Who are you?
My name is Antton Willberg. Friends call me Bäri, Antsa, Pärsky, Riini etc. I come from Hollola and my passion is videography and photography.
What did you want to be when you were a child?
I wanted to be an F1 driver and when I was in junior high school I contemplated to be an electrician.
What does success mean to you?
For some of us it means money and power. To me it means doing things you love and learning something new everyday. Money is important, but it´s not the priority to me.
What quote inspires and motivates you to be yourself and do what you love?
Believing in that everything happens for a reason makes life so much easier, and I’m trying not to spend too much time to think what people think about me. One of my favorites is this Rocky Balboa quote: ”It ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”
What does the world need more of? Less of?
The world needs more honest politicians, more positivity and more actions reducing climate change. And of course – more good food and less internet trolls.
Name a woman whom you admire or look up to.
What characteristics do you most admire in other creative people?
Positivity, easygoing nature and helpfulness. People who share their ideas and don’t kill the inspiration.
What’s your favorite thing to come home to after a long day of work?
Eating good food and feeling the quietness are my favorite things after a long day.
Which of your traits are you the most proud of?
That I’m social, laid-back and cheery.
Name your greatest success in your career.
The greatest success is that I’ve finally found my passion. I’ve been a great salesman, but I don’t think that as my greatest success.
What surprises people most about you?
People can think that I’m little bit arrogant/angry when I’m not talking or smiling. I’m friendlier than people think.
What was your first job?
My first real job was telemarketer and I was amazingly good at it, but it wasn’t my thing so I quit after five months.
Who is your style icon and why?
Depends what kind of style we are talking about. I don’t get much influence from others, but I think my style icons are David Beckham, Harvey Specter from the series Suits and Ryan Gosling. Good looking watch, nice leather shoes and collar shirt are my things, but I’m not afraid of getting dressed simple and relaxed.
