Nolan Hausser, also known by his stage name “DJ SECR3T,” received his first DJ board as a gift, but due to his computer’s slow processing power, he was unable to use it for a couple of years.
Eventually, he sold his four-wheeler in order to purchase a MacBook, finally allowing him to pursue what would eventually become his passion.
Once he got to college, he began to perform at frat parties and local bars, which he continues to do now as a junior at Penn State University.
One day, Nolan dreams of playing at a large music festival such as Miami Ultra, but even if he never makes it big, he says he still plans to DJ on the side as a hobby like he does now.
