Producer – Vice-President
My purpose in life is to construct authentic pieces that will define the eternal truth of life and art. The teachings, the lessons and the challenges I have encountered never separated me from my goals or from the adventure that art permits. In college, every project and accomplishment, from festivals, radio shows, film and television, to being an adjunct and peer educator, pursued new innovative ideas to express myself within the realm of entertainment and education. For the past five years at Fairleigh Dickinson University, I have been the Jack-of-all-trades. I have absorbed the skillfulness of a DJ for a number of social and charity events, a producer for traditional and non-traditional festivals, such as fashion shows, open mic nights and galas and editor for avant-garde performances in New York City. In addition to a jam-packed full-time honors workload, a five yearlong internship at Farleigh Dickinson Universities’ radio station, WFDU 89.1FM, developed my skills as a radio persona. I have worked on press releases, collaborated with several disco jockeys on weekly shows and operated radio equipment for my own r&b/blues show, Johnny J’s Jivin’ Jukebox Jams.
