7. When did you realize that you wanted to be a DJ?

After going to my 1st rave in 1997. I’ve always loved music and would record my own “mixtapes” on cassette from the radio on my boombox. When I saw a real DJ in person I fell in love with how they commanded the room, made people dance, and they loved what they were doing.

8. If you could bring any DJ with you who would it be and why?

DJ Presto One. He is unbelievably talented as a turntablist, DJ, producer, remixer, music lover that always inspires me and opens my mind to new DJ techniques and is a really great teacher!
