“In a career like mine, you don’t get a lot of opportunities to stop and reflect on what you’ve accomplished. Writing this book has given me the opportunity to reminisce about the many wild moments of my career, from DJing at Stonehenge and base camp on Mount Everest to working with legends like Madonna U2 and many more at managing my own label. It also made me think more about crucial personal moments in my life that impacted me more than I initially thought, such as growing up with dyslexia. It’s something that started me on a creative path to which I owe a large part of my career. I feel privileged to share my life stories with you and there are already many more in the pipeline for upcoming memoirs! »
