Meet a Bigfish…who’s actually done some fishing.

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?

This was a really hard question for me to answer since I feel this could be very situational. That said, there is a memory from like 13 years ago when my dad took me and my brother fishing into deeper seas and we caught some pretty decent size fish. We brought them back and together with a couple of his rural friends we learned how to cut open and clean the fish. After cleaning them and getting them somewhat fileted, we used an oversized steel wok and a makeshift fire to deep-fry the fish one-by-one, throwing some seasoning and tortillas into the bowl of oil. We ate those fish with our hands and tortillas, some limes and some salsa. It was an excellent experience and meal that has always stuck out over other good meals.

If you could leave on vacation tomorrow, where would you go? 

If it were possible, the moon. I know some people would say Mars but the moon is closer. I guess my chances of surviving a terrible space catastrophe would be much better being closer to earth rather than months away, heh, heh. 

More realistically though, Japan.

Where or from whom do you draw your inspiration from? 

I feel like sources of inspirational come from various places and that often depends on what I am doing at the moment.

Right now for example, I have a deep appreciation for young successful individuals that work in creative industries. I grew up watching YouTube video creators and video bloggers that have successfully dominated alternative media and social media in order to create successful businesses and production media companies. Their audacity and hard work have inspired me a lot. 

What are your favorite types of projects to work on?

My favorite types of project are digital related, like web, motion graphics, app design. I also really like creating logos and doing sequential branding.

What’s something you’d like to learn or improve on? 

I would like to learn how to code and develop. Not only for web, but for mobile and desktop applications as well.
