With over 10 years of Wedding, Red Carpet, Club, and Private/Celebrity Event experience, I'm more than just your typical wedding DJ, but I love DJn weddings! My philosophy is that it is all about you. I'm here to help make your big day fun and memorable with a process that is collaborative and easy. I play all styles of music, catering to your tastes, and I know how to read the room to create a great atmosphere for cocktails/dinner and keep the party jumping when it's time to dance. I'm fortunate to work with many top venue coordinators, event producers, and private clients who entrust me to handle any and every type of party.
I take the time to do as many personalized consultations as we need and am always available to discuss music, answer questions, or bounce ideas off of. Based on our conversations, I tailor the music to your preferences to build a reception that is personal and unique to you both. I encourage you to input as much or as little as you like, knowing that you are in good hands and that I can quickly discern your tastes and fill in the blanks. I also work directly with your wedding planner and venue so that you don't have to sweat the small stuff.
I've DJ'd many destination and travel weddings, including recent events in Costa Rica, Cuixmala Mexico, Australia, and Cabo San Lucas. Also, I regularly travel across to US to locations such as San Francisco, Napa Valley, Seattle, Phoenix, Chicago, Orange County, and Santa Barbara. Locally to the Los Angeles area, I work regularly with top venues including The London Hotel, Chateau Marmont, The Four Seasons (Los Angeles and Santa Barbara), The Ritz Carlton, SoHo House, Villa Sevillano and many more.
In addition to weddings and private events, my corporate clients include leading global fashion brands (Nike, Prada, Burton, JustFab), businesses (Amazon, Activision, T-Mobile, Cisco), media (People Magazine, Esquire Magazine), film premieres (Bridesmaids, AFI, Jackass 3), non-profit (Chicago Institute of Rehabilitation, Bound Angels, LA WaterKeepers), and Red Carpet Galas (Golden Globes, Noche De Ninos). I have held residencies at many of the top clubs in LA and Las Vegas. As a DJ and live performer, I have toured and opened for acts including Phoenix, KISS, Franz Ferdinand, Foster The People, DJ AM, Nikki Minaj, Dragonette, Fischerspooner, Tommie Sunshine, and Bag Raiders.
My most recent TV appearance was a segment on Hallmark Channels "Home and Family", discussing how to make a great playlist for your party or event.
