1.Taste. I have an incredible ability to not only stay on the cutting edge of music, I also find the next big thing first.
2. Fearless: I am committed to breaking new music and styles for my audiences. I’m it afraid to jump out the window and play a song I believe in new or old.
3.Intuition: i vibe off of my dance floor. I don’t control the floor I “feel” where it needs to go.
4. Love. I don’t DJ for the girls, the drugs or the money. I do it because I love music. Every time I touch decks I am there to share my love for music if that’s a venue full of thousands or a brunch patio with a few tables. Every person who hears me is going to feel my love for music.
