Jared is currently in his 4th year of the Honors Integrated Business and Engineering 5 year program at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, where he finds time on the weekends to tour the country and produce.
He began experimenting with Garageband in late 2009 and released his first "mashup" using Ableton Live 8 in the summer of 2010. Less than a year later he played his first gig, leading to an impressive 25 show tour in a short 9 months to close out 2011.
Initially started as a hobby to provide an outlet for his creativity at college, his mashups and bootlegs are now internationally recognized as some of the best in the game. The next chapter, however, involves producing original EDM tracks. He plans to take the summer of 2012 off from work and school to devote his time solely to producing and touring.
The stage name "Kap Slap" refers to his family line drink in the Kappa Alpha Society; immediately after one begins funneling a beer a shot of Bacardi 151 rum is added to the top, giving him or her a "slap" in the face.
