Where did you get your start?
I started deejaying when I was 14 in Tucson, rocking dances and proms for my high school. I was able to intern for a cluster of radio stations during my senior year of high school. At the time, Chico, one of the radio jocks-hosts was also a club DJ and he invited me to watch him play at a Tucson club called DV8. When I saw the crowd pack the dance floor and move to the music he spun, I immediately fell in love with deejaying.
