    About this pro

    My eclectic background has served me well. Growing up in the Bay Area of Northern California exposed me to all the best music. My parents influenced me early on musically with great soul and RnB, while I picked up interest in Classic Rock, some Heavy Metal and Alternative music from my friends. Hip Hop was omnipresent, and most recently, more Electronic Dance Music has inspired me from the night life. I can scan a crowd and begin playing to their personality and mix it all together in a fun and creative format that very few can deny. Plus, I just love to have a good time and I think people can see this when I'm performing. I enjoy entertaining people and making them smile, dance and ask, "what great song is this you're playing?" I get inspired by the crowd and want them to go crazy on the dance floor. When I can get consumed by the music, enjoy the moment and energy with everyone else, is when I know everything is really going well.

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        People ask me how much do I charge per hour and I explain that each venue and client differs. Many factors that need to be addressed for an event like a wedding include: Location (how many floors does the venue have, what will it take to get my equipment to the dance floor, how many set-ups will I need?) Time of year, Day of the week (rates can drop considerably if an event is on a Mon, Tues, Wed), size of crowd ( more people means more sound), Lighting, and Travel. I always try to offer the best value I can to my clients and I want them to understand that when the job is done right, it's priceless.
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        Phone meeting. Note taking. proposal. Party!
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        Yes, I'm always networking with other professional DJ's to learn and share equipment and music methods. Through my inquisitive nature, I learned about Power Conditioners from a photo booth owner while at an event we both worked. Come to find out Power Conditioners look like a robust surge protector, but they will also filter any noises caused by electrical interference from the surrounding building you are plugged into. Think about what happens when a vacuum cleaner is running in one room and the "static" interference interrupts the TV playing in the next room. If you ever hear a buzzing noise through a speaker, it's the same concept and I can confidently know that I am bringing the "cleanest" purest sound to my clients at any venue with this device, despite how old the wiring may be.
