A few words from the man himself...
I didn't become a DJ for the glory (there's precious little of
that), the money (HAH!), or the "chicks" (yeah right). I became
a DJ because I love the music. There's a very specific feel,
a very specific sound, that I crave the most; but it's hard to
come by at your average club or party. That's why I took matters
into my own hands.

I put a lot of thought into the progression of my sets. It's
all too easy to fall into the trap of just throwing on tracks, one
after the other, once one becomes skilled at beatmatching. My sets
are designed to tell a story, to take the listener on a musical
journey. I listen to recordings of myself on a regular basis to
refine my technique. I listen as a listener, not as a DJ, in
order to better deliver maximal impact to my audience. DJ
"tricks" are low priority to me; what's important is how the
music sounds, not whether I'm impressing other DJs that
happen to be observing me.
There are a few DJs who pursue perfection in their music
with relentless determination. They, and their listeners,
reap the rewards of that determination. These DJs have
brought me wonderful and powerful experiences in the past;
now I want to help bring those experiences to others.

Earlier in my career I had the opportunity to spin alongside a number of fine
underground DJs, such as LA favorite Nicholas Bennsion.
Today, in the burgeoning psy scene, performances by countless excellent DJs and
artists have challenged me to push my own music to new heights.
