Your DJ Story

How did you first get interested in becoming a DJ?

After moving to LA, I started to seeing more female DJs, and every time I would see a female DJ crush it at a bar or club, I knew that I wanted to pursue it 

What aspects of being a DJ do you enjoy the most?

Seeing the crowd respond to the music you are playing, watching them dance, grind, and sing along drunkenly is so much fun.

Favorite DJ story?

Getting to play an event at the tallest building in Los Angeles over-looking the entire city, and crushing it.

If you could go back in time and give one piece of advice to your beginner DJ self, what would it be?

Lose your ego & be ready to work.
