Once a month, he performs at the Brillobox for “Shame On...”, a four-year running anything-goes jumparound dance party with longtime friend DJ Cutups. In late 2009, he became the resident DJ at the new Round Corner Cantina in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh. In early 2009 with fellow DJs Aaron Clark and Ryan Walsh, he formed Hijack, a house and techno music event production consortium. For many years, he has been a regular guest DJ at “Ya Dig?”, an old-school funk and soul every Tuesday night at Kelly’s Bar and Lounge. He is the music coordinator for the Sprout Fund's annual Hothouse event. He has been an event consultant and DJ for multiple incarnations of the Carnegie Museum of Art's Carnegie International-most recently "Life On Mars: 55th Carnegie International" in 2008. He was a full-time music and event curator and resident DJ for The Andy Warhol Museum from 1999-2004.
"i started playing records to make people dance while in highschool in rural SW Ohio. "Pump Up The Volume" by M|A|R|R|S blew my mind and made me wanna get serious. i was a radio DJ on WRCT while at CMU (and for sometime after.) i started throwing experimental art raves in Pittsburgh in 1995. "The Final Comedown" featuring DJ Spooky and Badawi was the first one. i started regularly DJ'ing house and techno music at bars and clubs in 1995: Kaya and Soba (with Spike R.I.P.); Zythos (now Z-Lounge); Metropol (upstairs lounge); etc. i worked for Hypervinyl Records (a DJ record store and label formerly in Oakland) from 1996-1999. besides Pittsburgh, i've played records most frequently in NYC (for the Bunker and SoundLab) and Miami, FL (for WMC.)"
