Hot DJ Alex Cecil is a prime example of taking a leap of faith and following your passions in life. While growing up on the Upper East Side in New York City, he explored his artistic side, taking up the cello in the 2nd grade. “I was talented at it, but it wasn’t the right medium for me,” remembers Cecil, who was also very good with numbers and received a perfect score on his math SAT’s. At Georgetown University he majored in finance and minored in art, to challenge and expand his mind. After graduating, he worked for Citibank for five years until one day he decided to do something very different.
