WHAT ARE YOUR INFLUENCES?

WHAT DO YOU FIND INSPIRING?
I'm fortunate to be surrounded by joyful people, artists, and art, so finding inspiration isn't too difficult. My two 4-year-old nephews, Miles and Jude, inspire me all the time. Miles is a French speaking musical savant, and Jude tears up the dance floor like no other. Recently, I've also found great inspiration in the comical stylings of Harpo Marx.

Gullibility has always been an issue for me. When I was about seven, my 11-year-old sister Katie told me that she was, in fact, Roger Klotz, the teenage villain on the Nickelodeon cartoon Doug.
