2013 marks the 7th year for the Pathfinder of West Virginia’s “Motown Throwdown”.  Every year around Halloween, Pathfinder blocks off High Street, the main street on WVU’s campus and throws a massive party.  The park team from 7 Springs Resort trucks in snow and builds ramps for a ski and snowboard competition.  No party would be complete without amazing music so in addition to my DJing, past musical guests include Mix Master Mike and Phife Dawg from A Tribe Called Quest.  (video HERE)  This year’s throwdown was big as ever and I decided to hit the record button.

Extra Credit Podcast


(cue theme music…) It’s time for another episode of the EXTRA CREDIT podcast!  In Episode 6 I chop it up with Portland-based DJ and producer for the Lifesavas, Rev Shines.  Rev is one of the cats keeping good music alive in Portland and he’s spreading good music all over the world with the Lifesavas.  Sneakers, making beats with Questlove, records, dressing up like KISS and using CD burners on stage and more.


Also, if you need some DJ gear, sound, lights, whatever, visit our podcast sponsor, AGI Pro DJ, and use the code EXTRACREDIT when you check out.  You’ll save some loot while supporting a DJ-based company!

Happy New Year to everyone!  I don’t know what you have planned for this year but I hope you make it all happen.  I’ve got tons planned and it’s already starting to come to fruition.  I’ll be sending out the first in a new mix series called “Footnotes” with my next email blast so look for that.  It’s a Hip-Hop mix series with an educational aspect and it’s super fun.  Trust me, you’re going to love it.  Speaking of good stuff to listen to…

Mud on the Mountain – 7 Springs – 11.3.2012



Modern Event Solutions


Getting married?  Having a private function or a corporate event?  Check out the site for my special events company, Modern Event Solutions and LIKE us on Facebook.



If you haven’t watched my awesome political campaign video, do it now!



On November 3rd, 7 Springs hosted another Mud on the Mountain obstacle course race and it was my job to get everyone hyped up at the starting line.  This race I had my work cut out for me because a few days before, a freak blizzard dumped 26 inches of snow on the resort.  I was worried the race would be cancelled but then I remembered that everyone who signed up is insane and almost 3,000 people ran the course.  Despite freezing conditions everyone was in high spirits and you would’ve thought it was 80 degrees outside.
