United States of America
Playing tracks for people, helping to illuminate the path to better music, has been my passion ever since I learned how to make a mix tape with a cd player and the pause and record buttons on a tape deck, early in my teens. In 1992, I moved out of my parents house to go off to college, and promptly started DJing at KWVA, the University of Oregon's campus radio station. There, I subjected my listeners to about a year of learning how to beat match as well as produce a proper on-the-fly set, culminating in my first official gig at a Eugene warehouse party. Since then, I've thrown parties, owned and operated a ServoDrive sound system, owned and managed a record store, created flyers, and taught other folks as much of my knowledge and experience I could.
The electronic dance music scene is in my blood, and I can't see living without it, or vice-versa.
Currently I reside in Portland, OR, playing clubs and festivals throughout the year.
