Hookie has excelled as a DJ in Australia. He stands out from other DJs due to his hooks for hands, but the hooks have not slowed him down at all.

At the age of 19, Hookie suffered from a meningococcal disease, which led to permanent scarring and the amputation of all of his limbs. Hookie didn't allow himself to be a victim despite the extremely unfortunate situation he faced at a young age. Instead, he proved that a strong will can defeat anything. His ability to thrive as a DJ is a truly inspirational story.
