What do you do, and what is your passion in life? I am a passionate, ambitious, hardworking photographer and filmmaker!, only thing that can stop me from success is death itself and even then my work, my passion, my legacy with continue to grow and live on forever!.. #thebaci Who is your inspiration in life and how do you stay inspired? Anyone who didn't start life with a silver spoon, people that started with nothing!, no money, little education, half talented people that worked so hard against all odds and made it!... These people inspired me and I stay inspired by other people doubts in me, they will always laugh at you then when you are successful they'll want to be you!... What is your life aspiration? Semi retire by age 45, only work I want to do is make phone calls and pick up my pay checks!.. My work will be my passion and that will be for free!. We all make mistakes we wish we could take back. Tell me about a time you wish you had handled a situation differently with a colleague. I don't live with any regrets, things happen for a reason and we all find that out at the end!. When you're working with a large number of customers it's tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. How do you go about prioritizing your customers needs? It's not tricky to deliver excellent services to everybody, this is what I do, this is what they hired me to do!... So it's that easy, if I offer excellent services, I will deliver excellent services!.. Hard work and passion for what you do will keep you consistent. Tell me about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities. I spending my time writing this now, doing my own PR when it's 7:30pm I haven't eaten, iv been working since 8am and I skipped the gym just to get her done!.. Give me an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way. Lead by example, I give all my team advice or tell them how it is or should be, many smirk and shake their heads.. I deliver results everything, now they believe me. Tell me about your proudest professional accomplishment. Recently being invited to host a wedding photography and videography workshop at the very first wedding conference in Malaysia. They flew me to KL and had me represented as a leader in my business in all of SE Asia... For me it was huge considering I just started photographing weddings just 5 years ago and I started my company with a borrowed camera and $1000 in my bank living in a 3rd world country that was across the world from my native home in America.... I feel I am still learning everyday and that I was still a somewhat of a newbie but that is just me being hard on myself again, the organization that asked me to speak at their conference believed in me... Aldo I have never spoken in front of a crowd so that was another milestone in my career and in life!
