In Toronto, she rocks the city’s coolest venues including the Drake Hotel, The Ritz Carlton and the Thompson Hotel, in addition to playing regularly for corporate clients such as Scion and H&M, and major events such as Toronto Fashion Week, The Canadian International Auto Show and The Interior Design Show as a favourite DJ for Bello Sound.
