I was born in Los Angeles, I moved to The Bay Area (San Francisco / Oakland) for 15 years, and in 2015, I moved back to L.A.
My creativity has always revolved around art, culture, politics and sports. I began my creative career as a percussionist, which morphed into a DJ career that has lasted 21+ years. Throughout the years, I’ve learned skills such as video production as well as being a self-taught graphic designer, photographer, web designer, social media, and creative direction.
Over the years, I have worked for entities such as NFL Network, Bleacher Report, Rock the Vote, Ashoka, and the City of Inglewood.
While I have worked hard over the years, my work never defines me. I am always down to converse with, mentor, and help fellow creatives as well as people and organizations of color to discuss jazz, hip hop, last nights game, the latest exhibition at the nearest museum, or anything else that promotes growth and wellbeing.
