I have been working with club music my entire life. Producing and mixing video and visuals was the next logical step. I love being able to stimulate my crowd with sound and images. I almost feel naked when I mix music-only shows. Right now is a remarkable time to be a DJ and I am happy to see that notable clubs are finally upgrading to allow VJ's to truly mesmerize audiences with multidimensional entertainment. I've invested countless hours creating a video show that offers a mind-blowing experience to club-goers, and most all venues I play at now, insist on having it.
