Kicking off the 2017 San Diego Asian Film Festival Season

It does not matter if it's a wedding or a food and film event (as shown here). I'm all about creating the right vibe for the right moment.

DJing this years Chew The Scene, which took place at Brick in Liberty Station, as well as other Pacific Arts Movement events during its 2017 San Diego Asian Film Festival season, always calls for that. It's not about getting people to dance (although a few did toward the end of the night), but providing the right beats, for the right moments at the right volume at the right time. That's what enables others to enjoy the atmosphere they are in.

During the set a woman came up and complimented how much she enjoyed the music. I jokingly asked if it was better than last year, to which she replied, "yes."

I was the DJ last year ... but hey, I'm always happy to outdo myself.
