing, and video games. This guy is also the type to hog the microphone on karaoke night, so be careful when you’re inviting him for some singing over drinks.
Agatha is a college student taking up Psychology and a blogger who loves her dog and mom. Music is her way to find inspiration, excitement, and creativity in writing and in life. She dreams of becoming a Licensed Mental Health Counselor someday. For now, she helps people by sharing good music that uplifts and makes them deeply feel their vibes.
Anjali Rose Kumar is a musician, videographer, and creative freak based in Brooklyn, NYC. Anjali is learning to cope with a self-imposed quarantine in NYC’s second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic by spending her hours recording music in her bedroom, watching her unemployment leave her bank account, and embarking on a newly revived love of writing. In fact, when Anjali was 10 years old she was convinced she would live her life as a writer, however, she would often confuse her teachers by making up her own vocabulary and therefore buried the interest for 15 years. Cheers to the new years ahead of us. You can find out more about Anjali here.
Annika is a typical introvert who speaks her mind best through writing. Growing up in a family of creatives, she is no stranger to music and pop culture. At the moment she’s traversing the coming-of-age phase, quietly figuring things out and being a normal student. You’ll often chance upon her lost in thought or just spacing out with earphones on.
Claire is a progressive rock fanatic with a penchant for literary analysis and tree-hugging. She spends her free time tromping about in Maryland’s many forests and playing classical guitar to her cats.
Lorenzo is a composer, musician, sound engineer, and music lover based in Italy. He also loves cats and collecting vinyls.
J.K. Balod has his quirks. He’s an aspiring writer who prefers to eat donuts when watching movies because he just can’t stand the sound popcorn makes. He likes to read books upside down and has mastered the ability of eating soup with a fork.
