About Me
Pretty much a mixed style DJ and VDJ (Video DJ/video mixer). Love all variations of House music; can bang out with Drum and Bass or mellow out with some classic House tunes. House and Reggae were his forte in the beginning, circa 1988, but by choice swung into Miami Bass (popular at the time) and Southern Rap, but do to his listening tastes he expanded into Top 40 / Dance and 80's even dabbled in Disco and Motown a.k.a Oldies but Goodies. As such, technically there is nothing he doesn't play or can't play which comparatively against others gives him the upper hand over most DJs due to te depth of music genre he is skilled in.

First came mix tapes, literally a mix done on a 30/60/90min tape (pre mp3 days), for the fellow college students while at Howard University and other for others in the area, then came the parties; house parties, frat parties, and various venues in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore metro areas. Washington, D.C. area [DC/MD/VA] was home base as a freelance or mobile DJ primarily with gigs ranging from boat parties like the Spirit of Washington and Spirit of Baltimore to residential house parties; residential and private pool parties; college parties for Howard University, Georgetown University, American University, Maryland University, and George Mason University; Bar-mitzvah's, various regular or weekly events for Greek Organizations like Omega Psi Phi; guest DJ for promoters/private events at Chicago's, Touchdown Club, Annistasia, Kilimanjaro, Heaven and Hell, Ritz, Mr. Henry's, Quigley's, Club Upscale, WHBC 830AM, House of Representatives (yes the place on Capitol Hill), and fortune 500 christmas parties regularly and a stint as resident DJ/Manager at Cancus Restaurant Supper Club.

He grew tired of the crates and coffin lugging from gig to gig and Semi retirement from DJâÂÂing in 1995 and began dabbling in streaming media and scripting effects on-line and exploring his tech interests. He continued doing private parties and infrequent club visits and with the advent of various mix software eliminating the need to lug crates and coffins around has now made a return back into the main swing of DJing promoting music to the world and expanding the gift of mix.
