First of all, congratulations on your win at the NYTVF and ITV Fest! Tell us about about your web series, That’s My DJ, and how the show came together.
Thank you so much! That’s My DJ is a series more or less based off my life and experiences being a DJ in Toronto. Each season follows a different character in the social circle of raves, promoters & night life. Started writing the show about three to four years ago and shot Season One. After a great response from the first season I jumped back into the creating chair and started hustling on Seasons Two and Three.
