I've been Djing since about 1994(when I was a freshman in High School) and have since toured all around the world many times playing genres such as Hip-Hop, IDM, EDM, Techno, Jungle, Trap, Turntablism, Funk, Punk, New Wave, 80's pop, 90's pop, 00's pop, Dancehall, House, Acid, Trance, Progressive, Grime, experimental, Bassline, Breaks, Moombahton, Ambient Freestyle, Disco, Jazz, Tribal, downtempo, Electro, electroclash and more. Although I'm usually playing outside of New York in the EU, I've done a number of big clubs in NYC over the years such as NYC Summerstage, the Apollo Theatre, Williamsburg Hall of Music, McCarren Pool & Irving Plaza to name a few.

I teach all levels of Dj from beginners to advanced additionally and I run an Online DJ school called TTM Academy (see below). In 1999/2000 I invented a system of music notation for dj music/education that is called the Turntablist Transcription Methodology that has been featured in "Scratch" the movie, Time magazine, Blackbook Magazine & More.

So I teach all forms of skratching as well as mixing, effects processing, studio production and mastering. I've been teaching DJing over 15 years so I've got quite a bit of experience working with any type of set up. As a producer of a wide range of beats styles, I've released records on in all formats (mp3,cd,dvd vinyl 7 & 12 inch etc).

I've also received a number of awards for my DJing including the DJ Q-bert Skratch Legendary award. I've toured with Groups like Dj DangerMouse, Bright Eyes and the Faint as well as openened for legends like Aphex Twin, Stereolab, The Last Poets, Dead Prez and others. I teach kids and adults including house calls and long distance skype lessons. My general rate is 25 an hour for a minimum of a 2 hour session and 20 an hour if you reserve 5 hours at a time.

Former students include Shayne Oliver HBA, Jenny Blaze, Dj Echo Aoki, Proper Villians.
