Zackery Richard's Story
Well, hello there, I’m DJ Ocean! Seems to me, you have just clicked on my pretty face! Shall we get into some background about me? I think we shall!
So, music is a huge part of my life. I sing basically 75% of my day, most of the time subconsciously. It’s a habit. Besides that, I’ve sung in a bunch of different choirs and functions. Such as: live performances with music that I have produced and written, throughout my school years in choir, and my 10 years of being in the bright lights of a drama stage… Ah, yes. The stage. One of my absolute favorite places to be. Let’s talk about that… I joined drama around 10 years old, my first show was “School House Rock Jr.”, I was cast as Joe in that musical. I sang that cool song, “Conjunction Junction”. If you don’t know it, I’d look it up! It’s a really groovy song. After the last performance of that show, I fell in love with Theatre and performing. It became the only thing I thought about. I continued my passion for it all the way up until my senior year. I’ve done so many shows between then and now that I’ve completely lost count! Some of my favorite roles to play were: Cliff in “Cabaret”, Mr. Sowerberry in “Oliver!”, Tribe Member in “HAIR”, and Officer O’Hara in “Arsenic and Old Lace”.
Then, well, with all of the free time I had as a high school graduate, I needed to find me a job. I’ve always needed to be somewhere or do something that made me feel like I was making a difference. Fast food service wasn’t going to cut it. That’s when I found Harmon Entertainment. I applied and It was most definitely one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I love my job. It’s such a wonderful experience. It’s incredibly fulfilling seeing people smile on their big day, or even watching some kids go absolutely crazy at a school prom. There’s no other job that I’ve had that can even come close to compare. So, with that said, why me? Well, I’ll tell you what, If you are looking for someone to make one of the most important days of your life become one of the greatest, look no further. I will do everything in my power to make that happen. Even though I may be a fun and energetic guy, I’m also serious, hard-working, and trustworthy. I think I get a lot of that from my parents. My father runs a 7th generation farm… and if you know anything about being raised on a farm… there’s no escape from getting in that semi or fixing that combine, haha! With that being said, if you end up picking me to be part of your big day, I guarantee you won’t regret it.
Well, that’s all I have to say about me for now. You’ll most likely end up learning a little more about me and I hope to do the same with you! Thank you for clicking on my face and reading my little story! Hope to see you soon!
