I have been a record collector for over 23 years and a DJ for over 20 years.... Vinyl is my medium of choice. I grew up in Tampa, Fl. I started off collecting oldschool hip hop, classic rock, punk and alternative/ industrial and spent a lot of time in Orlando/ Tampa/ Tallahassee/ Saint Petersburg/ Melbourne/ Cocoa Beach Florida where I got into the electronic music scene at places like Beacham Theater (AAHZ), the Edge, Barbarella, Marrs, Brassy's, Firestone, etc.... I was mainly in the scene from 1990 to 1994 and then did not like the direction house and breakbeat was going so I started collecting downtempo, soulful/ conscious hip hop, triphop/ acidjazz, balearic, big beat, world ( asian, african, middleastern, indian, etc.) and turntablism styled music.... I felt like music was losing it's substance and SOUL, I still collected house and breaks whenever a special tune would come out, but spent most of my time collecting the 88-94 oldschool style music from what I consider the glory days of electronic music.....I lived in Athens, Ga. where I would collaborate with bands as their DJ. I owned a record/art store/ cafe called HARMONY for a year where I would DJ, throw events and have live acts showcase their skills. I have DJed art show openings, cafe/ coffee houses, at Oxygen (now closed) in Athens, Ga. Blue Sky in Athens, Ga. I Played the world famous 40 WATT CLUB, Played the famous GEORGIA THEATER in Athens, Ga. (house/ hiphop night, and opened for the artist Coolio) Nuci's Space, the Sand Bar and The New Earth music hall in Athens, Ga. and various one-off parties and also several places in the Tampa Bay, Tallahassee Fl. I just recently played an event called: VINYL IN THE PARK at Saint Petersburg, Fl. Pier and played at Bananas Music ( WORLDS LARGEST RECORD STORE) I also was music programmer on a talk radio show called CREDITLAND ( https://www.facebook.com/creditlandradio ) in Athens, Ga. which I still take part in broadcasting on occasion. I also did a weekly broadcast on an internet radio show (was also administrator for the company) spinning all genres of Electronic music from VINYL.
