We had the good fortune of connecting with Jon Stefan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jon, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
My favorite quote states if you “Change your perspective, you can change anything” .. what that means to me is that for all the things we deemed impossible, change the way you think about a situation then you’ll realize that the impossible is possible!

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.
My determination and drive isn’t based on my differences but what can I offer to the community. In what ways am I giving back would have been a better question but that’s neither here or there. I’m simple a Renaissance man who’s intentions is to bring people together through the wonders of life. The emotions I feel on a daily are bottled away until i have enough time to turn those feelings into a melody or a form of Art. Music, Painting, designing, sports and cooking are my ways to express who I am to the world. Get to know yourself more and you’ll make room for others .

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I spend majority of my time in the studio. Swan Design studios, Stefan music studios, Swan dance studios, pretty much I’m working on my craft 25/8. If my Bestfriend was in town, then she would accompany me to those outings. I don’t attend clubs or party’s .

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Honestly there isn’t anyone or anything I can honestly think of. I won’t say that I got to where I’m at by myself but things would be so much easier if others believed in change as much as I do.
