What’s the most epic sports moment you pulled off or didn’t pull off?
I was a pole vaulter in high school and college and during meets I would drink water out of a flask to mess with my opponents.
What song would you select to play over the mini golf speakers when you get a hole in one?
I’m cranking Bon Jovi’s “Living On A Prayer” because I’m going to need all the help I can get to make that little white ball get in that hole.
What have been some of your favorite moments while DJing and dropped ‘Never Say Goodbye’ and ‘Overload’?
Up until recently I rarely played my original tracks in my sets because I had an unrealistic fear people would hate them, but the first time I dropped “Overload” live it was the most validating feeling I may have ever had in my career.
What festivals and clubs have you played at? I think the festivals that I’ve loved playing the most were Beach House Festival in cabo “from what I remember between tequila shots” and my first festival I ever performed at Super City 50 at Oakland Collesium which was amazing to play in a stadium because my batting average was too bad to ever play in one.
What is a message or the story behind ‘Never Say Goodbye’?
The overall message of the song is that no matter what life throws at you, you don’t have to say goodbye to your passions and art.
