His first event was in college when his roommates decided to throw a house party. Jake likes to do everything at 100%, so naturally, he went and bought a bunch of equipment he didn’t know how to work. After an epic night, Jake knew this was something he was ready to pursue. He was hooked on buying new gear and building his library to make him more versatile in the event industry. Once his friends began graduating and getting married, Jake started DJing their weddings. He knew then what he wanted his career to be.
Jake graduated from the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor with a BA in History (which is super important as a DJ) and a minor in Christian Studies. Now, Jake is a full-time DJ and Plano resident. He is recently married, and lives by the motto “happy wife, happy life.” Jake enjoys soft pretzels from Target, Netflix with bae, dog parks, chicken mini’s, and Instagramming pictures of his dog Barli.
Jake loves to create an atmosphere that allows you and your guest to have the experience of a lifetime. He is sincere, true, and dedicated. Jake describes himself as a natural speaking MC; in other words, he rarely uses clichés (i.e.: at this time, can I have your attention please, please put your hands together, etc). Instead, he creates an atmosphere where he doesn’t tell your guest’s what to do; he makes it to where they want to be a part of the evening.
What was the first concert you attended?
The Newsboys at Six Flags Over Texas (don’t judge)
What’s your best attribute?
My friends would say dependable. No matter what the circumstance may be, I will always keep my word, and do whatever it takes!
Before today, what’s your favorite moment ever as a DJ?
When my brother got engaged, and asked me not only to be his best man, but his DJ/MC as well. It was an incredible honor, and incredibly fun to be such a vital role on his big day. Not to mention, my entire family was there to see me in my element!
