Christopher Massardo: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

I think of my friends and family

because they give me all of those.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

The boy wonder.

Why do you do what you do?

I'm good at it and I love it.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

The moment I stepped onto my first

photo shoot set, I knew this was it for

me .

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

The toughest thing I had to over come

were the "nay-sayers" and the people

who didn't want me to succeed.

When you "blow up" quickly in a

small fashion market, people get

jealous and try to put the brakes on

for you. Don't let them.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I was heavily inspired by my

grandparents on my fathers side.

They moved to Canada from Italy in

their early twenties. They barely

spoke any english and didn't know

anybody. That never stopped them

from each becoming successful and

happy. They pushed and they did

well for themselves.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I guess the biggest lesson I've learned

is that you will make mistakes. No

matter how much of a perfectionist

you (or the people around you) are,

mistakes happen and you have to

learn from it. That and be patient.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I have a little book coming out in the

late Spring of 2015, keep an eye out

for that!

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

LISTEN. Listen to what people have to

say. Take everything with a grain of

salt, but always listen. You never

know when a grain can turn to gold.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

If you don't do what you love, you'll

never love what you do.
