Q. How did you decide to become a DJ?

I then started entertaining my friends, playing from two cassette decks and eventually moved to Cd's. I always dreamed of being on radio...but working behind the scene. My day came in 1997 while working part-time at The Jamaica School Of Music (Edna Manley College Of The Visual And Performing Arts as a studio engineer, where I also studied Goldsmithing at same college. Arnold Wedderburn worked the night shift on HOT102 and needed an engineer. I've been in radio ever since (mostly as a broadcast engineer). I started Djing seriously in 2002 at HOT102 (under the mentorship of Bunny ‘The Mighty Burner’ Goodison), moved on Newstalk 93fm and now at the KOOLEST station in the Nation Kool97FM.
