Theme party thrower/promoter with The Original Truth Squad—founders of the Jean Jam and Dad’s Night Out parties. VJ. Dancer for BadNraD‘s stage performance. Playatta party starter/bouncer. My face is on a bumper sticker, a t-shirt, and a Kahndom. The DJ crew WAK LYFand I have teamed up to throw a monthly dance party called Da Funk, which is held every second Saturday of the month at Clubhouse Jäger, although I have only been doing it every other month in 2011. Also, I once entered a dance contest on the stage at a night club in London and won. This is the crowning achievement of my life thus far.”
