Are you born and raised in Los Angeles?

Kind of - born in south LA and lived in the Inland Empire, just east of LA county, for most of my life. I spent some time in Phoenix after.

 

Between music and photography, where do you find your inspiration?

With djing, I like to tell a story, paint a picture, set a tone or evoke some kind of emotion. Each song is inspiration for the next in my sets. With photos, it’s similar, but people are my favorite subjects.

 

Who are the people we see on your pictures?

My nearest and dearest friends.

 

Someone visits Los Angeles for the first time, where should they go?

Taco Zone! and any of the parties thrown by Directory Service.

 

I meet you in 10 years, where are you?

I would’ve never thought i’d be where I am today, so who knows where I’ll be in ten years… I still feel like I haven’t found my true calling. But I’m enjoying the journey.
