BEST LIVE CONCERT ATTENDED:
Roger Waters: The Wall Live Tour in Los Angeles, 2010. I got to experience some of my favorite Pink Floyd songs performed by the OG, Roger Waters, himself. Also, B-Real from Cypress Hill happened to be sitting a few seats away from me so I got to meet him. To top it off, it was the first concert I ever attended!
FAVORITE VACATION DESTINATION
Got to go with my hometown, Lima. Nothing beats hanging out with my childhood friends, playing street soccer and spending time with my family — not to mention eating my grandma’s cooking!
Animo moved to Los Angeles at the age of 10 after being born and raised in Peru. Though the kids in school would get creeped out by his Peruvian custom of greeting girls with a kiss on the cheek, he had something special that helped him make friends: a kick-ass taste in music.
This led him to start producing music at the age of 12 and DJing at the age of 14. By the age of 17, he already had his own mobile DJ business through which he DJ’d parties weekly and had won several music contests for his production. In college, he interned as an audio engineer in Christopher Lennertz’ studio and refined his DJing with some of the greatest DJs in LA at Scratch Academy, all while maintaining a 3.9 GPA.
Today, he pursues his dream of becoming a leading-edge DJ/Producer. By studying and practicing acting, improv, dance, audio engineering and music routinely, Animo covers all his bases to make sure that he can make your event the best it can possibly be.
