In 2001 I began a high school co-op at the now defunct Dr. Disc Records in downtown London, On. It was there that I was exposed to a world of music, DJing and something that would develop beyond a passion into an obsession. I knew then that I would do whatever it took to make this not just a major part of my life, but something that would eventually define me.
In the following years I finished up high school at Laurier SS and graduated from Fanshawe College, all the while working night clubs and parties in and around London, On. During that time I was so grateful to have the opportunity to play at now closed clubs such as GTs, Jim Bobs, The Drink, Phoenix, Tap House, Thorny Devil and more, doing what I love to do so dearly.
Fast forward ten years of working a full time day job and growing what had become my DJ business, I was finally able to say goodbye to my cubicle in 2016 and move full force in owning and operating DJ Alpha Productions full time. Over the course of the adventure, I was so fortunate to have some amazing experiences and even pick up a couple of awards (for the list, click here). I humbly remember my beginnings of being turned down and overlooked as a DJ, to now proudly heading a team of 30 DJs & staff. I’ve experienced amazing opportunities such as DJing unforgettable events at London’s very own Rock The Park, opening for some artists I could have only ever wished to DJ for (for a full list click here), DJing at venues such as Budweiser Gardens and the London Music Hall, as well as live mix shows on 102.3 Jack FM, 103.1 Fresh FM and 106.9 The X. I’ve also been blessed to be flown to amazing locations as New York, Las Vegas, California and Virginia by some pretty awesome people to DJ weddings, in addition to proudly representing Canada in Las Vegas at the 2015 & 2017 DJ Takeover, as well as growing our business to nearly 1,000 events annually.
I bring the same approach to all my performances; “do it with passion or not at all”. Every single time someone trusts me to step behind the decks at their event, no matter the size, I feel filled with gratitude and so thankful that to be able to live my dream.
