I wanted to leave behind a dated ‘Mobile Disco’ world. Many Mobile DJs I knew were just not taking the craft of DJing itself forward. Many of them still could not even mix music properly and were not willing to learn.
I did not want this image of an old style Mobile Disco for myself or for Sphere Entertainments. I wanted to be a modern & stylish DJ, and push myself to be the best I could possibly be.
I went to school (yes there is such a thing as a DJ school) to brush up on old skills and learn new ones. I’m still learning new skills today and I intend to continue learning my art as long as I still love music and DJing.
Today I am a full time professional career DJ (yes there is such a thing as a full time DJ!!). I’m a member of 2 of the UKs largest DJ associations, The National Association of DJs (NADJ) & The South East DJ Association (SEDA). I have served on the committee of NADJ and give talks and lessons to other DJs on how to improve their DJ skills.
One of my proudest moments on this DJ journey of mine came in 2017. I was asked by the founder of the worlds largest DJ school if I would be an Ambassador for the school. I would be involved with the training of a new generation of up and coming DJs across the globe. I’ve realised that one of my passions is helping others to improve themselves, so I jumped at the chance. Here I had an opportunity to use my knowledge to help people who want to learn all about the Wedding DJ & Event DJ world. I’ve loved every minute of it and it’s also teaching me so much more than I ever thought I could know.
So more than 25 years after playing my first ‘gig’ off my parents kitchen table, I can say I have the best career in the world. I love my job! I love working with couples planning their wedding, helping them come up with ideas and putting them at ease. I love working with people planning all sorts of parties whether personal or corporate.
But most of all I love packing out the dance floor. Seeing people have fun and enjoying themselves, knowing I’ve helped take them to that place is hugely rewarding for me. I want to give you the best experience I possibly can.
Thank you for reading my story.
