J.J. began to learn art of DJing in 2008 with the help of his cousin, one of the most hardest working, prominent and skillfully talented DJs in the Las Vegas club scene, DJ Slip.
DJing for J.J. was a bedroom hobby where his two turntables and mixer never left his room. In his car, J.J. put on repeat DJ Slip's "Save the DJ, Save the World" Mixtape to learn how to cut songs together. Inspired by Power 106's radio DJ's, J.J. always woke up to the sounds Big Boy in the Morning show DJ, DJ E-Man. J.J. would write down in order every song E-Man would play, and try to learn his style of mixing by copying his set. All of J.J.'s practice would soon come to use when the Great Recession hit home.
In 2009 J.J.'s full time position at America's Funniest Home Videos was eliminated putting
J.J. in a perfect position to put his practice to the test and actually go out and DJ for income.
One free gig lead to another and in some gigs he worked for tips. In the months ahead, J.J. developed his style of mixing and his ability to "read a crowd." Utilizing these two abilities were his formula to always keep the crowd wanting more. The satisfaction of his clients not only led him to his next gig, but paved a way for J.J. to make a living off of what he loves to do.
The income from gigs paid his bills, put food on his table,and even put gas in his 21 gallon truck. DJing has been J.J.'s main source of work since 2009 and since then he has worked for only the clients who hire him.
J.J. has performed all over the South Western United States and in Europe. His ability to electrify a crowd has taken him to Madrid, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and all over Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
