PROFESSIONAL SUMMARY


Anchored by a lifelong interest in music and the arts, my passion for live entertainment is earmarked by my first paid event at age 10: sound engineer at a 200-person wedding.  During my formative years I began community-level acting, multiple weekly musical performances, and took on audio engineering as a fulltime hobby.  Throughout teenage and adult life I continue to grow my knowledge base of stage work and entertainment programming, with a heavy emphasis on live vocal application and event-specific music selection.  In addition to jockeying thousands of events and logging countless hours as an on-site professional, I currently write, produce, and host multiple weekly live trivia programs at three well-established South Sound venues.  Armed with a rock-solid performance history and an adaptable personality, I specialize in delivering stellar event entertainment for discerning clientele.

PERSONAL SUMMARY


Being a fulltime father of five children, I know the responsibilities and demands associated with controlling large and, at times, difficult crowds.  Many of my personal interests are directly applicable to my professional life, such as: social psychology, public address delivery, current and past music trends, and audio equipment operability.  Additionally, I have been an actively performing multi-instrumentalist for 20+ years.  Public broadcast messaging (speaking into a microphone in front of large crowds) is something that has fascinated me since childhood and I aspire to address stadium-sized crowds.  Entertainment is a foundational element of my life and resides at the core of who I am.
