A music lover and hip-hop connoisseur at heart, I grew up making pause tapes and my own faux radio shows in my basement until I graduated to a pair of turntables in the 9th grade – cutting my teeth rocking school dances and selling $5 mix cassettes to my friends in the high school hallways. When I was 18, I somehow convinced my parents to send me up to Emerson College to pursue my passion for the arts (thanks Mom & Pop), which opened up my eyes and ears to a whole new creative culture.

There at Emerson, I honed my skills with friends at the legendary 88.9 WERS radio show and continued on through my 20s producing music and working the event and club circuit from Boston to New York. For the past 10 years, I’ve been a partner at a boutique marketing company called Heavy. That’s my day job. But on select nights and weekends (when I’m not playing husband or dad) I’m making dance floors move and shake.

I’m well-seasoned in the wedding and event world, having worked unique and special celebrations for the better half of a decade. I tailor each event to the needs of its hosts, working with them to create an atmosphere that reflects their individual taste. And make it lots of fun! With carefully curated hip-hop, funk and soul as my base, I weave in and out of an eclectic array of musical selections (disco, rock, club, top 40) – transitioning seamlessly from casual cocktail party, through dinner and into dancing madness.

My focus with every event is to play the perfect music for the mood of the people in attendance…and to make you dance your ass off! That’s all you can ask for, right? I really appreciate folks who have a great understanding and sense of good music, and enjoy working with me throughout to create the perfect soundtrack for the big day. And hopefully that can be us, making some great memories together! So let’s see if we are a good fit.
