Fully adept at spinning house, hip-hop, reggae, r&b, and classics; he enjoys putting music together in his own unique way, creating dance floors full of energy, and excitement. "Every event is different, you have to play for the crowd not for yourself" he says. “Sometimes I have to play dance and house music all night, and other times, it’s all hip hop and reggae. It all depends on the event. I love it when I can put all kinds of music into the mix. It keeps the energy level high, and the crowd never knows what I’m gonna do next.” No matter what the genre, his creative, art-like mixing ability is always evident, and appreciated. After all his years of experience, this young professional hasn’t forgotten the audience, saying “I love to hear the crowd roar when I play, no matter what I’m playing. That’s what it’s all about.”
