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

My musical style would be best described as versatile and diverse. My main goal is to have everyone on the dance floor and enjoy the music.

How and why did you decide to become a DJ?

I became a DJ because I felt that I wanted to do something that I really enjoy and DJ was the niche for allowing me to expand my creativity and knowledge of music.

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

It's not always about the $$$$..... It's great to get paid for your gigs, but if you do not love DJing or have the passion of doing it...then don't do it. It's all about the love and passion that you have for the music you play and making the crowd enjoy the moment.
