  • Best Advice I Ever Received:

    Try to be the best person you can be on a daily basis. Get to know yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses, your needs, so you can walk with love and compassion through your life and with those around you. This is the pathway to happiness. Also, dance as much as possible.

  • Hobbies:

    I’m a multi-passionate person. My hobbies include dancing, cooking, gardening, kayaking, hiking, camping, going to concerts, and reading. I love walking with my dog next to the river and hanging up my hammock for reading or journaling while eating some homemade salsa.
    I’m very proud of giant playlists I’ve made. One of the best accolades a friend could give me is “you have really good taste in music”. Thus, playlists are a favorite gift I can give a loved one. I’ve been an urban farmer in the past owning and operating a small vegetable farm. I have a special place in my heart for blending all of these bits together at barn concerts with dancing, music, bonfires, and fresh food.

  • Genre Preferences / Specialties:

    I love most music. I grew up on classic rock and Americana. I would cook dinner with my dad and he would play classic rock, or Patsy Cline, or some 50’s or 60’s music. We would play “name that tune” with the radio on road trips. I grew up in the military and the people on each base had been exposed to a variety of music. So as “military brats” we would share the music that we learned about where we were stationed. I listened to all pop and R&B of the 80’s, 90’s, and today. I swing dance and thus know a lot of swing, big band, jazz, and blues. Some of my favorite music to dance to is funk and afro-funk.

  • My Relationship with Music:

    I’ve always been into music. I remember doing a science project in third grade called “Does Music Affect Mood?” where I played different music for my friends and had them journal about how the music made them feel. When I’ve studied abroad or traveled it’s always been important for me to see some live local music. I love concerts, dancing, and music just generally brings happiness to folks.

  • On Weddings:

    I’ve been catering weddings on and off for the past 14 years. I love creating solutions to issues that may arise on the day of, seamlessly, so the bride, groom, and their loved ones, can just create some lovely memories and have a great wedding. I believe that weddings are an incredibly special ceremony where couples commit to a union of love and support in front of their loved ones. Thus, I feel incredibly blessed to help bring the couples vision of the day to life making sure the dance party is unforgettable.

  • Favorite Part About Being a DJ:

    Helping the couple create the event they want. It’s a day that you’ve been planning for months and months and it can be stressful. The dance at the end of the day is where you can shake of all those stressors and worries and enjoy your now husband or wife, with all of your friends and family. I love both seeing the love of the couple and the love of all of their friends and family in support of their new step forward. Also, I love getting to play music and when the crowd gets really excited about the music.

  • I Want You To Know:

    I think on my feet and can make things happen. I’ve worked in so many jobs, organized so many large multi-faceted events, that it takes a lot to phase me. It is literally fun for me to ensure that you and your loved ones have a blast.
