A quote I live by: “Life is all about your perspective.” – My Father
Best advice I ever received: “As a leader you can never hesitate to worry about whether the decision you want to make it the ‘right’ one. You just have to make a decision, react to whatever happens and take care of your people.”
Seven words that describe me: Responsible, sociable, music-lover, hardworking, nocturnal, inquisitive, tech-savvy.
Five prized possessions I couldn’t live without: “Welcome to the Audience” by Mania Music Group, the first full-length album I worked on; my Technics SL-1200 turntables; my unit patch from the 400th MP Battalion; my copy of a deed for a land purchase signed by my great-great-great grandfather.
Something no one would guess by looking at me: I spent 8 years in the Army as a combat support MP.
On being a wedding DJ: “In my eyes, music is the only language that everyone can speak. All of the textures of sound are like having a palette with unlimited colors of paint. I try to immerse myself in music, and feel that I will forever be a student of the art. Every song has a place and purpose, and that is what makes DJing weddings so rewarding. Being able to play all sorts of music that adds to the enjoyment of one of the most memorable moments in a person’s life is very rewarding, and indescribably fun, too!”
