Watching movies/series online
You work in entertainment field—what are some things you do to recharge and stay inspired?
Watching good quality films and great actors on screen.When I watch a film, I’m not just being entertained. As an actor, I’m also learning from it. So if I have time, I usually binge watch online to keep make myself inspired and motivated to do good quality local films.
Do you have any advice for other creative people who are just figuring things out and trying to find their own path?
You might be scared to start. That’s natural. You have to be curious about the world in which you live. Look things up. Chase down every reference. Go deeper than anybody else. DREAM BIGGER. —that’s how you’ll get ahead. Take time to mess around. (It’s totally fine) Get lost. Wander. You never know where it’s going to lead you.
Google everything. I mean everything. Google your dreams, Google your problems. Don’t ask a question before you Google it. You’ll either find the answer or you’ll come up with a better question. Lastly, RELAX. Trust your own timing.
Finally, is there an inspiring person in your own life you’d like to shout out?
There are two kinds of people who keeps on motivating me to achieve my dreams. those who believed in me, and those who are not.
