How long have you been DJing?
How do you travel for DJing weddings?
I have the unique ability and opportunity to travel to destination wedding locations in the USA. If I need to, my compact system is relatively easy to fly around. In several locations, I have gear in town. I usually travel with a carry on and a checked bag full of everything else I need. I do not charge a travel fee for many locations. It has been absolutely amazing to be able to catch up with friends and do some adventuring after a wedding in some my favorite places on earth.

- I’ve been professionally deejaying since 2004. After a few summers in The Columbia Gorge and the rest of the year on Maui, weddings quickly became my specialty. My passion and experience within the industry has since led me to become a full-time wedding and private event deejay for several of my favorite places in the world.

- I am a music collector and have a vast and diverse iTunes library of over a 150,000 songs. The mix I create encourages everybody to have a good time.
- I understand the balance of entertaining and making sure the focus of your night is about you. Emceeing in a conservative, classy fashion throughout dinner, then engaging your guests in cheering for you on the dance floor, fits most weddings..
- It is YOUR night and I play what YOU and YOUR guests want to hear. I do not do crazy remixing, or sample tossing.
- I always keep an attentive eye on the dance floor and interact with your guests. I do not just stare at my laptop.
- I always take requests. I can always download a song during your wedding if for some reason I don’t have it. I also provide ipod hook up.

- I offer additional services such as HD video projection, monograms, slide-show production, personalized recoded first dance voice-overs, games, karaoke, participatory dance coordination, and extra lighting. Some of these services are free!
- I can do a live recording of your entire reception. I send the mp3 to you afterwards so you’ll always have a great music mix to listen to! Listen to some of my mixes here.
- I am insured and promptly provide a contract. The 2 million dollar insurance policy and contract are stored and accessible both online and on paper.
