His grandfather was a Polka drummer who often told stories of playing with jazz legend Gene Krupa and instilled in him a strong sense of rhythm from the start. In his teens, he was drawn to the stylistic freedom and technical fluency of hip hop DJs on college radio stations such as WNUR and WHPK. He honed his craft for years before stepping out into the spotlight.
