SORU: Interview


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

My father. He’s always been an extremely passionate and very strong person. He’s been one of my biggest inspirations since I was a child. As far as dance goes, Lyle Beniga is a big inspiration.

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

I’m a creator. I like to fabricate designs in many different mediums. I love bringing great things to life, and observing the response they illicit.

What are the things you want to accomplish?

Direct a highly successful game, release a critically acclaimed album, travel the world, and find love.

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

I’ve loved video games ever since I was a child, playing the Super Nintendo. My father was the one who showed me music at a young age, and I grew up loving it more and more. Love? Well, who doesn’t want to find love?

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

I’ll probably have to move far away from my hometown of Ottawa. I’m lucky to have a great support system of family and friends who always have my back.

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

Game Designers such as Hideo Kojima and artists such as Michael Jackson are my primary inspirations for my career goals. I’d like to say I’ve been able to touch a few lives along my journey. I’m aware of a few.

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

Sometimes being too nice is something that is preyed upon. Won’t make that same mistake twice.

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

I’m releasing an album soon - hopefully this summer. I also plan to move to California to pursue my career in game design, in the near future.

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

The saying “Do what you love, love what you do” is very true. Also, be appreciative of the things around you. Don’t take anything for granted. You never know when you might lose something.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

You decide your happiness. If you don’t have that, make it happen.
