– J.M.Barrie, Peter Pan
In my life, thus far I have been an artist, teacher, dancer, actor, writer, photographer, and filmmaker. With each new project, I bring them all with me; a toolkit of multiple creative applications in order to create the best work possible. It gives me the ability to build worlds beyond galaxies with stories and visuals that aim to stir the conscience and awaken movement within the soul. Collaborating with other like-minded artists brings purpose and validation to my work and being. Nothing brings me more fulfillment than to breathe life into creations that were once but dreams. I believe in doing whatever it takes to leave some kind of footprint or echo before we create our last frame and say our last line. Whether they be for the next generation or a blip to be caught on a radar centuries away, I aim to make every project provoking and exciting pieces of work.
Outside of my creative world, I love overcast skies, meeting new people, dancing in my room, finding a new favorite song and getting strangely excited opening a new pack of spearmint gum. (I can’t be the only one.) I’m a huge X-Men fan, love a great cup of coffee and a genuine smile. I’m incredibly resourceful when it comes to solving creative problems and I’m one hell of a cook when I follow the recipe.
Music runs my every day. From Michael Jackson to Marylin Manson, Lauryn Hill to Imogen Heap, Sigur Ros to Nine Inch Nails, I walk to a new theme song every day. I am easily humbled simply by looking up at the same night sky as our ancestors. My biggest competitor is the guy who challenges me in every reflection. My mother and two sisters are my rock and my friends are my lighthouses.
My name is John Nasteff…
And these are my echoes.
