When I'm not deejaying weddings, I can be found: Art Directing various freelance projects doing portrait illustrations in graphite, and finding the original source of samples in hip hop songs (I currently have a list of about 120 samples that aren't completely obvious!).
My other interests: Car design (if you know who Chris Bangle is, we'll be friends forever!), modern art, and creative writing.
Favorite music artists: The Roots, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Portishead, Cinematic Orchestra, Thievery Corporation, Redman, Massive Attack, Esthero, Black Moon, Mos Def, The Neptunes.
First dance songs I'm enjoying lately: "All of Me" (John Legend) "Dream a Little Dream of Me" (Ella Fitzgerald), "The Nearness of You" (Norah Jones), "Everything" (Michael Buble), "At Last" (Etta James), "Unchained Melody" (Righteous Brothers).
A quote I live by: "Be the change you want to see in the world." – Mahatma Gandhi
On being a wedding DJ: "I think music is one of the very few things in life that is instantly gratifying. When I hear a song I love, I am immediately uplifted. It also brings people together in ways that other mediums cannot. People often dance with complete strangers and build a relationship from there. That alone makes music an incredibly powerful medium, especially for a wedding, and I enjoy being able to work within it."
