In chronological order.

It all began unexpectedly at age 11 with my first gig in fifth grade. I volunteered to play records behind a rolling chalkboard partition for the fifth grade graduation party, I knew then I loved to play music for others.

A couple of years later I scored a job working at the roller skating rink in my neighborhood where I later evolved to have a regular audience to spin for. Yes at only 13, Jerry Sethna gave me an early chance for employment; and to this day I still consider him a positive role model in my youth.

Three years later, my parents, invested in sound equipment & I began dj'ing school dances for Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District and performed about 25 events before graduating high school.

Moving on to what many call "just a party town," Nacogdoches, Texas and home of Stephen F. Austin State University; I managed to hone my mixing skills under great-friend & sensei Gil Carter. I also assisted in the opening of 3 nightclubs, and pull off a 3.45 GPA to graduate Cum Laude with two majors, a minor and my FCC license.
