What makes me unique

I bring knowledge, passion, and desire to your event. Having a vast knowledge and connection to music, and making seamless transitions instead of just simply pressing play and forgetting about it. The experience of working numerous crowds (high school, clubs, corporate parties, and weddings), at lots of locations. to understand what they want to hear and dance to, knowing that songs from totally different genres and years can seamlessly intertwine with each other. And adding to my passion for music I bring technical expertise that is rare to find in this industry. Everything from my backup concepts to the ability to hone in the perfect sound at a venue.

All of that personally drives me to give you the best night of entertainment.
