How did you start your DJ career?

I kicked off my DJ career pre-COVID with a used controller and an online set that somehow caught fire. Joe Whitaker, the heart of the DILF Party, threw me into the deep end to open for Kitty Glitter in Dallas. I dove right in, fell head over heels for DJing, and then—bam!—COVID hit the pause button.

How would you describe your music style?

I describe my music style as a vibrant blend of global inspirations. I love weaving dramatic vocal tracks, especially female vocals, with rich Middle Eastern rhythms and lively Latino flair. It’s about fusing diverse world elements to create something uniquely energizing and danceable. My sets are designed to offer something different, keeping the dance floor alive and moving all night.

What is your favorite part about being a DJ?

Every gig is a chance to make a difference in someone’s day. Whether it’s playing that one track that everyone waits for, or introducing something new that captures their imagination, the impact is real. Watching the transformation in the crowd, seeing their burdens lift-even if just for a night-fills me with joy and purpose.

What do you enjoy most about the circuit party scene?

It’s all about the connection for me-traveling to new places, meeting people who light up at the same soundtracks, and seeing the wild array of outfits that could outshine any fashion week. It’s a whirlwind of music, fashion, and laughter, where everyone’s just a beat away from being friends.

What is your advice to anyone who wants to become a DJ?

My advice to aspiring DJs? Brace yourself for long nights and even longer hours tweaking tracks behind the scenes. It’s not all glitz and glam—more like sweat and beats. And remember, try to read the room, not just your controller. If you look up once in a while, you might catch someone actually dancing to your tunes—and hey, that’s when you know you’re doing it right!

What is one thing you'd like people to know about you?

Off stage, I might seem like a bit of a quiet soul, but put me behind those decks and it’s a whole different story! I’m an introvert naturally, but when I’m DJing, I flip into party mode. Just know, if you see me around and I’m not chatting much, come say hi—I’m super nice, just a little shy!
