As far back as he can remember, music has always been a big part of his life. Jody discovered his love for dance music at an early age. You would find him at the skating rink or teen club soaking up the grooves. By his mid twenties, Jody began collecting his favorite songs on vinyl. As his collection grew, so did his passion for the music. Then in July of 1996, Jody mixed his first 2 records together. At that moment he knew right away what he wanted to do.

After honing his skills for a few more years, he began seeking a residency in a city that was quickly becoming an emerging dance music mecca. May of 2000, Jody left his home in Tampa and made his way down south to Miami. He began playing at clubs such as Level, Space, and, State. His progressive tribal rhythms are second to none. Jody has played along side people such as John Digweed and Danny Tenaglia. Between his silky smooth mixing and great selection of music, he is truly a delight to dance to and he will keep you begging for more.
