GET TO KNOW THE DJ

Q3: What is your child’s proudest accomplishment?
A: My son Xavier is currently happy about learning video editing.
Q4: What are your hobbies?
A: I’m a DJ. I’ve mixed music on-air, in nightclubs, at corporate events, and weddings around the United States. The ability to reach a large audience and move the crowd with music, is a dream come true.
Q5: What’s your favorite holiday?
A: Thanksgiving. Football and food. How can you beat that? Plus, my Dallas Cowboys play every year.
Q6: What shows do you record on the DVR?
A: I love John Oliver on HBO’s Last Week Tonight
Q7: What’s your favorite movie?
A: The Shawshank Redemption
Q8: Do you collect anything?
A: Music. I’ve been collecting bits and pieces like stitches in a tapestry that will never be completed. I think in my DJ library, I have just over 10,000 songs. I am constantly weeding out stuff I don’t need or use. It is my garden and I tend to it with great vigor.
Q9: Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
A: I am a professional extrovert. Meaning, if need be, you can hand me a microphone and I will entertain 10,000 people, no problem. As for my personal life, I can be a fly on the wall, never needing the spotlight. I can be alone and never be lonely.
Q10: Who was your favorite teacher in school and why?
A: Ms. Donna Smith taught English at Alisal High School and used an exercise of free writing that introduced me to my love of words.
