My Simple Philosophy
Who shows up on your big day shouldn’t be a surprise. They should know what they’re doing.
- My full time job.
- House Projects
- Everything else
I work full time at a non-profit called Youth Frontiers. I get to lead retreats daily for students focused on building community through character values. I speak every day on things like Kindness, Courage, and Respect to audiences ranging from 30 to 300.
I purchased a home a few years ago and have been slowly renovating the space while living in it! I have done projects ranging from painting walls to redoing all the plumbing in the house. I also Airbnb my home when I travel for work.
DJing is obviously a priority of mine and with two months off every year, I get lots of time to DJ weddings on the weekends! I do weddings and events year round – it keeps me busy and it’s work I love.
Everything else ranges from being social with friends, being an uncle to my newborn nephew, Theo, and enjoying working out and staying active.
I have worked as a public speaker for over 4 years and have seen countless DJs operate as the evenings hype-man from the moment they start playing music. My approach is a little different. Energy and mic presence have a place, but guests don’t need to be told to constantly “put your hands up” all night.
I believe the only time the mic should be in my hand is when I have something important to convey to the guests. Whether it’s vital information about a shuttle, the arrival of the Bride and Groom, or just a friendly reminder to find a seat, the DJ and host of the night shouldn’t make the evening about them.
As far as musical styles, I love all genres and often showcase that at gigs. I enjoy playing anything from Motown classics to new electronic dance. I aim to please and try to hit as many genres as possible to keep all your guests entertained. That being said, all events are different and if you want nothing but throwback hip-hop I am happy to oblige.
