Back in May 2015 I started DJing full time. Those first few months were great, finding my way into self employment. But it also was a summer of anticipation as I was training to run my first Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon in August of that year.

The race, which takes place in Luluemon’s birthplace, Vancouver, was an amazing experience. I also admired the DJs that were spinning in the Seawheeze store and other areas of the pre-race events.

A few months later, I was extremely lucky enough to return to Vancouver to DJ Lululemon’s Leadership Conference. In the summers that followed, I have returned to run Seawheeze with the hopes each year to DJ at the event.

Well this was the year and the day was August 16, 2019.

It was a proud moment for me. I’ve had the privilege to DJ some cool events for Lululemon, including a store opening in Palm Springs and the recent Lululemon San Diego 10k kick off event. ⁠

But DJing just one element of the brands annual Seawheeze (half marathon) weekend in Vancouver was on my bucket list. Well I can check that off. ⁠

This particular event, was the exclusive shopping experience for the runners, the Seawheeze Store.⁠

Aside from Black Friday, this has to be the single biggest shopping day for Lululemon. It’s arguably the most important “store” they set-up for the year . . . And I got to set the tone. I can't wait to see what experience will top this!⁠

Here’s a look at the 4-hour setlist I played for the thousands of runners that came through that morning.

One of the best ways to relieve oneself after a long day of “conferencing,” is to get out on the dance floor. I had the opportunity to DJ the closing party at RISE, A Women’s Event, which took place at Eastlake Church.

It was a short session, but filled with non-stop dance hits. Here’s a look at the setlist.

I was reunited with an intern of mine. We had not seen each other in more than 10 years!
