The year was 1991. Brick sized Cell phones were just breaking the mold of personal beepers, Legends of the Hidden Temple was on every TV screen and C&C Music Factory's 'Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)' was causing everyone to stop what they were doing and infact... dance now.
Then it happened. ErikZ was born and the world would forever be changed.
Okay, nothing really changed, at all, but someone needed to bring back the amazing-ness that was the 90's.
**Begin Real Bio HERE**
Modeling at the age of 5, Acting at the age of 7 and DJing his first real party at the age of 8, ErikZ has grown up with a love for Entertainment. Whether it's hanging out On-Air at 1035 KISSFM, DJing a festival for 4000+ patrons or Hosting both on screen and on stage, Erik is a performer to the core who loves nothing more than just being able to make others laugh.
After starting his own Internet Radio Station in High School and attending Columbia College Chicago for Radio Broadcasting, ErikZ joined the 1035 KISSFM Team as an Intern, then Promotions assistant, followed by a programming assistant and finally a On-Air Personality.
At the age of 21, Erik is one of the youngest personalities currently in the Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Network and THE youngest at KISS (which would explain why he is constantly making coffee runs for everyone).
When not in the studio, on stage, dancing or DJing, Erik loves taking long walks on the beach while reading 50 Shades of Gray... err.. he means, The Twilight Series.
So... Does this make 'Knitting' Manly?
Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling has an unusual way of unwinding after a long day on set - he likes to knit.
The actor picked up a pair of needles for his role in the 2007 drama Lars and the Real Girl and admits making "oddly shaped scarves" has since become a hobby.
He tells Australia's Gq magazine, "I did this scene in Lars and the Real Girl where I was in a room full of old ladies who were knitting, and it was an all-day scene, so they showed me how. It was one of the most relaxing days of my life.
"If I had to design my perfect day, that would be it. And you get something out of it at the end. You get a nice present. For someone who wants an oddly shaped, off-putting scarf."
