WEDDING • PRIVATE • CORPORATE
After 16+ years in the event industry as a Premium DJ, 650+ weddings and 500+ private events, I can say with 100% certainty that my passion and purpose is to elevate the experience for my family, friends and clients. Without a doubt I was born for this role.
I'm fascinated by the client experience. More importantly, how can it be perfected? How can I consistently and authentically design memorable moments for my clients? As a Premium DJ, Host, Emcee and one of the Midwest’s only Event Experience Consultants, my expansive clientele includes corporate hospitality groups, real estate agencies, wealth advisers, performance coaches, and wedding/event professionals all across the Midwest.
I continue to shape my reputation for being an intangibility expert. I pride myself on teaching others how to sell an experience, not a product.
My current endeavors include: Strategic Production Partner at Montgomery Companies and host of The Summit; co-founder of Iowa’s only Wedding Experience; featured speaker at Elevate Leadership University; founder of “Capture the Essence” wedding workshop; co-founder of Anne & Ellis Events; exclusive DJ, Host and Emcee for Lululemon, Iowa City; In-House DJ for Ashton Hill, Cedar Rapids and Galena; No Foot Too Small Foundation and A Night To Shine - Tim Tebow Foundation.
I thrive on keeping busy in my professional world but my private life has a much deeper meaning. I married my high school sweetheart, Melissa, eight years ago. I'm also a proud father of six-year-old twin toddlers, Iylah and Asher.

I'm very honest and up-front in saying that my pricing will be within the top tier based on most Premium DJs in the area. I completely understand and respect that everyone has a budget they are trying stick with. Most clients end up spending right around the $2600.00 mark on my Premium DJ Services. That being said, I try to help any potential client gain a better perspective on the importance of not only hiring someone to play a role as a "DJ" - (aka someone who simply plays music) but also having that same person actively assist with the flow of the reception and truly becoming integrated within your event. If you feel like we would be a great fit, I'd love the opportunity to chat!
