The future of the Winter Music Conference will continue to prioritize its essential purpose: to unite an aspiring generation of industry professionals and music aficionados for an entire week to continue to push the dance music movement to even greater heights. Who would’ve thought that an annual gathering back in the 80s would be responsible for the initial boom of an entire industry? Well, here we are almost 35 years later with an even stronger sense of purpose and direction and we’re totally here for it.

Currently based in Houston & Miami, I hope to inspire others through my writing. Electronic dance music has become a passion and a form of inspiration in my life, and I wouldn't change it for the world. I aspire to share this passion of mine with others and help them understand the uplifting potential it can have on our lives!
