Auctavias grew up in Saint Paul, and has been a musician for as long as he can remember. He started DJing and rapping in high school, and decided to continue that pursuit by attending school for audio production and engineering. His biggest challenge in learning to mix his own music is learning what it means to have ownership over his own work. Auctavias likes to stay active and in shape, and he does so by hitting the gym regularly and rock climbing when he has the opportunity. His most memorable experience from a wedding was the first time he saw what happens when a St. John’s crowd hears “Piano Man.” When asked about his language skills, Auctavias claims to speak sarcasm fluently – but is also proficient in English and Spanish.
