Hi there. Looks like you found me - I'm Britta. 

Thanks for checking out cmd+f! 

For those wondering what the heck "cmd+f" means, it's the special command keys used on Apple computers used to find key words on a page. It's very handy when you want to cherry pick a specific word out of a lengthy article. 

I started cmd+f as a way to calmly showcase my enthusiasm for introducing new music to my friends. The compulsion to share music goes back as far as high school, where I'd meticulously curate personalized mixes on CD-R's as part of my friends' birthdays and Christmas gifts. The mixes were stitched together with songs burned from the hundreds of CDs stacked in my room from my Tower Records and Amoeba Music hauls, and peppered with iTunes' free song of the week, KEXP's song of the day, FUSE's Daily Download. Those mixes were truly a labor of love.

Over a decade later, and I can't stop sharing music and still make playlists for every occasion. With the creation of streaming services, it's easier than ever to share music. But it can also be overwhelming - and I'm here to make it easier for you to find your next favorite band.

** cmd+f is also a self-rediscovery project. Each weekly letter includes an image from my extensive archive of thousands of 35mm film photographs I've taken over the past 10+ years.
