Weekdays 6 AM - 12 PM

As a youth, I’ve always had a passion for music. I would stay tuned into Bay Area iconic radio stations that created a platform and foundation for the sound of San Francisco. At 16, I got my first fake ID and began my adventures into the club world. I found myself at the legendary nightclub Studio West where, for the first time, I heard DJ Cameron Paul blend two records together and as they say, “The rest is history.”

Studio West was where I learned to mix records and work the lighting system. I was taken under the wing of San Francisco DJ Godfather Cameron Paul to learn how to become a Club DJ --- this is truly a lost art. Most DJs today don’t know how to take their audience on a musical journey.

After a few years of spinning in every nightclub around SF, I was hired to mix on KMEL as one of their POWER MIXERS. I later became the first DJ to mix “Live” on the air in the Bay. It was also during this time I began cultivating my promotions skills at the biggest nightclubs in SF (ex: City Nights) and started throwing my own parties. I eventually went from DJ/Promoter to Night Club Owner (ex: Limelight, Loft 11, The Room)

Today, I continue to work as a consultant on nightclub projects and work as an on-air personality for The NEW Q102.1 - The Bay's Old School.
