Grew up in a musical household. The radio or turntable is always on, operated by my dad whose dad headed a polka band for over 50 years, until his death. Resultingly, I pursued music in college for a degree. For extracurricular activity, I started a radio program that allowed a venue to showcase my new interest in popular music. It continued into my time living in Chicago, where I started gigging as a DJ and made friends with other music producers in the area.
