How would you describe your music style, in non-technical terms?

It will make you dance :)

How and why did you decide to become a DJ?

Have always had a passion for music, so I bought a controller to mix with my senior year of high school in 2012-13. Did not start mixing seriously until 2014 - my sophomore year of college.

Tell us a bit about your fans.

Mainly teenagers to young adults.

What are your top 3 influences? Doesn't have to musical.

every single world-famous DJ/Producer that is younger than me! (Oliver Heldens, Martin Garrix, Slushii, etc.)

Any guilty pleasure(s)?

Cleaning

All-time favorite track(s)?

all early 2000's Lil Wayne

What is your favorite festival, why?

Ultra Music Festival or Lollapalooza... Tough choice because they're both unique. Ultra because everyone is there to dance and be happy; Lollapalooza because it has such a wide variety of music choices and vibes at different parts of the festival.

Funniest/weirdest thing that ever happened during a gig?

In the middle of playing a set with all EDM, a woman asked me to play the cha cha slide..... great song, but I'm sorry!!!

What advice do you have for someone looking to book a DJ? Other than "book me!" ;)

Book someone who you see to be genuine because you will find them to be easier to work and communicate with.
