"It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up magazine. Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def & DJ Wayne in a limousine."
I started DJ'ing as a kid with two boom boxes, cassette mixtapes, a deep love for music, and an imaginary microphone. Turntablism / Turntables and DJ'ing as an art form came into the picture after completing a term in the Air Force, when I expanded my love for music and worked my way through college as a DJ. That's where I earned a B.A. in Film & Audio Production, and I then went on to become a certified Audio Recording Engineer. Over the past 12+ years, DJ'ing has brought me to many amazing locations & events in California, Hawaii and abroad, like opening up for the B-52's, to block parties spanning an entire city block of San Francisco.
I have a vast knowledge of music and a knack for reading crowds to decide what to play next. As an open format DJ, I can incorporate many different styles of music into my clients' dance parties. If I'm throwing a party of my own it often involves 6 main styles of music: Funk, Soul, Latin, Old School Hip Hop,EDM (Electronic), and Reggae. But whatever the type of music is that I'm playing,I believe people are energy, and I use music to bring an inner peace to people and an overall feeling of alive-ness…My sets usually include pre-recorded artists,but I often include a live component as well where I might create live remixes, mashups,and even original creations.
When it comes to private events like club rentals, weddings, corporate parties etc, I love each and everyone of my clients, and thrive on making meaningful connections with them. I also believe that every event is unique and use my adaptability to create parties that represent the mood, feeling and natural vibration of the people & places involved.
I am often asked, "What makes you better than other DJ's?"-or- "Why should I hire you, instead of someone else?" -and my answer is simple, -because you want someone who's professional life is guided byintegrity, authenticity, connecting with people, and a humble confidence in his DJ & MC abilities.
