About Me

I'm a queer DJ, producer, editor, university lecturer, writer, barista and music scholar.

Here's my website:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

In the immediate future, I am looking for places to stay and rad folks to meet in Mexico City March 10-15th this year. Long-term, I love to travel and meet other creative types - especially DJs and other musicians, dancers, writers, thinkers, artists and activists.


I spend a lot of time thinking about the strange quirks of human beings, dancefloor dynamics, dismantling all forms of oppression, what 2010 nostalgia is going to look like in 20 years

Teach, Learn, Share

Always down to nerd out about music, whether it be DJ'ing, production, or just learning/teaching others about new music in general.
