"My career is in its 14th year with no signs of slowing down. I’ve played just about every NYC lounge, bar and dance club from Wall Street to 125th, from Brooklyn to the Bronx, not-to-mention residencies and guest spots across the globe; I continue to work with a growing list of high-profile clients and world-renown artists; I spin some of the most celebrated annual events in NYC, including the Brooklyn Black Tie Ball, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Spring Gala and Central Park Summerstage to name a few; I’ve created the most legendary old-school dance party in NYC history, the award winning Freedom Party® (voted “Best Dance Party” by Village Voice in 2015; also a monthly in Chicago); and I continue to create unforgettable nightlife experiences for people from all walks of life."
