The Hero’s Journey of Alberto Anaya Lopez

What is the best thing that I love about my work? Working with so really passionate people and seeing them so happy when I send them the tracks. It is a true satisfaction, and I love this to the point that it does not feel like work at times.
What is my idea of perfect happiness? Happiness is being aware of the value of everything we have without having to lose things and realizing how lucky we were when we had them.
What is my greatest fear? The health and wellbeing of my people. 
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? Not paying enough attention to people at times while talking because of the sea of things I have in my mind.

Which living persons in my profession do i most admire? My teachers.

What is my greatest extravagance?   Search for the very most nitpicky things in my mixes.
On what occasion would I lie? I don´t even do white lies… Sometimes (less times that I would like) I just try to put together the best words and without any success more often than not.
What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work?  Computer related issues that make you spend more time on stupid things .
When and where was I the happiest, in my work? At my place with people from the crew and the director loving what I did for them. 
If I could, what would I change about myself?   When I tidy up at home I put things in places that I don´t remember later. I shouldn´t be so absent-minded.
