It’s official everybody! I will be the new face at Lucky’s this year for the UW Badger home games; the ULTIMATE Pre & Post game Headquarters!!!

In 2013, 18 year old Aprina Paul from Madison, WI answered an ad on Craigslist not knowing who or what lay on the other end. She was never to be seen from again. Her body was found in a home in Evansville, WI burned to the point where authorities couldn’t prove a murder.
Writer/Director Rafael Ragland and I have been asked by the mother of Aprina to make a movie on this story in hopes of raising awareness of the dangers of internet dating & preventing something like this from happening again.
We are looking to raise $10,000 to cover production costs to tell this story.
Production costs that will be incurred during filming: Wardrobe, makeup, travel expenses, Production Assistants, crew, talent, props. Sound/Audio production & engineering, equipment (upgrades + new), locations, promotion/marketing and more.

New year, new music!!! I am pleased to present you guys with a new song that I produced for freestyle legend & recording artist Rochelle! For those unfamiliar with Rochelle, she had a huge hit in the 90’s with her single “Praying For An Angel” (which was big on dance radio and in urban latin communities such as New York & Chicago). The song was produced by acclaimed producers 20 Fingers (“Short Short Man” by Gillette, “Lick It” by Roula, “Fat Boy” by Max-A-Million just to name a few). I grew up on all sorts of music, including freestyle. I was a huge Chicago House & Freestyle fan back in the 90’s as well as of Rochelle’s song “Praying For An Angel“. In fact I used to own one of her records too (“NeNe“) when I was a 14 year old kid DJ’ing for fun in my bedroom. So when her manager Rigo approached me about producing a new song for her, I was honored. This song is in latin but has a contemporary dance sound to it (think Calvin Harris & Jump Smokers).
You can download the song for free over at her ReverbNation.com/RochelleMusic page!!!
