My name is Micaela Dominique Seraphina Alaniz. I am 29 years old and have lived in Chicago my entire life.

I graduated from Loyola University in 2007 with a BA in Communications, concentration in Marketing. I earned an MA in New Media Studies from DePaul University in 2011.

By night, I am Ms. X – Chicago for Red Bull Music Academy and by day, I’m a part of the Web Development / Communications team at Columbia College Chicago.

I live in the Noble Square neighborhood of Chicago, IL and grew up alternately in Pilsen, Lakeview, and Roscoe Village.

I can be reached at mica.alaniz@gmail.com and at the Google Voice number (773) WOW-MICA (969-6422)

I have one tattoo. Four Six-Pointed Stars. Five Parallel Lines.  A combination of the two most important things to me.

Chicago.  Music.
