OG RalphieD is a graduate of the 2019 DJ training program in Portugal. He is co-founder, alongside wife Dawn, of Ecstatic Dance Las Vegas. Together, this pair of avid dancers DJ most events. EDLV is a weekly dance, Sundays at 10am.
I build sets that include rock, jazz, tribal, tech and house genres.
The mix is designed to take the dancers on a journey. Properly assembled, the path we will follow is a natural progression, rising and subsiding, repeatedly.
We strive to create a sacred space for all to enjoy at every dance, carefully following the tenets of Ecstatic Dance International
I am a native San Franciscan. I live today in Las Vegas.
I enjoyed a successful Silicon Valley career as an executive and investor in high tech companies in the medical, pharma, and software fields.
In 1996, I was diagnosed with Early Onset Parkinson's Disease. My reaction was to start a new life as a business consultant and investor.
In 2000, I joined the Keiretsu Forum, a startup-oriented investor consortium.
I mentored teen entrepreneurs at Oakland High for 4 years, thrilled to see them graduate and go on to successful careers. I am very proud of them all.
I became a Ecstatic Dance DJ in 2019 at age 65. I have enjoyed every minute of this new life. Together with Dawn (also a DJ), we operate the local Ecstatic Dance - Las Vegas.
