Talent Committee, Forest Stage Manager, Fundraiser Party committee

As the host of a radio show on CJSW 90.9 FM called “The Mix Up,” and a part time contributor to magazines like FREQ and Beatroute, I’ve had the opportunity to see a lot of talent come and go in Calgary. FozzyFest has been a big supporter of local and regional talent for 11 years now. I first experienced the festival six years ago, when one of my friends was booked for the festival, and it gave her the opportunity to showcase her talent as a DJ, as it has many DJs before and since. The care and love that a small group of people have put into this festival year after year, often out of pocket, attracted me to it.
I’m also a DJ myself, playing under the 8bit Ninja moniker, so I understand what it’s like to be an artist applying or playing at the festival. I’ve been privileged to work with many talented people, both great and small, and toured many festivals. This year marks my 11th year of DJing.
