Life in the Fast Lane
So first of all tell me a little bit about yourself
I'm an actor but I'm not just an actor.
I chose to be many different things. Like, I discovered myself. I, I think that my job actually made me discover who I really am. And, there's this thing about my job that sometimes you just have to wait for the next opportunity and this taught me how to, look for the next thing. Work on it right. Try directing. Try understanding different elements of the job. So I learnt about editing, I learnt about production, scriptwriting, cinematography, basically everything that involves my job. So this led to other things as well, so I got really interested in to painting for example, sculpting.
In your mind, what is the key to a life rich of experiences
In my mind, a life rich of experiences would be, accepting everything, and channeling whatever is coming into something positive, because I believe in positivity and I think it's always related to presence.
How do you make rich experiences happen? Meaningful, memorable, powerful rich experiences happen
By believing in them. And like being totally into them. Like reliving the experience not thinking of what's next.
Rich experiences are basically about only being present. And that's it.
What does being present mean to you?
Is being fully immersed in what's happening now, in the now. And, I had reached this after a lot of experiences and time that it only made sense that it's only about the now.
Life in the fast lane means dressing for...
Life in the fast lane means dressing for being a Bond...a James Bond. You're always prepared.. you're always ready. You kind of have, like a backpack in the back of your car, just ready for anything ...with swim shorts, this suit or whatever.
[That's living in the fast lane. You'll always be there. Always prepared. You're always in shape, in style... according to what your character is.
What are you thinking about when you're buying wardrobe essentials?
When I buy wardrobe essentials, it's about how I feel towards what I'm buying if it fits, if it gives me the character that I like, cause there are a lot of good things that fit on me, but they just wouldn't suit me. It has to be me.
And what do you think style wise? What do you feel when you try something on? Do you go...'damn I look good'
It just fits perfectly. I'm walking like I should walk and I'm behaving like I should behave. It gives me and I don't know ...it's not confidence. It's comfort. It compliments how I feel about myself. It's not what you wear that defines you, it's how you wear it.
Life in the fast lane means...?
Life in the fast lane means going with the flow and your gut feeling. That's my kind of day. I meet random people. Yes there are stuff to be done and planned for, but always keep yourself open for a new thing. An answer... an unexpected conversation... or even a scenery could have an enormous impact on anyone. One can never imagine until experienced.
Living in the present is light. There is a silver lining to living a life in the fast lane. And that, is being present.
