Where can people find you? San Diego - Rich's, Bourbon Street, Numbers, The Flame. Adding more all the time so keep an eye out!

When did you start spinning? Two years ago this March, Dj Nikno started to show me the ropes in the DJ booth of The Flame and it just started to grow from there.

Vinyl or CDs? Started with CDs but now I am all digital.

What type of music do you spin? Top 40, hip hop, electro dance with a lot of music videos now.

What type of music will you NOT spin? I don't think there is any music that I wouldn't spin. I will play for whatever event I am at. If I have it, it’s fair game.

What is the most bizarre song request you have received? While spinning in Hillcrest once, I had someone request that country song about his big green tractor! It took me by shock and I didn't have anything to say about to that.

What song do people request the most? Right now people still do "Bad Romance" (Lady Gaga) a lot but it’s starting to change over to "Telephone" by Lady Gaga.

What is the funniest thing you have seen on the dance floor? Pretty much any time a bar I am working at has a stripper pole and you get a few drunk guys or girls on it, it is always entertaining to watch. Someone always falls off then the other two try to keep their "sexy" dance going. It’s kind of what I would imagine a strip club during the day being like with all their “C" girls working.

What is the most scandalous thing you have witnessed while spinning? I am sure most DJs would agree that it is when people try to get away with sex on the dance floor. I don't know how drunk you would have to be to think in your head that you’re alone out there but it just amazes me every time!

Which venue or party was your favorite to play at? Everyone that I have worked so far is my favorite and usually it’s not the venue that makes the night. It’s the people. If the venue is awesome but the crowd isn't feeling the music, then it can make any night horrible.

What do you love most about being a DJ? The feeling I get when I am spinning and the dance floor is a mass of people smiling and having a great time. I love the music too and how my job requires that I am always on the lookout for the next big song/video.

What song best describes you and why? Ke$ha’s “Blah Blah Blah." It describes me, it makes me smile and it puts me in a great mood.
