I was once told, “I was born a DJ” and having a father who started DJing in the 1960s was a big help and influence on what I’ve chosen to do as a profession. I started DJing at the age of 11 working with my father doing events/parties on the weekends. This apprenticeship molded me and showed me many different aspects of being a Disc Jockey. I’ve learned the value of hard work, cooperation, perseverance and an impeccable work ethic. Now with nearly 30 years in the business I am a seasoned professional who can cater to many different demographics. My experience of knowing what music appeals to a particular crowd has served me well and has kept my business profitable for many years.
In the late 1980s (1987-1991) I attended UCLA and DJ’d many events for the school, as well as, fraternity and sorority events.
During the late 90’s I had to opportunity to collaborate with 2 childhood friends on a monthly parties called The FUNKHOUSE. The first party was a huge success despite the lack luster number of people who came…because we had a cool formula. Our musical selections started with funky jazz, old school and classic rare grooves sampled by contemporary rap artists.
My father also started a company called, School Entertainment & Activities Program (S.E.A.P., www.seap.org) which brought record industry artists, sponsors and radio stations to elementary, middle & high schools that we continued his work today.
Currently You can find me doing a host of Private events and the along being the sound and Production for the Savoy Entertainment Center in Inglewood.
