Jen Verzosa is a Filipino-American, psychiatric-social-worker turned journalist, proud U.C. Berkeley alum (Go Bears!), and aspiring professional stand-up comedian. Many moons ago, she worked with HIV+ youth in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco as a counselor. But her infatuation with indie rock whisked her away from the social services and landed her bylines in San Francisco Bay Guardian, BayArea.com, East Bay Express, Hyphen Magazine, Relix Magazine – among others. When she’s not at Amoeba Records flipping through vinyl, Jen is at Philz Coffee (her home away from home) typing away on her MacBook and sipping on ginger snap iced coffee.
