DJ Skillachi finds a quiet spot to build his Gala playlist in the Packer Tower
#KnowYourPelicans: Luciean Seaforth
Facilities Staff Member (and Packer DJ)
What is your favorite thing about Packer?
My favorite thing is being around the kids and my coworkers. The atmosphere and the environment at Packer — it's just nice.
Describe a favorite or memorable moment during your time at Packer.
For me a memorable moment was walking down the hallway one day, and seeing that a student had drawn a diagram including me as a part of his family! Knowing that he cared about me like that was pretty awesome.
Name a book/artwork/piece of music that changed your life and explain how.
One of my favorite books is Battle Royale by Koushun Takami... but a song that changed my life? That's a hard one: there are so many! A song I love is Stromae's, "Alors On Danse" — whenever I hear that song, no matter the mood, it makes me feel happy, energetic, ready for anything. I feel like I'm top of the world.
Are you playing it tonight at the Gala?
Of course — it's a must!
What are some things that most Packer people wouldn't know about you?
I was born and grew up in Guyana and came to the US on July 10, 2005 — Guyana Day.
I write and produce music, and I ran track in school. — Mostly sprinting — the 100 meter and 200 meter — though I did the 6000 meter once.
I love soccer: I played it relentlessly growing up. Soccer and ping pong — or "football" and "table tennis," as we would call it at home.
