Whether it was growing up listening to rock music with my dad, playing a pick-up basketball game at the local park, cruising around town jamming with friends or working out, I’ve always loved being active and around music.
I started out doing radio in college and can now be heard on Springfield’s #1 Hit Music Station 103.7 WDBR‘s Morning Show with DJ Blake. An avid fan of fitness, I found CrossFit in 2008 and fell in love with everything about it. What do you do when WOD’ing? You listen to music! They go hand in hand. I quickly nominated myself the official emcee/dj at my local box, CrossFit Instinct, by making mixes for class. As CrossFit events started happening in the central Illinois area I began getting asked to emcee/dj events. I had found my passion. To “work” in this environment, meet the amazing people who put on these events, and most importantly the athletes who compete, is what I love to do. I pride myself on keeping the crowd entertained, full of excitement and well informed of any information you need to get across.
Let me help you run your event smoothly so you can sit back and enjoy yourself!
I look forward to working with you.
