Booma is a freelance DJ/Music/Dance artist. He has "been working as a freelance artist for over 15years. I work within the arts educational sector delivering workshops and projects, my aim is to inspire young people to get involved with music and dance, to explore their creativity and develop as individuals. “I started working as a freelance artist using my skills in music production, DJ skills and professional dance training as my chosen arts medium. I have found this to be an effective way of communicating and working with young people, which is both enjoyable and rewarding. In this way I can pass on my skills to other young people whom I work with, the arts is an excellent way to engage young people to express themselves creatively, often helping to build their lives in a positive, fun way."

"As a dancer I originally trained at The Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds UK, as a music artist/producer I released my first record in 1991 (Ability II - Pressure) which went on to achieve music chart success around the world (and has recently been re-released in Berlin) and subsequently have continued working in the music industry."
