Alex Pall is a native of New York City, and like any other locals living in the Big Apple, he needs to work to earn a living and survive.

He used the money he receives from his stint as a DJ to buy the things that he needs. Through the years, his routine focused on his job at the art gallery and his part-time stint at bars and clubs. However, he started developing an interest to focus on his talent being a DJ. He started to work for bars and clubs at night regularly, and he eventually made more money performing at night compared to his career during the day. He came into a decision of leaving his job at the art gallery and focusing on his career as a DJ.
