His DJing skills have landed him on stages for the Indspire Awards, Canada Day 150 Main Stage in Ottawa, National Aboriginal Day LIVE presented by APTN, and multiple festivals across Turtle Island.

His first single, HOKA, reached number 1 on the Indigenous Music Countdown and landed him licensing opportunities providing music for CBC, APTN, and Vice Media. His latest single, “The Sage Is On Fire”, also reached number 1, making it his 3rd single to reach the top of the charts on the Indigenous Music Countdown.
