MEET THE SQUAD

Andy Tran – Founder, Operator and Lead Writer
I’m a rapper, writer, and student. I started Waffle & Vibes to show love to hip-hop artists and overall creatives in general. As an artist myself, I realized there is much to the industry that goes overlooked or unnoticed. I aim to unveil the faces behind art we love, whether it be music, visual art, photography, fashion, or anything in-between.

Johnny Fan – Photographer
I’m a visual artist, content creator, and digital marketing student from Chicago. My superpower is to freeze time. What’s yours?

Patrick Duncan – Photographer
Finds joy in simple things, then tries to photograph them. Lover of music and fashion. New York is killing me… and so are cigarettes.

Keenan Tanaka – Writer
Just another lame kid trying to be cool. San Diego native trying to pass off as Canadian in Montréal. Sometimes I’ve been told I have good taste in music.

Jonah Buchanan – Writer
Struggling Berkeley student spoiled by years of San Diego sunshine. Strong proponent of underground hip-hop and cuffed pants.

Gloria Lin – Writer
Girl wakes up with optimistic new outlook. I’m constantly looking to broaden my horizons with art, writing, and social justice. Does life without coffee.
