I am a third generation musician and come from a family of entertainers
In my spare time I am a bandleader, guitar player and actor. My father and grandmother were songwriters. My grandfather was a church choir leader and my mother sang in a choir for a number of years. I come from a long line of performers and with my unique background I can bring creativity to your event that will exceed your expectations.
I am a married father of two children
For those of you getting married and having a wedding and reception, I've been through the wedding and reception experience personally and know the many things we put together that helped our day flow smoothly. I also know the importance of connecting with the one you love, family and friends as I've been in your shoes.
I am a professionally trained Master of Ceremonies (MC), a Board Member with the Bay Area Chapter of the American Disc Jockey (DJ) Association along with other professional Master of Ceremonies (MC) and DJ group memberships
I have completed Audiomazing Love Story (www.audiomazinglovestory.com) course taught by Ron Ruth. I am one of only two Bay Area Masters of Ceremonies to complete this course. I now integrate audio from interviews with couples, like you, into love stories. When you choose my Audiomazing Love Story option your guests will amazed and their hearts will be moved as they hear your own words woven into your love story. I've even had event catering staff pause in amazement and say "wow" as they heard the couple's voices from interviews during my soundchecks.
I have also completed a Master of Ceremonies (MC) workshop taught by Mark and Rebecca Ferrell, who teach advanced skills workshops to MCs and DJs. Their workshops are renowned by well-known Masters of Ceremonies in the DJ Field. In 12 years of teaching workshops worldwide only 1,300 MCs/DJs have had the honor to participate.
Check out http://www.markferrell.com for more information. The local DJ association and professional groups serve as a forum to promote professional development in my field so I can bring you advanced skills and personalized service to your event. My involvement in Master of Ceremonies (MC) and DJ groups as well as being mentored by those with 20 to 30 years experience has enhanced my skills to so that I can better engage and entertain your guests. I also mentor those new to the MC/DJ profession so they can provide stellar and professional services to their clients as well.
I am a 20 year US Army Veteran
I promise not to march you into your reception unless it's your request. For a period of 20 years I was expected to be on-time, flexible and work with others to achieve organizational success. From time to time I had to think on my feet which still helps me stay prepared for challenges that arise all while I maintain a positive attitude. That dedication I learned early in my life is a part of who I'm today. I received numerous awards for excellence, but most important to me I made a difference in my community and served our nation.
My education includes a Master of Arts, in Communication Studies
I love being present with others and obtaining my degree allowed me to better connect with people and understand how my unique interpersonal communication can change interactions for the positive. My love of advanced communication education has helped me bring unique skills to get your guests engaged in your event and lower your stress level by ensuring you're well prepared for speeches and event transitions.
I had a lot of pressure to get things right the first time and have made a positive difference making people feel welcome which results in a great time for all. Well, I didn’t just write scripts, timelines and lead as a master of ceremonies, I also acted in church plays some that garnered audiences of 15,000 and played guitar and perform vocals. I’m comfortable in front of an audience and it seems I’m often sought after to provide speeches, function as an announcer and have performed voice overs supporting live productions.
I know how to make an event elegant and fun which keeps a party alive. I enjoy making an event special, wonderful and memorable.
