A quote I live by: “You are what you are and where you are because of what has gone into your mind. You can change what you are and where you are by changing what goes into your mind.” Zig Ziglar

Best advice I ever received: “Perfect practice, makes perfect.”

Seven words that describe me:  Passionate, gregarious, creative, detail-oriented, ambitious, rational, health-conscious.

Five prized possessions I couldn’t live without: My Technic 1200 turntables, my MacBook Pro, my Redskins season tickets, my autographed Michael Jackson “Thriller” album, and my music collection.

Something no one would guess by looking at me: I once had a pet pig and I can do 17 backflips in a row.

On being a wedding DJ: “I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to take part in the most important day of a couple’s life.The aspect I enjoy most is being able to work closely with a couple from the initial meeting until the day they say ‘I do.’ I look at deejaying as an art form, and I am committed to bettering my craft every day.There are few things in life that bring me as much satisfaction as knowing I helped contribute to a couple’s special day.”
