I started DJ’ing in college playing on vinyl, but really got into it about 4 years ago when I decided to buy a controller and teach myself on digital medium. My first big opportunity was when Diskull saw me play at an after party and then asked me to open for Hunter Reid. That has lead to some incredible opportunities (See below for a list of shows).
The meaning of FreeSurf: Growing up as a competitive surfer, sometimes surfing was stressful. Battling for waves, hoping the judges scored you well, etc. But then, you would go for a free surf! No judges, no concerns, just you and the waves! Free to ride the wave any way you want. I imagine music is the closest any non-surfer can get to the feeling surfers call "Stoke." When you are on the dance floor and everyone is interpreting the sound waves with their own dance. No worries of being judged, just moving to their own rhythm. Come ride this wave with me!!!

FreeSurf played on The Struggle Bus at Electric Forest in 2018 and 2019 in front of 8-10k people. Also hosted FreeSurf & Friends on The Struggle Bus at Imagine, and has had some epic b2b’s with the likes of Steve Darko, Diskull, DOMii, Qlank and others. In Jan 2020, he played the Official Pre-Party for The FriendShip and then was asked to play an Official Dial-A-DJ set on Ship. Returned to The Friendship in 2023 and played several of the Regegade pop-ups.
FreeSurf & Friends:Since I was asked to host friends on The Struggle Bus at Electric Forest, I have somewhat branded FreeSurf & Friends and have since done a takeover at Elements, Imagine and have started a weekly FreeSurf & Friends night in Charlotte. I will be adding FreeSurf & Friends in Fort Lauderdale soon!
