(Retired) Writer (New York, NY, USA)
- Daniella is a budding New Yorker and lifelong music history buff with a love for all things dark and heavy—especially when it comes to her wine. She goes to far too many concerts for her own good, and feels most at home when death metal, indie rock, and more recently hip-hop music are blasting around her at near-deafening volumes.
