After a few years of Djing for small private parties, a core group of friends that I was lucky to be a part of decided to check out the Shambhala Music Festival outside of Nelson, BC. My experience with the atmosphere and music there (Dubstep was just hitting North America like tsunami) inspired me to start making my own music, my own sounds, and begin a journey through music that has been an incredible life experience. Shortly after that epiphany, I relocated to Nelson, met some more amazing friends, and continued developing my sound.
Art is an incredibly fulfilling pursuit if its done for the right reasons, but it can also be a venture that makes it hard to survive. For that reason, to pay the bills, I spent the last eight years fighting forest fires in the summer but always came back to music whenever I had the time.
