He spent early years in Oklahoma where he began his schooling too. He was interested in driving partly due to the culture of street racing existing in his hometown. When in high school he bought his first car 1964 Chevy II NOVA for $2800. His father paid for the car in a promise he would pay him back.
Azn was a business-minded kid and good at graphic design. He created a job to pay the money owed to his father. He would leave a note to house owners asking if they needed to take safety measure, in case fire broke out and the fire department would be able to locate the house easily. He painted the house address in the curb and collected the money in return.
Growing up Azn was struck with the worst kind of fate losing parents in his teenage years. He had to see his mother struggle with cancer and later grieved her death at the age of 16. The remaining guardian, his father, had a defective heart valve and lost the battle in 2001.
Career and progression
Azn first mentor was his father who taught him to drive. Also, the duo put together and performed few modifications on his car including transplanting V-8 engine in his 1964 Chevy.
After Denis was gone, Azn met Sean Farmtruck Wheatley in a street race. At the time Sean Farmtruck Wheatley was holding the trophy for the street king, Azn was up against him. Although Azn lost the race, he met a friend, a mentor and father figure.
Right after the race two joked and got along, Farmtruck showed what he had done with his car C-10 Pickup. As their friendship flourished, the two started working together on several projects and participating in the race track as a team. Azn credits his driving skills and knowledge on the engine to the education Farmtruck gave him.
