Where were you born?
Proud to say I was born in this charming city we call home… Saint John!
How long have you been a part of the uptown scene?
I've been an uptown girl off and on for about 15 years now, but much more heavily over the past 4 years since I launched my hobby/passion as a nightclub & special events DJ.
What are your favorite nightclubs?
Well currently my favourite would have to be the Mexicali Rosa's?2000 square foot outdoor patio, since I became resident DJ there this summer, it's such a hidden gem! A close second would have to be the Canterbury Lounge with its beautiful decor and intimate atmosphere, plus it's the place that got me started on the 1's & 2's.
Currently my favourite musician would have to be The Weeknd. I have been able to listen to all of his music on repeat and haven't found a song by him that I didn't like.?
