Meet Your DJ
In college, I became obsessed with the turntables. I formed my first band with my guitar-playing brother, Zach, where I scratched, rapped and produced albums while touring in a 6-piece band.
I still produce and perform my own music under the name, OHNOKHAN.
I created Dancin' Shoes in 2011 with the goal of bringing a higher quality DJ experience to Colorado. I've been an artsy person all my life, so lighting was a natural progression for me in creating
a heightened atmosphere.
I am an audio engineer and music producer by day.
For over 10 years, I have recorded and mixed everything from jazz and rock to hip-hop and pop, punk to voice overs and more at CCM Recording Studios.
In my free time, I enjoy tackling DIY projects, seeing live music and comedy shows,
drinking Old Fashioneds, and hiking with my dog, Misha.
My background in music started at an early age with piano lessons and singing in choirs. I pursued a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and earned my Master's in 2019. I taught music in schools for nearly a decade before becoming a full-time DJ.
In recent years, I discovered my love for bass music and a desire to understand this new world of electronic music.
As a DJ, I love being able to craft sets with a wide variety of genres while incorporating my unique perspective as a classically trained musician and vocalist. I prefer hip-hop, pop, dance classics and 80s-90s music most. I also love EDM. I look to blend these genres into my sets, paired with my client's requests, of course :-)
Years of running my own concerts (audio engineering, public speaking, people-herding, etc.) has helped me acquire the dynamic skills to rock weddings and private events. No matter the party, I can entertain 8-to-88 year-olds!
In my spare time, I love seeing live music and DJs, eating sushi and cuddling my cats,
Donny and Cleo.
... (my mom said), “today I’m going to teach you the 4 things all women are looking for in a man... how to dress, how to dance, how to cook and how to listen.“ She then took me by my little hands and began to teach me how to dance. That experience remains as one of my fondest memories as a young boy.
It was truly magical.
Music and dance has been a part of my life ever since.
As a wedding DJ I always feel honored to share such an amazing day with my clients and their friends and family.
It brings me great joy to add to the magic and excitement of such a special day. I take great care in delivering the kind of experience my clients want to have and love seeing their smiles while they dance the night away.
After 15 years of DJing weddings, I still get excited about every wedding I perform at and pour my heart and soul into my performance.
In my free time, I enjoy producing my own music and dancing, of course!
