When I’m not deejaying weddings, I can be found: Hunched over my laptop, developing logos, identity systems and marketing materials for new companies.

A quote I live by: “Overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of the chance to be extraordinary.” – Uta Hagen
Best advice I ever received: “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
Seven words that describe me: Loyal, articulate, independent, creative, driven, attentive, perceptive.
Five prized possessions I couldn’t live without: iPhone, laptop, headphones, my favorite hat, my two dogs.
Something no one would guess by looking at me: I’m obsessed with HBO’s original programming — documentaries, original series, etc. I think all their writing teams are geniuses!
On being a wedding DJ: “I love the challenge of taking someone else’s musical tastes and reinterpreting them in fun and creative ways to put together a great party.”
