Leslie Kirchhoff isn’t your typical 22 year-old. Originally from Wisconsin and now living in the Nolita neighborhood of New York, she’s a photographer by day and a DJ by night.

So basically, she’s one of the coolest girls we know.

While still attending New York University, she landed an internship at Vogue.com, which evolved into freelancing gigs for the site as well as Teen Vogue, GQ.com and many others. She graduated in 2013 and now travels the world photographing and DJing events.

This week she’s headed off to photograph one of the biggest music events of the year, Coachella, and we’ve asked to come along for the ride. Head to our Instagram at @JanSport as we follow Leslie and her friends as they frolic in the hot desert and soak up the sounds and music of the festival.

You can also follow #JanSportJams for the photo diary as well as news on emerging music.
