What was your first electronic music event?

In the beginning, I went to desert raves in Arizona. My first Massive was EDC in 2006

What/who influenced you to attend your first event?

My older brother was a DJ & B-Boy. Growing up listening to house music, wearing JNCO jeans & looking at all his rave flyers influenced me heavily.

What is one moment from an event that was special and why?

EDCLV’s 20 Year Anniversary. Above & Beyond was playing, I was with my best friends, and we were all singing and dancing. I was going over the past 10 years – my move to phoenix and how I have made the best of friends since & my love for EDM/travel/festivals has grown and just how many amazing things I have experienced. It was a feeling of peace, love & gratitude.

What is your favorite festival or event?

My favorite festival is Groove Cruise. There is no event or family like it! I have met THE best people who have become family &  I can’t go anywhere in the US without some of the family being there, wanting to host/party/be friendly. Here is a picture of GCFAM taking over the Wet Electric Phoenix after party! I’ll never ever get over groove cruise!

What is your favorite electronic song and why?

“In The Dark” by Tiesto will forever be my favorite song. <3

“Cause I will be there
And you will be there
We’ll find each other in the dark
And you will see
And I’ll see you too
Cause we’ll be together in the dark”

This song came out during a very trying time in my life and the words really hit me in the feels.
Forever grateful for all the friends who became family through the love of electronic music.

What do you feel your “Identity” is in the electronic music community?

My identity in the music & life scene is a warm hug & smile of acceptance, love, appreciation and a chance for whosoever path I cross to be heard.

Is there anything else you would like to add about yourself for the readers?

That I love you all! I hope to see you EDC Las Vegas & Groove Cruise 2017 baby!
