About "me":

Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Started playing music as a DJ at the age of 15 in high school parties (1992).

As an avid dancer and music lover, I spent the following years going to several events that were organized in Buenos Aires's night circuit, and also performed from time to time, as a guest DJ in small underground events.

I have been mentored and influenced by Hernan Cattaneo, Jaytech and Shingo Nakamura.

A move to Bangkok followed in 2001, where I would spend my time networking, and trying to arrange my first professional paid gigs. Finally, I've got a DJ residency in a Korean bar. Later on, several other venues and bookings (gigs) followed including a 2007 Bacardi B-Live Tour around Thailand sharing stage with famous Thai bands. Also performed as a DJ for the Official Opening of Siam Paragon in Bangkok.

I also had the amazing opportunity to learn and perform as a VJ for a couple of years at a venue called Bed Supperclub in Bangkok.

I have acquired a good knowledge in IT, Marketing and Web Development which allowed me to further extend my DJ career.

I have produced a few songs in the past, having knowledge in FL Studio, Sony Acid, Reason and Ableton Live.

I have participated and worked as a DJ, VJ , event support and coordinator in over 400 events.

This is a brief list, (in no specific order) of some of the talented artists, that I had the pleasure of sharing stage with: Sébastien Léger, Jesse Garcia, Goldie, Boy George, Danny Rampling, URSS, Aldo Haydar, Nakadia among many, many other awesome artists.

I can define my music style by intense melodic riffs with powerful driving bass-lines and wild snares, showing my 80s-90s musical influences.

Today, I am dedicated to help those, who following their passion and love for music, long to become a professional DJ fast.
