However, his real evolution as a recognized DJ started back in the early 90's with his college days in Colombia. It was then that he began organizing parties at various venues in the capital, some of which he hosted at the famous 'Galpon' theater. In, 2000 he graduated from college with a degree in Visual Design. It was only 3 weeks later that he was on an airplane to New York, anxious but ready to bring his mixing skills to this magnificent city. He was soon involved in the NYC house scene, and has not looked back. Not only clubbing himself and checking out the biggest DJ's that NYC hosts regularly, but also playing his music at various clubs and exclusive events.
