Established in 1990 (fka Pink Six Video). I have had the distinct pleasure to VJ for Karloz (MNFCTR, Crunchpod et al.), Chris Mun, Johnny Caron, Jaime Meir; and of course Bluecrash, O’scar Pierce (aka Jack Ego), and countless others. I am eternally grateful to Joe Drazich (DrazichGrafix, DJ Tripper) and Tony Russell “DJ Blade” for opening the door for me to live VJing, and our friend Mark Arnzen (Metro Design Group) who built my first website [thank you for the Lain bear suit]. I must give credit to Chris Rosemond and Christian (LA seXtacy ltd.) for being seminal purveyors of the Rave scene in the USA.
At the outset I was blessed to meet and collaborate with Dayv Brooks (Foundation 451, Nintendo), who sold me my first gun (Sharp LCD projector XG-1000). I used the name Kollaps then. Later I met Glen F. (Aldus Corporation) and we collaborated together as Playdoh; but I already had in mind the name I would use as a solo artist for over a decade, and that was Pink 6 Video. It was a nice man that worked at Microsoft who did visual art as Live Nude Girls that took my idea for the Pink 6 logo [below] and made it a reality. The candy cane would spin; I wish I still had it. I met him thru Tasty Shows (Jared and Jason), whom I later parted ways with due to my false ego getting the better of me one night (my fault).
Thanks to Joshua Donaldson and Donald Glaude for my appearances at Club ICE and Hotel Mirage in Las Vegas. To Nick Bacigalupo for bringing me to the Midwest. To Jean Baptiste for numerous residencies in Seattle. To the original owner of Club Contour (Chris) who gave me a residency and later Clayton Allred. And much appreciation to Keith Olson (Scoochies [aka OZ Nightclub and DV8]), who gave me my debut appearance at Celebrities. I loved doing visuals at The Last Supper Club (Pioneer Square), thank you, Doug. Much gratitude to Brian Lyons (DJ) for allowing me to VJ for him at Flammable (Re-bar). And thank you Devin Ellis (420 Productions), for bringing me to Los Angeles before I moved there. Thank you to George Freeman (The Monastery est. 1977 [Seattle, WA]) for his innovation I only caught a glimpse of.
