Youth work is a passion that began for Exile when he was a DJ tutor volunteering his time. This shifted into a full time position as a Youth Transition Worker for two years, before he stopped to focus on his music career. Exile is a certified Audio Engineer having completed a Diploma in Audio Engineering. His expertise lies in his ability to fuse both his passions through utilizing music and technology, and he uses that as a foundation for his approach to youth development.
