Born and raised in Toronto, Justin was inspired by the great “Live To Air” radio DJs before he was old enough to get into a club. His first live event as a DJ was a high school dance at age 15, and he was hooked ever since.

For the past 13 years his DJ career has crossed from clubs and lounges to special events and weddings. He loves to spin throwback tunes from his High School & College days, and he is also a huge fan of Funk & Disco music. His true passion is gathering and mixing the hottest Top40 songs available for an appreciative crowd, and blending it all together on his turntables.

“Justin truly listened to our needs and helped us develop our playlist. We had folks from another wedding coming to our party because of the fabulous DJ. I can’t thank you enough for adding that touch to our special day!” – Sarah & JJ
