I started my artistic journey as a local artist and non-profit owner benefitting the community through neighborhood engagement events. These events included food vendors and local music ensembles. I was participating in events and decided to participate in Raleigh New Years Acorn Drop (NYC ball drop equivalent) for about 2k - 3k people as my second DJ set ever. To supplement my profits from community work I was working as a waiter in Raleigh’s finest restaurants when I met Drea.
