Meet the Team

Avery Gerhardt

General Manager

Hey, I’m Avery! I am a sophomore 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.

Brady Thompson

Music Director

Hi, I’m Brady, a senior Computer Science student here at BSU! I’ve been involved with Pulse for the last two years, first hosting PSYCH 101 and now Boil the Frog. The process of discovering genres and artists that are entirely new to me has been extremely enjoyable, and I continue to find new sounds to fall in love with each week!
In addition to Pulse and giving myself back pain at my computer, I really enjoy learning about all kinds of creative mediums. I’ve dabbled in 3D modeling, painting, pottery, drawing, and have unsuccessfully tried learning guitar at least three times. I’m looking forward to expanding my horizons even further and finding some fantastic new music to play here on University Pulse!

Abbie Alling

Promotions Director

Salutations! 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 Indigestion 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!

Elle Stephenson

Operations Manager

Hello! I'm Elle. I'm a visual arts major, and I've been hosting my show, Letters From Your Valentine, since last spring. It's always fun for me to find new music to play, and new themes to explore each week. Aside from my involvement with University Pulse, I love spending time at the river, going out downtown, dancing, doing karaoke, making art, and watching trashy reality tv or, currently, King of the Hill! I'm really excited to be working with our lovely team and I'm overjoyed to have a place to share music with whoever chooses to listen!
