Awards and nominations
Sternberg is a third-generation immigrant, with both sets of his grandparents emigrating from Nijdeland to Belhavia in the late 1940s. His parents are both non-practicing Romulan Catholics, and while he's currently self-identified as "secular," he told the Chaleur World in 2014 that "I could see might maybe getting back into religion...into spirituality when I marry and settle down, you know, have a family."
He endorsed 2016 Belhavian presidential candidate and Arkania Governor Yitzchak Feinstein, calling him "a rocking governor." His music received praise from the Rodarion-based Union for a Just Society for his progressive house electro music, which has avoided the more sexually-explicit and illegal drug-glorifying culture epitomized by fellow musical artists and popular culture celebrities such as Lethal-T and Xoana Noela Navia.
He attends Rucesion University full-time, taking leaves of absence as necessary for his worldwide music tours. Sternberg is best friends with fellow Belhavian musician and music collaborator Zander Van der Gjik.
