Estiva: Interview


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

Combining these elements makes for a happy and successful living.

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

I’m a shy guy slowly exploring the world and gaining confidence while doing that.

Why do you do what you do?

Because it makes me feel good and happy about myself.

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

During the process of becoming better at writing music in combination with becoming better in sharing the music with more and more people. I guess it’s not about realizing you want to do something, it’s about just doing it because it feels natural to you.

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

Finding the right balance between my social life and my passion and seeing my passion from the business side of things. My friends and family are still helping me out, probably without even knowing it <3

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

No one in particular. I don’t really have hero’s I guess. Of course I do respect people for their beliefs but I will always follow my dreams, even though I realize you have to adjust those dreams from time to time.

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

Being too egoistic and not being selfish enough. Of course I’ve learned from the past but nobody is perfect, even after a life full of learning and experience.

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

Being able to fill a three hour show with only music written by myself and being able to take people on a journey and show them different aspects of my creativity.

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

Being honest is never wrong.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)
