He first made his mark in the club scene by performing in local nightlife scenes such as Ybor City, Soho Tampa, and downtown St. Pete. After some time in the clubs, he sought an apprenticeship opportunity with a local mobile Dj company to learn more about weddings and private events. His apprenticeship spent with the company taught him how to play to various demographics of people and increase his reach with entertainment versatility.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The road to starting a business on your own was difficult. There are many challenges that arise. A few of them that come to mind are lack of awareness, support, and mental health.
When you first start a new business, nobody really knows who you are. The biggest challenge was attaining clientele in the beginning from different marketing outlets. While social media has grown over the years, it was still very challenging in creating a new business and getting the buzz that I wanted. More so the awareness was when I did small events and people would hire me from word of mouth. However, in a positive note, once the presence was made at those events, I would then get calls from multiple people who would sooner or later turn into prospects.
Support was something that when I first started my career as a DJ, I did not receive right away. Sometimes when you are new into something, finding people that will stick with you from the start can be difficult. Over time, however, this changed as I quickly begin to gain momentum and then started to turn heads in the industry. I think in order to gain that respect and support you crave, it’s how your willingness to succeed and keep your eye on the prize. Sometimes people need a little bit more convincing to see what the whole vision can be.
The third greatest challenge was my mental health state in balancing school with my craft. It was very difficult at times to work full time and be in school full time and sometimes would be mentally draining. I will say that in college or any busy situation there has to be a strong use of time management in order to not clutter yourself with stress. I suffered from anxiety in college that would hold me back from a lot of the things and a lot of it was caused just taking on more than I can handle. However, with balance, working out, and focusing on self-care I was able to beat my stress and budget my time accordingly to live a healthier lifestyle.

Can you tell us more about what you were like growing up?
Growing up I was always very outgoing and social. As the years progressed, I took my personality and found a career where I would be able to capitalize on my extrovert skills with Djing. I always loved music and would watch the DJs at local parties all the time. I was mesmerized how they worked the crowd on the dance floor. Little did I know that in time I would be on stage doing the same and creating amazing memories.
