Me, Myself & I

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN:
My mother and father were both music junkies. My mother was a go-go dancer and a singer when she was in her early 20s and my father was voted best dancer in high school. While in my mother's womb, I think I became addicted to the sound of music. Ever since then musical settings have often been where I've seen the magical transformation of people, both individually and collectively! This is what inspires me to DJ, the endless possibilities for transformation.
I strongly believe it's not what you do, but how you do it! I am a DJ for two reasons:
1) I love music. I am not a turntablist, I can't scratch like Q-Bert! BUT I know what moves a crowd. I know what can make people happy and that to me is the greatest honor and privilege.
2) I love what music can do. Music has been a tool for me all throughout my life. My life's work and spreading my message: "We're all equal. There is nothing like looking over a dance floor and watching people who are completely different yet in this moment blissfully united and spreading positivity. Music has the power to alleviate the way in which we fell and bring us together."
I was exposed to music/shows/performances/concerts/etc since I was a young child. I've met interesting people (famous and not) and I got to share my love of music.
I grew up listening to many different forms of music that all influence me today and in time my musical tastes just kept expanding. Basically, that's the story. Music has always been a huge part of my life and I know that it will continue to inspire me, move me and hopefully move those around me!
