This blog series is dedicated to the people I most admire answering a quick questionnaire and giving us a glimpse of their inner world.
This is Maher Daniel, a man with many passions. He dedicates the biggest one of them to electronic music and is an amazing DJ and producer, but his interests are eclectic; he loves to travel, and if combined with surfing, even better.
He has an eye for art, owns many of my jewelry pieces, loves to collect sneakers, practices sports, is a total foodie who cooks in a way only someone gifted can, and absolutely adores his dog Reeses.
Maher has an unstoppable energy, driven by his infectious curiosity for life. He’s also one of the most positive people I’ve ever met, always smiles and is a total gentleman.
1. What is Life: A beautiful chaos or a challenging quiz?
I think life is a mix and match of both, chaos surrounds us, but we learn to adapt and live within it, and thats what makes it beautiful. It’s also a challenging quiz because as individuals we try to find what makes us, and this is always a challenging set of questions we give ourselves to find our true selves.
2. What are you: An early bird or party animal?
I am both, during the week when i am not working, I am up and 6 am and have my routine which is also my balance. on the weekends you can find me on the road working and pretty much the 360 opposite of the person I am during the week.
3. What defines your style: Classic or eccentric?
A bit of both, really. I'm very relaxed and like to be comfortable at all times, but when it's time to get funky and dress up, I clean up nice. So I would really say classic.
4. How are your statements: Silent or loud?
It depends on the situation; every individual needs to be both silent and loud; it's how we balance our lives.
5. What is friendship: Transparency or companionship?
Friendship is the ability to have a relationship with an individual or an entity and know that they love you unconditionally. It's the ability to have zero communication with that person for months or years. but once we reconnected, it was like nothing happened and everything was normal.
6. What is love: Complicity or trust?
Love is love, it's unconditional, you’ll know it when it's there.
7. Are you: A people lover or a people keeper?
I have a soft spot for people, even if they have done me wrong. I always try to look for the good in individuals. No one knows what they were going through or the reasons for their actions. I would consider myself both.
8. What is fulfilment: Crazy laughs or inner peace?
You can’t live without both; you need the crazy laughs to escape, yet you need inner peace to reflect and reset to be able to have the crazy laughs.
9. What is fear: Change or courage?
Fear is the courage to change and challenge yourself to overcome fear.
10. What defines you the most: Things that cannot be seen or those in sight?
My ability to forgive and move on, my hard work and ethos that I believe in.
"Life is not about the breaths we take, but about the moments that take our breath away!" Maher.
