Hello Everyone and welcome to DJ Modern Maestro! 2017 is going to be a BIG YEAR for our growing little business and we have A LOT of new equipment and exciting services to provide. Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
I was born in Santa Rosa, CA and raised in Sebastopol and West Sonoma County. I have traveled to the East Coast, Hawaii, Mexico and Central America, but will always call Sonoma County home. I LOVE IT HERE. I am blessed to be doing what I Love in the most beautiful and breathtaking places in America, possibly the world!
I got my start with music in 1985 ~ popping, locking and spinning on my back until my late 20's. I always had a passion for dancing and music and began collecting vinyl records at a young age after taking break dance classes at the Sebastopol Community Center.
I collected records from 1985 on and also enjoyed having a Juke Box in the house growing up. So really, I started DJ'ing and selecting records as a child in my own home as a kid! The Juke Box was filled with tracks by Jimi Hendrix, Charlie Daniels, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Beastie Boys, Elvis, Rolling Stones, Jan and Dean, Madonna, Weird Al Yankovich and many more... (thanks to great parents)
Today, I pride myself on having an ear for all types of music, but my true roots are grounded (but not limited to) American Black roots music including Jazz, Swing, Soul, R&B, Funk and Hip-Hop. However, being born in 1978 gave me a huge respect and a deep love (that continues today) for the pop and electronic music and culture of the 1980's and Rock and Roll.
In 2009, I graduated with a teaching credential in Special Education and continued my work with kids with learning disabilities, Autism, and Emotional needs until 2016. After 15 years of teaching, I decided to follow my true calling and put all my chips into this DJ/music business! I have a wonderful 5-year-old son named Finnegan and work hard everyday to feed his Lego habit.
In 2015, I met my fiance Ramaz (my biggest supporter and fan) and now have a new partner in life and in business. She is your photo booth attendant so be VERY Nice to her!
I am excited to build this DJ Modern Maestro business with her and my great North Bay community and look very forward to helping create amazing music memories for you!
