Bonnaroo 2013. Wasn’t electronic dedicated but i got to see some great acts like Porter Robinson, Boys Noize, and Wolfgang Gartner.
What/who influenced you to attend your first event?
I had an old friend from high school get me into the genre my senior year of high school. When I turned 18 I dove straight into the community and haven’t looked back since.
What is one moment from an event that was special and why?
I got to go to EDCLV this year with the facemelt crew for emazinglights. Every night was so magical. One moment i remember was during Above and Beyond. They had a moment of silence for the victims of the Orlando shooting. Being a gay man, it was very special and all of my friends and fellow facemelters all gathered around and we all just hugged and kinda cried. It was very beautiful.
What is your favorite festival or event?
Bonnaroo has a special place in my heart due to it being in my backyard. But EDCLV definitely has become my favorite festival. The people, the music, and the production are the best I’ve ever experienced.
What is your favorite electronic song and why?
Nero – Etude. It’s so deep and dirty and just gets my blood pumping. It was one of the first songs I ever gave a lightshow to.

Skrillex, Deadmau5, Jauz, Parov Stelar, Astrix, Griz, and Getter
What are your favorite genres?
Deep House, Techno, Minimal, Trance, Dubstep, and Bass House
What do you feel your “Identity” is in the electronic music community?
I’m an entertainer. I feel I’m just an extension of the stage production.
Is there anything else you would like to add about yourself for the readers?
I’m the creator of the handle style of orbiting. I have been building and developing the style for about 1.5 years.
