Kieran Graulich, Music Editor

Kieran Graulich is your loveable goofball music editor. He’s a radical sophomore in the Playwrights Horizon Theater School for Drama with a double major in Philosophy with a minor in BEMT and Not Sleeping. He likes to tell people he’s from New York City although he’s really from Staten Island and says “bro” more than he’d like to admit. When not rehearsing or working for WSN, he can be found crying about rehearsing or working for WSN, or possibly arguing why Weezer is really is a good band and why you should give them a shot, bro.
