Outtasite began his career in the entertainment business, recording demo's and doing spot shows opening for national acts in the Pacific Northwest.  After several years of hustling to stand out in the local scene, Outtasite was hired to back up Hip-Hop legend Sir Mix-A-Lot during live shows. Shorty after, Outtasite made his national debut in 1996 on the Sir Mix-A-Lot track "Funk4 Da B.L.V.D." alongside fellow members of his group "The Elite".

Several years later in 99-2000 Outtasite gained local attention for being the only relatively unknown member of an otherwise supergroup of famous Seattlelites "SubSet". After that short-lived yet door opening experience, Outtasite began working on solo material. Teaming  with guitarist Joel Davila (Fury in the Temple) for his debut album; "Right Side Down", a full legth c.d.  that featured Chris Ballew of PUSA , Sir Mix-A-Lot, Sev Johnson of the indy rock band "Peratus", 3 tracks with drummer Jeff Kathan, and bassist Lynn Sorensen (Paul Rodgers, Sex & Violins). In 2004 a sample of this self-decribed 'Hybrid Noise' landed on "Project Gotham 2" (X-Box) via the track titled "High Powered". Samples of Outtasite's debut c.d. have also been heard on MTV's hit show "Pimp My Ride", and Saffire Film's indy movie "Forbidden", among other random places, including Magmata Studios (then Meltdown Productions) 3D animated short film series, "IronSoul", featured as an Official Selection of the 2005 San Diego Comic-Con International Film Festival.

In 2004, Outtasite joined "The Presidents of the  United States of America" front man Chris Ballew to form  a new duo called "The Feelings Hijackers" or T.F.H. for short. After releasing thier self titled debut in 2005, the abstract duo began work on T.F.H. vol.2  "Skeletal Remains", released in September 2007.
