Chris knows a little something about music, about being an artist and a performer. As a teen growing up in the mid 80’s, he taught himself the art of djing, beat matching and mixing records at a time when two turntables and vinyl were king. With hard work and dedication Chris developed an amazing twelve year career as a professional dj and entertainer, playing everything from pop, rock, alternative, hip-hop, reggae, R&B and dance music.
Recognizing a need in the dj community, Chris went on to create a successful website business promoting up and coming local and national dj’s. His unique vision provided a platform for dj’s to showcase their skills by streaming their music mixes and hosting live mix shows on what was one of the first online radio stations of its kind at the time. At its peak, his online radio station achieved one million unique listeners per month, giving relatively unknown yet very talented dj’s an opportunity to be seen and heard.
Chris holds a degree in computer science, having worked in various technology roles over the past twenty years, managing and delivering million dollar initiatives, always with a focus on service delivery and customer satisfaction.
In the last nine years, he has dedicated his personal time to studying and applying core concepts and techniques in digital audio recording, mixing and mastering. He’s spent the last six years building his professional recording studio, capable of producing amazing results that meet today’s commercial music and audio standards.
During Chris’ downtime, he enjoys Jersey City living and cycling with his loving wife Caroline, supporting the local music scene, hitting up concerts, writing, arranging, singing and producing his own music while collaborating online with other musicians across the country.
