Axaya moved to Las Vegas in the mid 90’s. Initially, he started volunteering at KUNV as an alternate for KT on the world music program CQDX. In 1996, Doug Jablin at KUNV gave Axaya an opportunity to craft and host his own global sounds program, Mezcla. Axaya was on the air with the original Mezcla program from October 1996 to September 2001, returning from September 2007 to May 2010, and once again back since December 2011.

Axaya devotes part of his time to public education.
