He started off mixing records at local rave parties, and producing EDM events in the late 90s, while simultaneously playing drums for The Vagiterians (RIP). Fast forward to 2002. Mega Mike relocates to Chicago and begins catching the attention of members of the DJ community, and by 2005 joins the True Family Unit collective. In 2006 he becomes an official member of M.I.A. (DnB). He then co-founded Chicago's chapter of the globally recognized Konkrete Jungle, who were one of the original promoters to introduce a dubstep and drum&bass club night in Chicago (2007-2010). In addition to playing premier events, like North Coast Music Fest 2012, Wavefront Music Fest #1, and an official Lollapalooza afterparty, he's made exclusive appearances on Chicago radio programs including the highly regarded "848" on WBEZ 91.5 FM, as well as "Joystyxx Radio" (Loyola’s WLUW 88.7 FM), and "Part Time Sucker Radio" (Northwestern's WNUR 89.3 FM).
Forthcoming projects for 2015 include releases on Combat Digital recordings, remixes/edits, new club residencies in Chicago, and various shows nationwide!
