SAN MARCOS- Adam Cheng, 21, is a senior in his last semester at Texas State and is majoring in public relations with a minor in sociology!
Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, Adam has an infatuation with all the local sports teams such as the Cowboys and Rangers. Way back in the golden days (6 years ago), Adam had dreams of playing for the Dallas Mavericks, but soon realized that everyone else is trying to do the same thing. His parents, who are prestigious dance artists, brought him back to reality and told him to pursue a different career path. When Adam's basketball superstar dreams came to an abrupt end, he somewhat followed the footsteps of his parents and caught an eye for music! From that point on Adam knew he was in the right place. He joined the drum-line, snares to be exact, but he was so good that he got promoted to snare captain! In fact, he even played with the jazz ensemble which was not an easy transition but Adam was down for the cause.
Fast forward to 2017. Adam is now a DJ at multiple bars, two on 6th street in Austin, and also here in town at Nephews on the square. He had the opportunity to open up for Mac Miller but got the short end of the stick by being strictly a DJ with no lyrics. He travels a ton!!! He told me that he has traveled to 44 states in U.S! This year he plans to go to numerous music festivals including: Coachella, and Buku in New Orleans. Adam also has family in China that he hasn't been able to interactive with as much as he'd like to. To know more about Adam you can catch him around the Phi Kappa Tau frat house, or ask him about his tattoos, each of which has an exhilarating story!
