For this Meet the Hosts series, each team member answered a few questions about themselves and their time with DJ Trivia Nevada. Elgin began hosting DJ Trivia in February of 2015. Elgin currently hosts Sundays (5-7pm) at Shim’s Surplus and Wednesdays at The 395 (starting June 2).
What do you love about hosting DJ Trivia?
- I love the players. Especially how excited they get while playing. I love laughter during the games. We really do have a blast at DJ Trivia.
What do you love to do when you aren’t hosting?
- Spending time with my dogs, BBQ-ing, playing video games, and making funny sound effects for the games.
What is something you’ve learned about yourself since joining the DJ Trivia Nevada family?
- I have had to learn to pull myself into a fun mood even if things aren’t always working right.
What is your favorite DJ Trivia memory?
Oh man. . . After 6 years we’ve had so many. I know watching a team of 1 (Rodents of Unusual Size) win first place 9 times against big teams was pretty awesome. The rare time a team gets a perfect score has been fun. I’d say maybe the best memories are when players come up after the show to tell me how much they enjoyed what I did for them.
From Vickie’s View…
Elgin was a family friend that we knew for probably five years before hiring him as a host. He definitely brings his own personality to his games!
He brought with him a variety of skills and experiences that make him a successful host. He has worked in a variety of fields from sales to bartending to standup comedy. All of those things come together to make hosting a really natural fit.
I really appreciate his dedication and his love for the game, his players, and the company as a whole.
