My name is Chandler Kidd, but others know me as Nova, Nova Firestarter or Supernova.

In 2019 I discovered my love for house music through exploring the underground subcultures of New York City. This year Volume 11 is shifting gears and will be shedding light on polyamory, sex clubs, LGBTQ stories and Burning Man culture.

I rarely see journalistic coverage about these topics. I decided to go out on my own and cover them. I did this through intense first person coverage.

Chandler Kidd, Volume 11 founder and graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a BA in journalism. She currently is a graduate student at Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.

When Chandler isn't consumed by the crazy world of journalism, she can be found preparing for her first Burning Man, dancing at raves or doing yoga.
