This is Alex, our oldest. He's 29…how did that happen?! I don't feel old enough to be the mom of a 29 year old. Sheesh.
In his 3rd grade class, there were 4 kids named Alex. The teacher had them choose what they wanted to go by. One was Alex. One was Alexander. One was Al. And our Alex went by A.J. Turns out they ALL had ‘J’ middle names. Our Alex's middle name is Joaquin. They had to have a mini lesson on why he could be called AJ when Joaquin starts with a ‘W’ sound. 🤣 That nickname stuck; to everyone outside our family, he's been A.J. ever since.
Alex is an audio playback engineer, musician, project manager, and music director, among other things. He's one of those people who is so good at so many things. His various jobs take him all over the world--last year he did playback on a gig with Jared Leto's band on an Italian island for the birthday of the daughter of a mega Russian oligarch.He's toured with Ariana Grande and Harry Styles. Sometimes, like next week, he even gets to come to little ol' NC. Yeah, he leads a pretty interesting life. Love him to pieces! ❤️
