Tarik Moody shares stories of his many “cross overs” and what moved him to take them

About the speaker

Tarik Moody was born in Louisville, KY, but lived all over the country. He spent most of his life in Atlanta, Georgia. Tarik Moody graduated in 1996 from Howard University’s School Of Architecture in Washington DC. He practiced architecture in Detroit and Minneapolis.

While working full-time in architecture in Minneapolis, he became involved in volunteering for a local community radio station called KFAI. Eventually he hooked up with DJ Jennifer at KFAI and became co-host of the station’s long-running show, “Groove Garden.” In 2003, he became one of four hosts for KFAI’s “Local Sound Department.” In 2005, he got an opportunity to host his own radio show called Rhythm Lab Radio on Minnesota Public Radio’s music station called The Current.

Then in 2006, he was approached by the new Milwaukee radio station 88Nine RadioMilwaukee. Tarik made the leap from architecture to radio, and now works as the evening music host, and digital and online community manager for 88Nine RadioMilwaukee. He still hosts the award-winning Rhythm Lab Radio on 88Nine RadioMilwaukee and still has a passion for architecture and design.

Tarik also served for 14 years in the Army Reserves. His last position was a Captain in a Public Affairs unit outside of Chicago.
