We had the good fortune of connecting with Dominic Ryan Estanislao and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dominic Ryan, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
One of my favorite quotes that I can stand by is from Jim Rohn. It goes “Don’t ask for security, ask for adventure. Better to live 30 years full of adventure than a 100 years safe in the corner.” Now, what that means to me is everyone is giving one life with no do overs, no respawns and no second chance. I believe that everyone should go out and follow their passion. Whatever it maybe, we should all feel alive. Close to the end of our lifetime, I want all of us to feel confident and feel accomplished with what we’ve done in life.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Being a creative in the digital space, I can say is very challenging. It is tough to set yourself apart from the other creators out in the world. But what I can say that sets me apart others is one word: EFFORT. You might think that being a creator you should be able to level up your creativity or content. Yes, all those are true. But the amount of effort you put into your work can really set you apart from the rest. Even at music festivals that I attend. When an artist or DJ is sweating putting in the effort on stage, I should too. There should be no reason that they’re sweating and you’re not. What I’ve learned is if you put in the effort in your craft the end product is worth in sweat. Which we like to call “sweat equity.”

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my best friend was visiting Southern California for a week, then they better prepare for the most spontaneous trip ever. Especially with me, I see myself as an adventurer so the first thing that we would when they get off the plane is go Skydiving in Oceanside. I see it as a welcome to SoCal and its been awhile since I’ve seen you. Upon completing that, we would head down to Phil’s BBQ which I think has really good BBQ. Who wouldn’t enjoy a nice plate of brisket or ribs after jumping off a plane 14,000Ft in the air right? The next day, a relaxing day at Disneyland would be nice and since I used to work there. I know all the Do’s and Dont’s of the resort. Now, I can say that I have never been to Yosemite National Park, so we would go there as a first time. As a content creator, I see this as an opportunity to see places that isn’t so far away from my home.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
When I began my Guest Show Operations development at the Disneyland Resort, I was mentored by Cryssy Alvarado – a GSO lead at the time. Cryssy developed and refined by leadership skills on the field and helped me become a GSO trainer. Teaming up with many other cast members on the parade route daily really taught me a lot. Another shoutout that I’d really love to mention is the community of the “YES” fam which is built from a popular YouTube group “Yes Theory.” Like minded individuals who are driven to capture their goals and to step outside of their comfort zone because life is better outside of your comfort zone. An individual from that community is Dereck Ramirez. Officially, we first met at a Yes Theory event in Venice Beach, CA but we have been connect through social media long before. Ever since, we began a plan to travel and make content for travel companies in South America.
