Biography

While I enjoy the privilege to mix music for a variety of people and events, I am especially humbled when I have the opportunity to lend a hand (literally) in creating the soundtrack for a couple’s wedding day. It is a deep honor and one that I take to heart as I craft custom music mixes for each couple. Much of my free time is spent hunting down records and practicing mixing genres of music from every decade. This way I can build a truly unique mix that truly everyone can enjoy.

Have you ever walked into a restaurant, grocery, or department store and the first thing you noticed was what was playing over the speakers? This is my life. I walk into the Central Market down the road from my house once a week and can’t help but instantly notice what this business has decided to play for everyone. Whether people want to or not, they are actually paying some attention to what’s being played. And when the little old lady grabbing her almond milk starts mouthing the words to “I Wanna Be Your Lover” by Prince, I think, “I need to play this more!” Taking the time to pay attention to what others find entertaining and what they consider to be ‘good music’ is one of the best parts of my job. It’s research, and I’m always working. Music is as much in my everyday life as it is my career.

I’ve been Djing since 1999 and have discovered that I am not selling a service, I am creating an experience. I consider myself fortunate for having the pleasure of continuing to create memorable experiences for clients via music. Life is good.
