Meet the Team

Preston Valles
General Manager

I’m a Games, Interactive Media and Mobile Development Major with a Certificate in User Experience Design. I’m finishing my fourth year here at Boise State and my Fourth year of involvement with University Pulse Radio. Being involved at Pulse has turned my hobbies of photography, music, and graphic design into real, pursuable career paths

My main goals as manager of Pulse are to ensure the longevity of the station and to better improve the User Experience of our Producers and Audience.

You can always catch me at concerts and local shows running about or holed up in my room playing video games.

Avery Gerhardt
Operations Manager

Hey, I’m Avery! I am a freshman at Boise State, majoring in communications with a minor in film and television arts. I’ve recently held my show, Space Station for a short while, but it has been all worth the time and effort. University Pulse has inspired me very much!

I love spending my time listening to or making music and seeking out
new adventures. Photography and painting have always been active hobbies throughout my life. I love learning new things, but art has always been appreciated! I am always creating something.

Julia DuBois
Music Director

Hello everyone! My name is Julia DuBois and I am this semester’s Music Director! I am in my fourth year here at Boise State, and I am working towards a major in Communication, minor in Writing for Change, a Technical Communication certificate, and a Human Rights certificate. I am also a Writing Center consultant here on campus, but joined University Pulse as another way to get involved with the BSU community.

One of my goals with this position is to build connections with others around me through shared passions such as music. To empower, understand, and appreciate others by exploring how their individual experiences with music, or other forms of media, have helped shape their sense of identity. I am truly excited for this school year, and I am thrilled to be working with such an amazing team!

Abbie Alling
Promotions Director


I’m in my third year here at Boise State as a Business major and plan to pursue a minor in visual arts.  I’ve had my show Indiegestion on University Pulse for over a year now, and it’s been the best thing that has ever happened to me. 

In addition to my show, in my free time I love reworking and sewing clothes, playing any instrument accessible, and traveling anywhere as much as possible!  I love catching every concert in town, and I’m so excited to be more involved in Boise’s music scene through University Pulse!
