On weekdays you will find him at the Pioneer/El Records Headquarters working closely with new and established artists developing their sound and fine tuning their tracks. In his free time, if he’s not finding the hottest music or gigging at the trendiest events, it is very possible that you may find him on a street luge board, travelling downhill at speeds ranging from 60 – 120km/h. Label Manager, DJ and downhill skater, this kind of talent combination is an adventurous journey of deep beats and dynamic dance floors.
