In 2000 I started Djing after being introduced to the manager of a local Nightclub by a friend. My friend and the Manager started to train me how to DJ and how to work a crowd. It was then that I knew that this was it for me, not a hobby but a way of life!

In the following years I finished up a graduate certificate in Media Fundamentals at Lambton College. It was during this time at Lambton that I caught the DJ bug even more as I had a weekly radio show on campus radio, all while working at the now defunct Border Club in Sarnia.

Over the next 11 years I was honored to play in some of Sarnia’s best NightClubs such as Campbell St station, The Red Room, The Odyssey, Club 151, The Lazy Duck, 2XS and Dirty Jack Doyle’s.

In 2011 I made a hard decision to walk away from DJing to start my family and focus more on my career but I never stopped playing at home and keeping up with new music.  After realizing I had made a mistake most of the Nightclubs I had played at were closed and I now found myself without a place to play.

Fast forward to 2018 and a chance conversation with my old friend DJ Alpha! I had been discussing maybe starting out on my own but Dave made me an offer of his own. Dave has always been a fantastic, positive, supportive person in my life and suggested that he was looking for someone to take on events for him in Sarnia. Well naturally I jumped at the opportunity and I haven’t looked back since!

Music has always been a part of me thanks to my parents and my older brother. I was raised on bands such as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Eurythmics, Nirvana, Soundgarden and the list goes on.

It was a chance trip to visit my native homeland of Scotland that I fell in love with the Nightclub scene and music of House, Electronica and Big Room music! It filled my ears with amazing sounds and rhythmic beats! Just some of the acts I like are Avicii, Basement Jaxx, Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia, Benny Benassi, and the list goes on.

Through the years I have always maintained the same professionalism and love for music as when I started over 18 years ago.  My motto is if your going to play do it with passion and high energy or why bother at all! Looking forward to working to make your weddings and events amazing!
