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

Hi Oswaldo, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
The truth is that I never saw this as a business, it started as a hobby, since I was very young I have had this skill in my fingers and I used to play that my fingers were just another person. It was very easy for me to walk and dance with my fingers and little by little I was perfecting the technique. Nowadays thanks to social networks I have made myself well-known and this has therefore generated an extra income with partnerships for advertising and paid collaborations.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I always felt sorry to express myself or show my face in the videos because I have an engineering job where I have staff in my charge, and I felt that if my colleagues knew what I was doing they would no longer respect me as a boss which is totally false, nowadays everyone at work knows what I do and they are now my fans. Currently, I have two very heavy jobs that consume all my time but that is not an impediment to stopping doing what I like, I usually get home very late, but on the nights before bed, I try to create content and more than an obligation I see it as a relief to counteract stress. The followers ask me to do it live and I do it very at night when most of them sleep, however, there are always very many spectators.
Every time I have a free space I dedicate it to creating content, but my work (Engineer and Photographer) is a priority right now.
I have two more jobs besides being a content creator on my fingers. From Monday to Friday I work as an engineer in a very important electricity company in Mexico (Federal Electricity Commission) additionally I am a professional photographer and on weekends I dedicate myself to fashion and social photography. It’s a mixture of ingenuity and creativity that’s how I define it.
My legacy: That there should be no stereotypes of dances that music and dance can be expressed and felt in any way as long as they are done with the heart.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to dedicate this to my dad, He wasn’t too open to this project of mine but he is my number 1 fan and he is always excited to show off my talent to his friends
