Peter Holslin
Peter Holslin is a freelance journalist, music writer, and musician originally from San Diego, Calif. He was born in 1986. He is super chill, can make a fine cappuccino, enjoys a good hike, often makes up words, and prefers goat meat to every other kind of meat.

Though he spends much of his time tearing his hair out and punching himself in the face trying to perfect his writerly craft, he also occasionally makes weird beats and songs. Hit him up on Twitter - https://twitter.com/peterholslin.
