A fun fact about you:
Before this whole DJ’ing game I was actually just a breakdancer. I worked as a full-time bboy. I travelled all around Australia teaching/performing in remote communities. I was also teaching on a weekly basis at different dance schools, primary schools, high schools and anything in-between. Worked alongside Red foo, Jessica Mauboy and starred in ABC TV series ‘Jonah’. The only reason I stopped was because of injuries, which is how I got into DJ’ing haha
Have you DJ’d internationally?
No, not yet. I have travelled interstate for gigs. I’ll get there, hopefully… hehe
Favourite DJ set so far?
One of the first nights I played at Laundry I was closing downstairs and after I played the last song (whatever it was) everyone was chanting ‘Smilez, Smilez, Smilez’. Best thing everrrr!
