Laura Catherine Lalinde, also known as Ame Hakubi or Amethyst, is a professional talent manager, graphics designer, dancer, musician, and voice actress, from San Antonio, Texas who along with her husband Sephi Hakubi, perform with a major focus in fandom within the anime and the EDM scene. She is the sub-leader of the AnimEDM collective, Hau5 of Hakubi, and serves as the Senior Executive Vice President for their upcoming label. Ame also works for underground music groups Just Don’t Stop Productions (JDS) and Hard Dance Texas (HD:TX) as a promoting partner.
Ame’s mission for a long time has been to utilize her various talents to make the world the better place, which she still continues to develop and execute over time. First breaking through as an artist in San Antonio, the works and contributions of Amethyst would be featured throughout many of San Antonio’s venues and publications. Eventually finding her way to a commission of a good friend, she created a logo that would eventually change her life as that logo was for her future husband, Sephi Hakubi. Ame and Sephi shared the same ideas of PLUR as well as a devotion to the rave scene and their fans; as a result, they’ve joined in business as well as in marriage and worked together to showcase their brand and talents in PLUR culture. Ame’s leadership talents are backed from her experience on the field as she has phenomenal talent in her own right from DJing, singing, dancing, and lending her voice in story plays, video games, and radio. Do say “Hello” when you see her at panels she and Sephi will host this year and check out her official radio debut on Weekly Rave Smash, episodes 75 and 76: https://www.mixcloud.com/
