Colombia and back

DSC07020 copy

DSC07024 copyI’m starting to get used to traveling. I’m nowhere near being a full-blown jetsetter, but I am slowly becoming a monthly regular at LAX. This time around I flew out of the states over to South America to do some production work  in Colombia. I know that sounds suspicious, but I give you my word that everything that went down was 100% legal. I was just working the biggest music festival in Colombia, Estereo Picnic.

Even with all the traffic that clogged the streets of Bogota, my driver was kind enough to take the scenic route to the hotel I was staying at. This gave me the opportunity to see a bit more during my short stay in Colombia, since this was one of those work trips where I fly to a country for about 24 hours, then fly back home. Very similar to my trip to Amsterdam.

It was a struggle to leave my baller hotel room, but I had a live set to run for DJ/producer duo, Deep Dish. It was great closing out the festival and doing another successful show with them.

36 Hours in Amsterdam

Last weekend I was flown out to The Netherlands to do some live production work for Deep Dish at a massive show at Amsterdam Dance Event. ADE is the biggest EDM club festival in the world, with 300 events in five days…

Canada Trip

I’m just now starting to travel a bit more. I recently got the opportunity to do some live production work out in Toronto at Digital Dreams Music Festival. My buddies over at VT Production commissioned me to handle stage production for the recently reunited house DJ duo, Deep Dish…
