I first got my start working in the night club scene in 1997 under John McNese who currently hosts the Sunday Morning Radio Show for WBUL 98.1 (“The Bull”). I learned the basics of being a DJ from John, and began hosting his own dance sets and playing for the all night bar scene of the late 90’s in Lexington, KY.
From there I enlisted in the US Army in 1998 where I served in Heidelberg, Germany for three years as a Personnel Service Director. While in Germany, my unit found out I was a DJ… so guess who got asked to perform numerous military functions to include Award Ceremonies, Banquets, and Holiday Balls. Well I really didn't get asked… it was more like “You are going to be here at this place and this time because (insert event here) is going on.
My last year in Germany I was deployed to Kosovo and was the only serviceman that worked as a DJ for MWR on three different nights providing weekly entertainment for Country, and Top 40, as well as hosting karaoke. Towards the end of my deployment I began hosting a weekly radio show playing music and taking requests for the troops as a guest DJ on AFN Balkans. I would return back to Lexington, KY in 2001 and began working part time for a local DJ service, while also working as an Office Manager. That would continue into 2005 when I launched my first company 3D Entertainment.
Then in 2009, a transformation happened. I attended my first DJ Conference in Las Vegas. I found myself among entertainment professionals who were not simply DJs, making announcements and “pressing play”. They were skilled Masters of Ceremonies and Masters at creating magic at weddings. They invested time with their couples, learning more than just “the facts” and creating wedding experiences that told a story, both literally and figuratively. I quickly learned that with the right planning, the right preparation, and the right performer…wedding celebrations could be so much more! So I researched their methods, soaked in their enthusiasm and adapted it to fit my style. Even today, I am honored to still consider those entertainment industry leaders not only my mentors but also my personal friends.
