What was your first electronic music event?

My first electronic music festival was Beyond Wonderland 2016.

What/who influenced you to attend your first event?

After months of nagging from one of my good friends (Bryan Mendes) about going to an electric show, I finally caved and went with him to a show. Once I attended this first event I fell in love with the people, the music, and the vibes.

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

There was one specific time where I had a girl at Beyond 2016 try on one of the very first prototypes of our vibrating music backpacks and she freaked out and began to cry out of happiness. I felt touched to know that I made her night by providing her with this experience.

What is your favorite festival or event?

Northern Nights in Humboldt County. It is a small 5,000  person camping festival held in the woods adjacent to a river. One of the stages is even against the river and the whole crowd is in inner tubes enjoying the music. It is amazing!

What is your favorite electronic song and why?

“Keep it Mello” by Marshmello. There is just something about that song that I can listen to it 100 times on repeat and still be jamming out the same on the first play and the 100th play.

Who are your favorite artists?

Marshmello, The Chainsmokers, and Flosstradamus.

What are your favorite genres?

Future Bass, Progressive House, Trap

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

I truly feel that my place/identity in the electronic music community is to help others have the time of their lives both at events and at home. I have always enjoyed helping others enjoy their lives and make the most out of every situation that when I entered into the electronic music community it was a perfect fit.

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

I am honored to have joined the community of electronic music lovers and will be hitting every big festival on the west coast in 2018 so hopefully we will cross paths
