What is your idea of perfect happiness?

To be complete with myself, to love myself as I am, and accept the changes that come.

 

What is your most marked characteristic?

I make weird noises, well other people think their weird, I think they are awesome.

 

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

I think the greatest achievement anyone can have are the small, personal “I did it!” moments. They are usually embarrassing to mention. Something like giving your CV and a cover letter in person.

 

What is your greatest fear?

Giving up. It is important to try and never give up on ourselves.

 

Which living person do you most admire?

James Victore - a graphic designer from the US, he has a series of videos that are very true and always get me into a optimistic mood.

 

Who are your real life heroes?

Volunteers.

 

What is the trait you most dislike in yourself?

My bad concentration when it is needed. It’s hard to maintain a one thing focus this days.

 

What is the trait you most dislike in others?

Fast judging and nasty talking.

 

What is your favourite journey?

A barefoot on bare land. A journey in the end of which I will meet the people I love and miss. And a challenging one of course.

 

What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

Assuming things (if I get this correctly), nothing is what you think it is just because that is what you think, and that applies on what people think about you as well as what your opinions are based on, be tolerant towards yourself and others.

 

Which word or phrases do you most overuse? 

Sweet, Sweet corn 

 

What is your greatest regret?

Not being able to see so many amazing musician live anymore! Losing people is hard.

 

What is your current state of mind?

Right now I am trying to greet all that comes with a smile, and enjoy the positivity and shed it back at people, hope it's working. 

 

If you could change one thing about your family, what would it be?

It is good because it is like it is, so changing it would be hard. We are a pretty awesome tribe to be frank.

 

What is your most treasured possession?

My skate equipment and my cameras, but sometimes I like to forget I own anything. Right now though,  I’m slowly and carefully  collecting more and more of camping equipment.

 

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?

Leaving people behind. It is misery and pain.

 

Where would you like to live?

Netherlands will be in the top of the list right now. I’ve had the idea ever since I was a teenager, so I will have to happen  one day.

 

What is your favourite activity (bar skateboarding) ?

Swing dancing, which I practice for some month now! It makes me happy to move to them 50’s beats.

 

What is the quality you most like in people?

I’d say sharing and giving, both are connected and can be as one.

I am having a revolution and doing it for myself.
