For as long as I can remember, Djing has been my release. It has given me a chance to escape into the worlds I created: the turntables became my confidants, the language my music. I know that some of the greatest works of music emerged out of hardships, but I also know that great musicians can grow and develop in many aspects always never can learn enough. I know that with the one-on-one attention I would receive at your college/university, I can be shaped into the DJ/Producer I’ve always wanted to become. Being raised by my Mother has taught me that the focus shouldn’t be on where you’ve been, but on where you’re going—and more importantly, where you want to go. I wanted be a successful person in my family to go to college and graduate, but really I just want to be the first to truly follow my dreams. I have been fortunate enough to be apart of of amny youtube videos and projects within my area and around the world. I’ll never forget when my mentor, the late great DJ AM and the one and only DJ Qbert. "I’m a DJ.” These are words I never thought I’d be able to say, and if I am given the opportunity to study it in anyway im there. I know I can continue to prove to myself and others, and to myself that I really am a DJ.
Gee Thanks His Mom/ Family and All Who Support and live with the passion to follow there goals and dreams.
Peace and Love....
