Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Bochi began breakdancing at the age of 13. During his high school years, he and other fellow students organized an after school breakdancing club open to all those who were interested in bboying.  He then expanded his training to choreographing performances and entering various breakdancing competitions throughout Chicago. Bochi was later introduced to Stylin Out, a Chicago born breakdancing crew. Under Stylin Out, Bochi and his crew helped organized Kfest's (Korean Festival) Bboy/Bgirl competiton and hosted for 4 consecutive years. Today he continues to pursue his dream to travel across the world and teach his passion for dance.
