After a decade of not practicing, I have decided that this year I'm going to relearn how to play the guitar.

If you follow the link, you'll hear a 60-minute mix I made on Saturday night that was dedicated to the Super Bowl. Listeners have told me "it was great" and "I caught myself dancing a few times". Now I need you to hear it too!

As a wedding DJ, I've had many conversations in the past with industry experts and other vendors about different hacks to help couples get the most out of their wedding day. So I decided to start a podcast to highlight those hacks. Everyone is welcome to listen on iTunes or Stitcher Radio or watch it on YouTube. If you're a vendor or expert, or just discovered a new tip and looking to get in on this conversation I'll be having on the show please feel free to reach out to me.

Story
Introduction
I began my wondrous journey in August 2004 by enlisting in the Marine Corps. This opportunity led me to brief stays in Okinawa, Japan and Camp Pendleton, California.  During that time, it was a privilege to have contributed to the success in Operation Iraqi Freedom and the Global War on Terrorism.  I was honorably discharged from the Marines in 2008.

In 2013, I came to the realization that it was necessary to further my education.  I am proud to say that I'm currently enrolled at Southeast Community College and run my own entertainment and web development company, Amplified Sessions, located in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Survived the USMC Recruit Depot, Iraq & high school all in 1 decade.
