Your Boy Brian: Interview


The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Youtube Make-A-Wish Videos

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

An old creep

Why do you do what you do?

I suck at sports

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I dropped out of art school, was working in bars, didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. Some friends told me I should try DJing because I was the only person in Toronto with good taste in music and it turned out they were right. Didn’t know it would end up being my career, but it was a ton of fun so I just kept doing it

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Not knowing how to DJ. But you don’t really need to know how to DJ to be a good DJ

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

DJ AM was super inspiring because I didn’t know that open-format was a viable style before him and also he was the most humble dude ever. Hating every job I’ve ever had inspired me to try Djing for a living. I’ve probably inspired a few people because people look at me and think ‘if this scrub can do it than so can i’

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I guess posting stupid shit to social media is a mistake in the eyes of career-minded folks? Almost every time I post to twitter or instagram I lose a few followers. It’s made me realize that a lot of people find me irritating, and most of those people hire professional photographers to take pictures of them eating brunch


Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

My secret goal is to write a book someday. But I don’t really have anything to say so there’s that


What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Listen to Billy Joel


Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I loved owls before Drake made them cool
