As a Southern California born and Madison, WI made DJ, Iâ€™ve been rocking the decks since my diaper wearing days. Back then, Iâ€™d rifle through my parentâ€™s eclectic record collection looking for something with a beat so I could bounce. Today, I love all types of music from Hip-Hop to House to Mainstream Top 40. While my tastes have changed a little, I owe it all to my origins when I was barely old enough to experiment with the controls on my parentâ€™s old walnut veneered record player. Being born and raised in Southern California, I grew up with a passion for music and love being the life of the party. However, I ventured off for Madison, WI back in 2005 to pursue a degree in Journalism & Mass Communication at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Five years later, I found myself on the music scene doing the DJ thing. It may seem odd to some to consider that it wasnâ€™t until I left a huge music epicenter I got my first real opportunity to showcase my skill set. However, being away from home and in a new place, I took on the challenge and hit the ground running. With no formal experience, I learned my skills on the fly. Over the last two years Iâ€™ve made leaps and bounds learning the biz and perfecting my skills on the 1â€™s and 2â€™s. Like any good DJ, Iâ€™m always keeping my ear to the street so that I can bring it to the next level. Working full time in radio programming gives me a distinct advantage over my competition. I always know about the freshest music coming out and spend countless hours going through music submissions. Over the years, Iâ€™ve honed my ability to select music and instinctually recognize the next big hit when I hear it. As soon as you step into a venue, youâ€™ll know Iâ€™m rocking the decks due to my signature style and ability to get everyone onto the dance floor. I make it my goal for everyone to have the time of their lives when Iâ€™m in the DJ booth. My passion for music comes through at every event I DJ. Currently, I specialize in video mixing throughout the Madison and Milwaukee areaâ€™s hottest bars and nightclubs. Some of the more notable places I currently DJ or have DJâ€™d include Wandoâ€™s, State Street Brats, Sublime, Brotherâ€™s Bar and Grille, OAK, Dick's, Buckhead Saloon, Blackthorn Irish Pub, Segredo and several private events. I also occasionally spin a live radio mix show known as the "Mix @ 6" on Madison, WI's WJQM/93.1 Jamz.
