This comes from Medium.com:
The story of how I “became” The iPad DJ has been told many times. In a nutshell, I posted an impromptu YouTube video of myself using an iPad to mix and play music and suddenly received more attention than I ever anticipated, wanted, or could handle.
And yet, in the year after that video, “the iPad DJ” attended the Grammy awards, drank Cristal on stage with Jermaine Dupri, and toured the world playing over 200 shows, for Apple, Google, Microsoft, The White House Correspondents Dinner, TED and more. Without an agent or publicist to guide me, I found myself introduced by the Prime Minister of Lithuania before my keynote address at that country’s National Gallery of Art. I was the basis for a CSI:NY episode, ate lunch with engineers at Apple’s campus at least once a month for nearly a year, and was master of ceremonies for Kia Motors’ press announcement at the New York Auto Show. When Wired magazine asked Steve Wozniak about me, he responded, “I wish I’d had that much talent and energy when I designed computers!” It’s hard to imagine anything more surreal — or higher pressure — than that.
