Freedom Conservative Party
I’ve been a mobile professional music entertainer, more traditionally known as a DJ, for 23 years, though I no longer feel the two letters really do justice to the type of services I offer and the level of detail and attention I bring to an event, nor the two decades of experience from thousands of various events.
I’m also a certified wedding planner and a college graduate of radio and television broadcasting. I’ll be 42 this year.
In 2008, I started full time with my business, TJ the DJ, until rebranding this January to Soundman Music, in hopes of expending my staff and training additional entertainers. I also own Memory Lane Booths, which I started in 2011 and is Red Deer’s longest operating photo booth business.
I, like many others, have spent the past few election cycles unhappy with the past governments and their corruption, lack of accountability, lack of responsibility for bad choices and overall mis-management of our province.
I decided to be the change I wanted to see, and no longer sit around just complaining about it. I looked for a party whose platform spoke to me the most.
In my business, compromise, open-mindedness, problem solving and creativity are all necessary.
A wedding is two different families, strangers to each other, coming together for a couple. Politics is very similar.
We have opposing parties and the people who vote for them. My job is to best represent the wishes of the couple and make their dreams come true in the best way possible. As an MLA, I believe the same principle applies.
I need to find compromises among the people in my riding, and best represent them in the legislature for the benefit of the province.
