I was out shooting some photography last night with my friend Stephanie Lee [1].  We were in campus and came across this street performer Dj playing as people and cars went by paying him no attention.  We took some photos of him playing and took some time to talk with him about his playing.

He was originally from California but moved to Illinois for better weather for skateboarding which I can't imagine why!  He usually would play several nights a night from 11pm to 4am in the morning waiting for a friend to get off of work.  We had a much longer conversation and he seemed like he has led a hard life but is keeping his spirits high.
