How long have you been in Radio? How did you get into the business?
Well, I just jumped into the mix of things here at Hot 103 back in May 2013, but I’ve been a DJ for 5 years now. I got a summer internship, and they loved my amazing voice so much they decided to keep me around.
Where are you from? Talk about the child version of you?
I’m straight out of El Paso, but I grew up in Sunland Park, NM. I’ve always been a wild child—very enthusiastic and outgoing, ever since I can remember.
When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut. I can’t exactly say what drove me to be a DJ, but all I know is that I fell in love with music.
Who was some of your favorite musicians/artist to listen to growing up?
Growing up, I’ve always been around all types of music. It seemed like every year I was into a different genre. In my late high school years is when I really felt the power of house music.
What has been a stand out moment in your radio career thus far?
Well I’m just getting my feet wet, so I haven’t experienced much yet! But just the fact that I’ve worked with some of the best in the business, and I already have my own radio show, is a stand out moment on its own.
If you could have a conversation with the younger version of yourself, what would you tell them?
There would be so much to say. But honestly, I’d tell him, “Keep doing what you’re doing and never give in. Ambition fuels the dreams of the ambitious.”
