Music has certainly been a part of my life since the day I was born. My dad has always had a love of music and dance, and I certainly followed in those footsteps. He loved to crank the music and teach us all the words and 'air instruments' to go along with the songs. As I grew older, I loved to perform concerts for family members when they would visit for holidays. Eventually, I was even able to coax my sister and cousins into helping me with the performances.

When I entered high school, my passion for music continued as I helped with sound work for sporting events, special events, and concerts put on at the school. I also enjoyed helping my local church by installing a new sound system and helping with Sunday church services and holidays. I started announcing for sporting events when I was in 9th grade and continued to do so through my senior year.

I started my DJ-ing career after beginning college and buying a DJ-ing business in Hillsboro, ND. I truly enjoyed all the events I was able to do, including weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and benefits. I unfortunately had to give up DJ-ing once I began my full-time career after graduating from college. I have been blessed, however, to be asked to MC multiple events. I have truly enjoyed the preparation for these events and the events themselves.

I am also an ordained minister, which has provided me with the great opportunity of being a part of people's lives in a unique way. Prior to the big day, I meet with each couple and take the time to get to know them. I take a lot of pride in preparing them with tools, not only for their wedding day, but also for the rest of their lives together, to ensure a marriage filled with love and joy.

Dave DJ'ed my sister's wedding, and I had never seen a DJ do such a great job from start to finish at a wedding reception. His attention to detail and timeliness is superb, and I can see that extends throughout his entire company. Needless to say, my wife and I asked him to do our wedding, which went beyond what we were expecting. I am excited to help couples on their very special day, whether it is officiating, DJ-ing, or both.

Thank you for reading my biography. I look forward to meeting you and working with you on your big day!
