Syracuse born and raised dXn has spent the majority of his 3 decade career working in the CNY music community. Starting as a musician in his teen years, the early 90’s afforded him the opportunity to book the legendary Armory Square venue Styleen’s Rhythm Palace before moving on to stints at Planet 505, Bridge Street Music Hall and the legendary Lost Horizon.
Having grown up in Syracuse’s legendary underground scene, it is no surprise that he was also part of the team that presented Hellfest, (at the time the biggest alcohol free festival in the US) in the early 2000s before finding his way into radio in 2003. dXn joined the 95X team in 2012 and launched Locals Only, an on air show featuring bands from in and around the Syracuse area that has spawned a daily feature, a monthly live music series and a festival.
Having grown up predominantly on the south west side of Syracuse, dXn spent a lot of time at the Boys & Girls Club on Hamilton St as a youth and now leads the charge in 95X’s annual Toys For Tots program that provides toys to the children enrolled in the Boys & Girls Club program across Syracuse.
An animal lover from an early age, dXn championed a program called 95X CARES (Community Animal Rescue Effort) in early 2019. A two pronged program that is on air and also a video feature, finds forever homes for shelter animals here in our 315 community.
In 2019 dXn was inducted into the Syracuse Area Music Awards (aka The SAMMYS) for his contributions to the music and arts community in the CNY area. He has also won SAMMYS for Best Rock Album and Best Music Series.
On a personal note, dXn’s favorite artists are Silversun Pickups, Deftones and Lady Gaga. He enjoys travelling, exploring exotic cuisine, getting tattooed and occasional game of Milk Pants.
