I was recently interviewed for the "Do Tell" section of YAM Magazine (Sept/October, Style Issue). For editing purposes, the full interview was cut short, so here it is, in full:
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
A fine balance of having my head in the clouds and my feet on the Earth.
What is your greatest fear?
Unexpressed potential; especially with music. I keep starting to play instruments and sing but then run out of time and have to stop.
What do you admire most in your friends?
My friends are all living very cool lives; they are resilient people who pursue their dreams and I learn a lot from that.
What is the trait you most deplore in others?
Deplore is a strong word for me, but I really get annoyed when I hear people chewing loudly.
Which living person do you most admire?
My mom – she has an incredible life story.
What is your greatest extravagance?
What or who is the greatest love of your life?
On what occasion do you lie?
It doesn’t matter because the interwebz are recording everything now, but for the record; when I do lie they are mostly small white ones.
Where are you happiest?
Under the stars in the tropics.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
What historical figure do you most identify with?
I like Frida Kahlo a lot because she was a passionate artist and an honest, loving human being. But I don’t like the physical suffering she went through.
If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what would it be?
Probably a dinosaur.
What is your most treasured possession?
A pendant that my mom gave me.
