No two people and no two events are the same. Helping clients customize their special occasion by having them lay out their vision and working together to create the event of their dreams is something that gives me great joy. Being able to execute a couple’s dream wedding or someone’s special occasion is a very gratifying feeling.” — DJ Dan
Dan’s journey in the DJ field started in the Silicon Valley in 1992 at San Jose. He helped manage and DJ at Live, a 40,000 square foot sports bar and nightclub with a very diverse clientele. It was the first time Dan got to fuse his love of sports and music together to create a unique synergy by interacting with clients during sporting events and creating a fun and festive atmosphere. It was in situations like these that Dan honed his skills as an emcee, specializing in unique, interactive corporate parties for many of the major companies in Silicon Valley, including Apple, IBM, Hewlett Packard, Intel, and Sun Microsystems. Dan also had the privilege of creating interactive, sports-based promotions with the San Francisco 49ers, San Jose Sharks, and Golden State Warriors.
Upon graduating from San Jose State University, Dan was given the opportunity to utilize his unique abilities at Phoenix Live at the Arizona Center, serving as the Entertainment Director from 1995 to 1998. During that time, he helped coordinate major corporate events for clients such as Major League Baseball, Phoenix Coyotes, and ESPN and Disney in conjunction with Super Bowl XXX. More importantly, Dan’s skill level evolved greatly in music formatting, reading the crowd on a dance floor, and hiring and training several young DJs who would become the best club DJ’s in Arizona.
While taking a hiatus from nightclub management, Dan completed graduate studies in Secondary Education from ASU and served for 12 years as a Social Studies teacher and football and baseball coach. While teaching at Washington High School for 10 of those years, Dan also served as the announcer for all sporting events, and the MC at several other school events.
Life has come full circle, where Dan now serves as a full time DJ and MC. A veteran of over 900 weddings and corporate parties, Dan specializes in collaborating with clients and vendors to create a custom, joyous and memorable experience for a variety of special occasions. Dan is the father of two beautiful girls, and he realizes the importance of having only one opportunity to create a memorable wedding experience.
