Well before I wanted to be a DJ I wanted to be an animator so I guess I was always somewhat creative. I was/am a good artist and did basic animations for fun all the time. 'Then one day' I got screwed over by my high school art teacher who gave me an E- (basically because of who I was friends with). That meant I couldn't go to university/college for what I actually wanted to do and that was that. Not long after high school I found dance music and started focusing in that direction for all my creative outlets.

Well that REALLY sucks about your high school teacher. :( But I honestly think that your a really good DJ, so maybe it happened for a reason. Maybe you were mean't to be the awesome DJ you are today! :)

More often than not, it seems like what someone wants to do doesn't work out but instead steers them in another direction. kinda weird how that works. I was all ready to apply to colleges but then things got so hard my senior year (academics and normal life stuff) that I fell content to just going to my local community college. :p And even now I feel like I'm wasting my time there.

As far as the talent thing goes, I thing anyone has a certain amount of talent in something. What matters I think is working HARD. If you wanna produce but don't have much talent with it, then work really hard to GET good. If you love it, it will come. ;)
