I began DJing back in the summer of 85’.By the summer of 86’ a friend and myself would bring the equipment outdoors to play for block parties, house jams, school dances, etc.
As the years past I constantly practiced, honing my skills and discovering various styles of music along the way. By the early to mid 90’s I started to play in clubs such as NELL’S, CLUB USA and THE TUNNEL to name a few.
After a few years of that, and dealing with shady promoters I turned away from clubs and directed my attention to the emerging lounge scene. The downtown lounge/bar era had come into full swing and I was right in the middle of it.
I’ve played in just about every bar/lounge in the downtown Manhattan area, many of which had come and gone and some to later become iconic mainstays.
In the past 13 years I’ve moved on to playing for more event orientated functions. Such as, art and photography openings, skateboarding competitions and various corporate events.
I’ve traveled to TOKYO, FUKUOKA, LONDON, HAWAII, BERLIN, STOCKHOLM, CANNES, PARIS and a few states in AMERICA.
In a few words I love what I do, but I play for the people.
