1.So you are from Alabama, but live in NYC now?

Yes, I moved to New York at fifteen when I started modeling. I thought I should graduate high school, so I went back for my senior year which I regretted as soon as I got to homeroom.  But I got my diploma! Stay in school!!
 
 
2.When did you start to DJ?
 
I started DJing about six years ago at clubs, just for fun. I really loved it so I decided to quit modeling and do it full time four years ago. 
 
 
3.What are your favorite deep cuts to play?
 
I'm not really a deep cut DJ. I like everyone at the party to know all the songs I play.  
 
 
4.How do you get the crowds going?
 
I always focus on the girls! If the girls are having fun, the guys are having fun. 
 
 
5.Did you find it difficult to learn how to DJ?
 
It's like learning any new skill. Just a lot of practice and preparation and mess-ups. I was lucky to get a few gigs in the beginning at a couple of fun clubs. I would do really long sets, like five hours or more, and that was the best way to learn.
 
 
6.Do you take requests from the crowd?
 
I  take requests for private parties. My job is to make the client happy, so I'm happy if they're happy! I’m not quite as accommodating with requests at nightclubs but I try to be nice to everyone.  
 
 
7.What have been some of your favorite gigs?
 
I've done parties for clients like Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, YSL, and Vogue, and I get excited to work with brands that I've always admired.  As for nightclubs, Paul's Baby Grand is my favorite spot in the city. 
 
 
8.What’s the last thing you ate?
 
The Falafel plate at Oasis in Williamsburg. Never disappoints.
 
 
9.What’s your favorite social media platform? Why?
 
Instagram is the only one I really use.  I'm mostly there for the golden retriever puppy accounts.  
 
 
10.What music do you currently listen to?
 
Leon Bridges is really nice and cozy.  My high school favorites, Lil Wayne and Outkast, are also always on rotation.
