My brother is a popular DJ.
We are about 15 years apart, and I have always looked up to him.
He is technically my step brother, but we never call each other that. He is my brother, and has been looking out for me from the day I was born. When I was a toddler, our parents gifted him a DJ set, and he began practicing. He got so good that he started doing gigs like kids parties. He’d get paid for his work, and save the money for more gear. When I was 10, he was already doing professional gigs in town. He introduced me officially to being a DJ, and would teach me a few things about his world. In high school, I’d DJ a bit, but I knew I wanted a different career. So, after graduating, I went to a local community college and trained to be a HVAC tech. I enjoyed being a DJ and learning from my brother, but it was more of a hobby. We were talking one day about my future and I told him I liked being a DJ but it wasn’t what I wanted to do with my life. My brother has always been supportive and even took me to apply for the HVAC course. I was in school for a year, got certified, and found a job with a local HVAC business. I enjoy working as a HVAC tech, and also being a part time DJ in town. Mostly, I’d have a gig waiting for me when I leave work at the local HVAC business. It’s more of a side hustle, and I earn extra income.
