What does “Professional Emcee” mean to you?
Bringing an unparalleled energy and excitement to every event without being cheesy, fake, or hokey. It’s an energy that guests can feel because it is a genuine excitement and passion for entertaining, rather than an act for the evening. The Professional Emcee is constantly on the lookout for ways to keep guests as energized and excited as he is to be a part of your event.
Why do you do what you do?
Ever since I got my first taste of performing in front of crowds over a decade ago, I have proudly proclaimed that “I could drop dead with a microphone in my hand and I will die a happy man with a smile on my face.” There is nothing that I love more than to bring joy to others and leave them with lasting memories and thoughts of, “wow, that was something else.”
How do you feel about playing a major part in a ” Life -Changing” event?
I thrive and live for being an entertainer on a big stage. I have performed in front of crowds as large as 20,000, but I honestly can’t think of a bigger stage than someone’s most special day. To me, there really is nothing better than taking such an important day and making it better than my clients’ could have imagined it. That having been said, I love the opportunity and ability to work with my clients to bring their visions to life. It is their day, and I strive to help them live it to its fullest.
Is it difficult to make each event you do unique to ones personality?
It is not so much ‘difficult’ as it is ‘involved.’ It requires a great deal of communication, and immersion into my clients’ interests. I work to take my clients’ distinct and unique tastes and build them into an event using my experiences in the performance and entertainment industry. I relish a challenge of taking a song or idea that is little known or little used and making it work in an event. It’s little personal touches like that that separate the run of the mill from the extraordinary; the cookie cutter from the fully custom.
