I’ve been running Ridiculous Entertainment as my main business for 9 years. I picked up DJing as a hobby when I was in high school, falling in love with hip-hop and learning to scratch records.  Throughout my college years, I DJed tons of parties.  I now also work in live audio engineering, record albums in my home studio, play in bands, and produce stage shows with the Baltimore Rock Opera Society (BROS). Even with this range of interests, DJing weddings and private parties has been my main career path for a long time now and I still really enjoy it!
