Director / DJ
I have been DJing for almost 25 years and came to Canada in 1999 from Northern Ireland to pursue this dream. I began DJing in the 90s club scene in the UK, have played across Canada at various clubs and festivals and always try to remain on top of new technology. I am a student of the art of DJing and am always learning new ways to mix. I care about the creative process in both how music sounds and how it is presented. I launched Scottify Events in 2017 to supplement my income at Virgin Radio / CHUM 104.5 so that my wife could be at home with our new born daughter. Since then, the business has grown rapidly due to the quality of my services, the warm reviews I get from clients and my passion to work hard. I was the 2018 Winner of the DJ Category for Toronto by the International Wedding Awards. Now with 2 daughters, I hope that the continued success of Scottify Events will allow me to focus on the company full time in 2020 as we roll out new and innovative services for our clients.
DJ / MC
At a very young age, I knew I wanted to be involved in the entertainment industry. When I was just 13 years old my parents bought me 2 turntables and a microphone that would shape me into the DJ I am today. Within 2 years I was hosting and performing at parties all across Toronto.
Soon after my graduation, I was making appearances and performing in some of Toronto’s hottest nightclubs. This soon lead to opportunities to travel and perform in elite venues across the country. To date, I've performed in multiple nationwide concert tours with the likes of: Snoop Dogg, Fabolous, Pusha-T, French Montana, Big Sean and J.Cole. While touring, I was able to make connections with radio stations across the country, and then I got my start in my home town of Toronto.
In 2013, I went into radio full time and I've been working in front of the microphone and camera ever since. I've interviewed all the heavyweights in the music and entertainment business like Justin Timberlake, The Backstreet Boys, Shawn Mendes, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, Kevin Hart, Idris Elba and Ryan Reynolds just to name a few. You can listen to me during the week from 5-10pm and on weekends with DJ Starting From Scratch during the Saturday Night Hitmix on Virgin Radio.
