My favourite thing in the whole world is gathering together a group of my favourite people, heading out to electronic music events and meeting amazing people in the scene.
I live for a variety of creative pursuits, including music production, DJing, freelance graphic design, sound engineering, and teaching.
I'm a music producer predominantly. I'm signed to several labels covering house and trance music. I've been making music for around 12 years and so far I've been successful, scoring gigs across the UK and europe.
I also coach Music production and host Music production lectures as a way to get extra cash. It really helps.
I graduated from the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design in 2011, with a degree in Visual communication and graphic design, and worked as a freelance designer for a couple of years.
I've done pretty alright considering I once swallowed a two pence coin during a heated battle of Pokemon cards. Sometimes I think it gave me super powers. Other times I think I was just a special child.
I'm musical, artsy, motivated, introspective, playful, optimistic, hedonistic, and excitable.
My personality type is ENFP!
I'm rather extroverted. I love the opportunity to passionately exchange ideas with people, though I don't feel the need to dominate every conversation. I enjoy listening for long periods just as much as speaking for long periods.
I'm a socially energised person and I enjoy seeing people having a good time and doing well. I tend to lead social situations and ensure everyone is enjoying themselves.
I'm confident, very open, and I always have time for anyone wanting to chat. My larger than life sense of humor really shines when I'm telling stories.
Singing in the shower.
Dancing to the music in my head.
Listening to the same song OVER AND OVER.
A small selection of my favorite musicians includes:
Armin van Buuren
Above & Beyond/Oceanlab
Super8 & Tab
Carbon Based Lifeforms
If you've heard of more than one or two of the above I have a drink with your name on it waiting at the nearest bar.
Trance music has been a love of mine since forever, and so the values, themes and expression the genre perpetuates have influenced me as I grew up and are now responsible for my happy outlook on life and my generally sunny disposition. It is a core part of my identity, and it leads my life decisions.
You don't have to be a massive trance music hippy like I am to gel with me, just smile and nod, it works for most. :)
Other than that:
Rockstar Energy drink.
And a hell of a lot of sex.
Honestly if you managed to read everything up to here, you deserve a prize.
