The idea was simple.
Leave behind the ´city slog´ to find a way to making a healthy living doing what we love and loving what we do, which for us, has always been the pleasure of entertaining YOU, Lucky Ladies and Gents.
The execution and realisation of this simple idea, however, was a far more complex and timely expedition than I and any of the Lucky Life performers, DJs, promoters, designers and media crew could have ever envisaged.

This has been my life’s work, and I’m sure far from done with it. Sometimes, in fact, I feel like I’ve only just begun. Well, that’s until I look back down the paths travelled and detours taken en route, the sacrifices made and loves unknowingly lost, the pain and the gain, the loans and the lessons, the connections we’ve made, the celebrations we’ve created, and the magical moments we’ve captures. For those that care to know more about the journey to a Lucky Life, here´s a recap of some of the steps taken so far.
Big thanks to everyone who has and continues to play a part in the making of this Lucky Life. My partners, co-creators, artists, clients, travellers, clubbers and every one of you who has watched, listened to, travelled for and danced a moment of celebration with Lucky Life, because if it weren’t for you, Lucky Ladies and Gents, it would just be …
