Tenure: I started my DJ career at 5 years old when I used to help carry my dad’s speaker bags into the venue for him. I’ve been a full-time DJ since 2012.
Where did you grow up? Windham / Salem NH
What do you like to do in your free time (activities/hobbies)?
Spend time with my two fur baby beagles Murph & Waylon, CrossFit, Sports, Reading / Podcast / Learning, Kayak, Snowboarding, anything fun and active!
What is something that you have had the opportunity to do, that most people haven’t? I was my twin sister’s “Man Of Honor” as her wedding. It gave me a whole new perceptive of what the Bride & Bridesmaids experience during a wedding, it’s totally different then being a groomsman where I think the most important job is just to show up and be on time. Being her “Man Of Honor” I was responsible for so many details, I think the most import take away was the “Bride Emergency Kit” which is a small bag that contains just about anything for any situation (i.e. scissors, aspirin, etc … google search it and it will give you a checklist!)
What would most people find interesting about you? Besides being a twin and having two beagles, I would have to say people have found it interesting that I’ve coached CrossFit to people in recovery from drugs & alcohol addiction. I really enjoy helping people progress in life, it was great to see people take something bad out and replace it with something that was good for them.
Who are some of your personal favorite musical artists? First of all I’m like most people & LOVE all types of music! Personally I love EDM artists like Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Eric Prydz, deadmau5, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, there’s just something about that beat! I also like Hip-Hop artists like Drake, Eminem, T.I., Kid Cudi. Alternative Rock Artists like Brand New, Rage Against The Machine, The Killers, 30 Seconds To Mars. Country Artists like Dierks Bentley, Brantly Gilbert, Luke Bryan, FGL. And honestly you just can’t go wrong with good throwbacks from the 80’s or 90’s.
What is one of your favorite parts about being a DJ? The planning process. Every event is unique and every client has a vision for his or her day, I work hard to fulfill that. It’s the best feeling to see everything come together & everyone enjoying their event!
How would you describe your DJ Style? Enthusiastic & Versatile.
What is the best advice that you can give a Bride & Groom for their wedding day? It sounds simple but my best advice is for you to make your day exactly how you want it. Don’t worry about anything that you feel like you have to do that day and just make it about the things that you want to do.
What is the most unique memory from a wedding event? I DJ’d a wedding a couple years back where the groom and all of his groomsmen were from France. The bride was really hoping that I could introduce the French names with the proper accent, the problem was that I’ve never taken French as a language to learn. I spent a month memorizing the names phonetically and successful introduced them all that way! To this way I still can remember the names that I needed to memorize. It was an awesome party they were a lot of fun!
What is one of your favorite parts of a wedding or event? My favorite part is the Introduction. It’s such a rockstar moment filled with energy & enthusiasm!
