How did you get your start with what you do?
In 2002, When I was fresh 18, I went to a nightclub in Newcastle called the ‘Mercury’ & Was blown away by the idea of playing records to a crowd of dancing people. So I went to the local record store, Patsans Dance Music & got one lesson with George Patsan. It was only 3 months after I purchased two Technics 1200’s and a mixer.
