Throughout the past 16 years, music has helped shape me into the person I am today.
Having been raised by two Dominican parents, music was always present- whether it
was during long car rides or simply during day-to- day home life. This exposure enabled
me to acquire an ear for authentic, culturally rich music. At five years old I encountered
my first love- the piano. After that discovery, music was no longer just pleasurable
background noise. It became a science and a puzzle I couldn't help but give my all to try
It's commonly believed that children are a reflection of their parents, and in my case,
that expression is completely accurate. My father was the first DJ in our family, and as a
young adolescent I yearned for the opportunity to DJ just like him. The musical
experiences I had with him molded me to acquire the same love for music that he holds.
If there was one thing that my father taught me it was to strive to be the best in whatever
I do, not for the purpose of defeating others, but for myself. My mother, on the other
hand, raised me to be the altruistic, caring, and detail oriented man that I am today.
She taught me to never settle for anything less than the best version of myself, and that
mediocrity will not get me anywhere in life.
One of the quintessential moments in my life that lead me to pursue the art of DJing
occurred when I was just a young teenager and I accompanied my father to a wedding
where he was playing. I soon discovered that I was not only brought there to observe,
but also to DJ a portion of the reception. I was astonished that my father would give me
such a responsibility-perhaps he saw something in me that I still couldn't see at the
time. Although hesitant at the first, I could not miss the chance to make my dream a
reality. I embraced the challenge and loved every second of it. I discovered that DJing
wasn't merely the art of picking songs, but it was a complete science as well. I realized
that I had to learn to read the crowd, put myself in their place, and constantly adapt to
their needs maintain the excitement. My father seemed to know this was the right path
for me, and after that moment, I knew it as well.
Like the story says, the rest is history! Today I live out my passion as a DJ, determined
to master my craft with every event thrown my way.

Perfect is the perfect word to describe him.
Jesse has been amazing with us. We were a bit scared for the party and the songs because our wedding was mixing 2 different cultures (Spanish and French). But Jesse made it perfectly. Very nice, professional and just the best DJ ever.
Thank you so much.

My wedding was phenomenal thanks to the amazing performance our DJ gave. The mixes were on point and he managed to make our guests dance from the start of the music until the end of the event. He even managed the most unexpected guests to have a good time as well. I commend him for his professionalism and for making our event personalized.
