Music is one of the key elements of true Celebration.
I Make Events Successful
Growing up in The Grand Canyon National Park influenced Bear in many ways. It gave him a very unique world view, but also a unique vision of music and sound. How is this? By putting him in touch with the music and ceremonies of multiple Native American tribes, and visitors from every corner of the globe on a daily basis.

I don’t consider myself a Mobile DJ. As a matter of fact I don’t consider myself to be a DJ at all. I am a Professional Record Selector with a deep understanding and passion for music, and an understanding of how to make some of the most important events in people’s lives successful and full of great memories.
I Am A Leader
Whether it is leading a team of employees as a Team Lead, Supervisor, Manager, or even a group of hikers as a guide, I am a leader. I don’t just say that either. I have years of experience and training in Leadership strategies and fundamentals.This includes training I received as a member and recipient of a Full Ride Academic and Leadership Scholarship as part of the Arizona State University Leardership Scholarship Program. I have held numerous positions at different companies in the role of Management and Leadership. I am humbled and motivated when I know the success of others depends on me.
I currently manage a team of DJs, Photographers, and Event Professionals as the Wedding & Events Manager and Head DJ for Peaks Pro Event Services. I am not the type of guy who just stands behind the decks and pushes play. I expect more from every event or company I am a part of.
