Lugenbeel: Did you know about the late hours when you started or applied? 

Brown: I applied in 2013 and I didn't know how the hours were gonna feel, because nights were new to me. It's faster but has a slower pace.

Lugenbeel: How has these hours affected your life? 

Brown: You are like a vampire, you know, you sleep most days and work all night. Yeah, no having out, because most of the time when you work my schedule you work weekends and nights and on the weekend your friends tend to sleep in the day and go out at night on the weekend. 

Lugenbeel: Do you like the hours  

Brown: I think I like it because it gives me time to actually meet people at night and make new connections in my area of loving music.
