when Cartier, Mercedes-Benz or W Ho­tels (among oth­ers) need to set the right vibe at a glam oc­ca­sion, they call DJ Alex Mer­rell. Play­ing th­ese gigs has taken the New York-based Van­cou­ver na­tive to places like St. Barts and Morocco—and since she trav­els over 200,000 kilo­me­tres a year, she’s more likely to run into friends abroad. “My big­gest frus­tra­tion has been miss­ing peo­ple by not know­ing they were in town!” she says. That’s why she’s launch­ing TREC this spring, an iPhone app for fre­quent trav­ellers that syncs friends’ travel cal­en­dars by city. Not on the itin­er­ary? “I avoid clubs! I pre­fer lit­tle jazz bars.”
