What do you do and why do you do it?

I own an event DJ business called PDX DJs. I do this because I couldn’t think of a better way to earn money than to play music for people on some of the best days of their lives. I am also a part time flight attendant which I love because I enjoy working with people especially when they are excited about flying somewhere fun. It also allows me to travel for free which is something I am passionate about.
