Interview with Colby Severson (@drvg0nz)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Video games were something that I enjoyed playing from a very young age. I was aware of all the new and upcoming games and had a deep knowledge of graphics and techniques. My excellent gaming skills encouraged me to create my gaming platform on social media, where I began sharing video game clips. Pretty soon I gained a lot of appreciation from fellow lovers and was followed by a lot more people than I anticipated.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
I feel it is very important that one takes time out from the world of video games and be present in their surroundings. I enjoy spending time with my family and try to pursue my studies with seriousness. That’s my way of being grounded and moving forward with life.
None of us can achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I am very grateful for all the love and support that I’ve been getting on social media from all my fans. Their appreciation is what motivates me and encourages me to do what I do best.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
By sharing my short gaming clips on Instagram, I try to entertain young gamers. They can pick a new trick and technique from my videos.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
I live by the quote that ‘All great things take time. It is important that one keeps working towards their goals and be patient with their efforts. There is always light at the end of the tunnel, one must only give it some time.
