Music has always been the soundtrack to my life even at an early age. Although I am a product of the 80s music scene (when I started producing and DJing) I am inspired by a very diverse selection of music.

I started spinning house music in Pittsburgh in 1988 playing records I would bring back from my trips to see my family in Chicago. It was a much simpler time, since there weren't 50 genres of house. I remember hearing Derrick May play when we brought him to Metropol and that made me really want to produce electronic music. I released my first record in 1990 under my alter-ego Euphoria called "Euphoria" and "I Like Noise" that begun my touring of the rave circuit around the USA. I performed as Euphoria and DJ'd as Strobe everyplace from the East Coast to the West Coast and back, performing with pretty much everyone that inspired me to do this in the first place and racking up a few hits along the way.

In 1993 I got burnt out from touring and the rave scene and packed my studio up and off to New York I went for the next decade. When I moved to New York, I worked for Logic Records, DJd at various clubs including Limelight, Webster Hall, and Save the Robots. I worked at a few record stores, and even partnered up in a used computer/music gear store called Crocodile Music and Computers.

I must admit, I don't know how much luckier it gets to be able to do this for a living. I toured as Euphoria DJing and doing live techno shows, played gigs with Moby, Prodigy, Quadrophonia, Jeff Mills, BT, you name it.
Ive met and made friends with most of the people that inspired me to do electronic music, earned 2 gold records, released a bunch of original tracks (everything from house, techno, latin house, to chillout), remixed records for artists like Britney Spears (yeah yeah, I know but the mix was cool), Kevin Rudolf, Timbaland, Owl City, Maroon 5, The Killers, Missy Elliot, Norah Jones, UNK, and collaborated with so many great artists and producers, and to this day still get paid to do something I love, producing/remixing music and DJing. I have never lost my passion for creating music no matter if it's a big name artist or an up and coming talent and approach each project with that frame of mind.

I've released over a dozen commercially available mix CDs, and I have a weekly mix show on iPartyRadio and Apple iTunes Radio's Electronic station called "Journeys in Electro House" now in its 121st episode and a successful podcast on Apple iTunes. I help out with the Red Bull Music Academy info sessions in Pittsburgh, and strive to help those who want to learn the art of music production and DJing as much as I can by mentoring people young and old. I keep releasing original productions and remixes, and hold 4 residencies around the city spinning upfront house and club music.

My studio consists of an Apple Mac Pro running Cubase and Abelton Live via Boot Camp. Every once and awhile I pop over to the Mac side and do some work in Logic or Reason. My favorite plug-ins are Lennar Digital's "Sylenth1", Native Instruments "Massive" and "Pro53", Refx "Vanguard" and "Nexus" , Spectrasonic "Trilogy" and Rob Papen's "Albino" as well as my Universal Audio UAD1 card for processing.

In 2010 I became a billboard Dance Chart Reporter and in 2011 I started a new residency at Static nightclub in the Strip District
