    UGeek Club: Where do you do most of your work?
     
    Vetivs: In my room haha.
     
     
    UGeek Club: Are you inspired by life, images, or imagination?
     
    Vetivs: I would say imagination the most. Life does inspire me too though, especially lyrically. But as far as my actual compositions, it's all in the soul. 
     
     
     
     
    UGeek Club: What drives you most in life?
     
    Vetivs: I would for sure say my wife is my muse and is the one that keeps me focused as well as inspired. But the drive itself comes from within, and that is the drive of my music. 
     
     
    UGeek Club: Where do you want to take your work? Is it more hobby or do you
    want to make a career out of it?
     
    Vetivs: It's definitely a career for me and I would love to be able to be able to support myself and my family with it. Music is in my soul.
     
     
     
     
    UGeek Club: As a musician, what role do you see music playing in society?
     
    Vetivs: I feel it is absolutely necessary and plays a pivotal role. It allows our emotions to have an escape and our thoughts to connect with that in an intimate way. Life without music would be dull indeed. 
     
     
    UGeek Club: What techniques are your favorite?
     
    Vetivs: Yeah, its called git good haha just kidding, but I’m not too sure what this means honestly haha I have multiple techniques that I use in my guitar playing as well as composition writing/arrangement. But I couldn’t specify which or what is my favorite haha.
     
     
     
     
    UGeek Club: How do you want your music to impact society?
     
    Vetivs: I want it to make people think, question, and come together. I feel like music is revolutionary and it must constantly be pushed to new bounds, lyrically and musically, to spark that in us all.
     
     
    UGeek Club: What environmental things inspire you?
     
    Vetivs: I would definitely say other music inspires me the most. Hearing a band’s own vision of creativity does something that drives other creative artisans.
     
     
     
     
     
    UGeek Club: What is your style of choice?
     
    Vetivs: Metal, of course, haha all things metal.
     
     
    UGeek Club: How do UGeek?
     
    Vetivs: I geek in all types of ways haha. From playing video games, I'm like an addict, to Star Wars, and Dungeons and Dragons. You name it, I geek it.
     
     
     
    Get Vetivs new album on Bandcamp when it drops on Sept 14th, 2018.
