After studying the craft and admiring well known  DJ’s such as DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Screw, DJ Drama, Kid Capri, FunkMaster  Flex and Big Von, he officially became a DJ in 2004 while attending  Huston-Tillotson University, fulfilling the dream that he had since his  middle school years.

 “When I’m DJ’ing, its  like trying to figure out a puzzle. How am I going to get these people  to have the time of their lives? Then once you figure that out its an  indescribable feeling of achievement.”
