Styles played: "Many variations and hybrids of house, juke, funk, hip-hop, ambient, drum & bass, dubstep, rock, and everything in between!"
DJing philosophy: "I am more focused on the energy of the music than the style. I enjoy learning about the history of electronic music and bringing that knowledge, diversity and range of decades through my sets. I sometimes work around themes depending on the event, but always allow myself to flow freely with the direction of the sonic journey, allowing the speeds to sometimes change dramatically and mix in sometimes unconventional ways. It is rare that I play a set of only one genre or style. I like to switch it up and surprise people. If you listen closely and often, you'll hear some favorites I just can't let go of—tracks that I've held onto for years and years since I started DJing 11 years ago."
Format: "CDJs! I now use CDJs with a USB stick option and utilize both."
Worst request: "Hmmm, ha ha. This isn't quite a request, but I remember DJing a house party once and I started out my set with a Vangelis song from Blade Runner. Someone was very unhappy with it. They were very vocal about it, and I just kept on playing it! It got more dance-oriented after that track, but Vangelis is a sacred artist to me and that is a perfect soundtrack, so I wasn't having it!"
