If you had to give yourself a "DJ Name" what would it be? DJ G
One little known fact about you? When I was a kid, I used to have my hair to my knees and I was blond.
What is your all-time favorite song? I'm a major music nerd so I don't have a favorite.
If you weren't a wedding DJ, what other career path could you see yourself in? I'm a music teacher as well as a musician. I'm also an actor. I'm already doing what I love and being a wedding DJ is a great addition to a varied artistic career. If I were to choose a career completely different from this area, it would be physics.
If you could be any particular singer or musician, who would you be? I'd say someone like Adele or Peggy Lee, maybe rock or jazz musician, and opera. My musical tastes are varied and those listed are areas that I think have some of the most originality and creative voices around.
What do you like to do in your spare time? Paint, draw, and read. My library card gets a lot of use. When I do have some downtime, I watch entirely too much tv and movies. The on demand option is a wonderful invention.
If your life was a song what would the title be? Organized Chaos and Eclectic Design
How would you describe your emcee style? I tend to be pretty centered and keep a good sense of humor about myself. It really depends on the read of the room and client. If I need to ramp it up a bit, I do or if there needs to be a calming factor, I'll go down that road.
What do you do to create that WOW factor at a wedding? Make sure to read the room, listen to the client, and anticipate some neat music options that maybe they didn't think of before but fit beautifully. I want this to be as stress free as possible for the bride and groom so they can enjoy their day!
Tell me about the best dance you've ever attended. The best dance I have attended was when I did one of my dj shadows. The dj I was observing kept the pace moving, lively, and was fully engaged with the party. It made for a fun experience and you could tell that people wanted to be there and dance. The music selection was varied and had a nice flow. A very neat event!
Favorite artist/group? Too many artists and groups to count. I'd say the genres I tend to gravitate towards are rock, alt. rock, indie, folk, jazz, blues, classical, and the occasional rap song but I am super picky about rap. There's just so much out there to enjoy.
