Over the years of his career Chris has evolved into a versatile DJ, spinning songs of all genres. His experience and passion for music elevates his performance sets, creating multiple opportunities.
“When I perform, my music takes me to a place where I can be myself without judgement or fear. I am never afraid to break the boundaries and I love creating mixes by melding different genres together. When I play music, I get to see how the audience appreciates my talents. Music sets people free, and I’m overcome with joy knowing that my life has a purpose by enriching the lives of others."
