He stays in communication prior to events to make sure during the day the event runs smoothly – so professionalism is big with him. He says his goal is “to be remembered as that DJ that shows loves to the city & local artists, very professional, humble, kind, supportive and lit.” He wants whomever that books him to know he will show up and show out without him having to tell them and to be excited that he’s their DJ for their event. Fun is a top priority, because at the end of the day that’s what he’s DJing for.
