WHAT ARE YOUR INFLUENCES?

I don't know how to talk about my influences without sounding like an asshole. Nature? Love? Shostakovich, and The Ramones? Everything has it's impact.

WHAT DO YOU FIND INSPIRING?

What do I find inspiring? When people are so deep in their art that you can't help but follow them. When all the lists, emails, criticism, and benal dialogue in your head shuts off - and you finally pay attention.

TELL US A FUNNY STORY ABOUT YOURSELF.

I once performed viola for a show and was super excited that we got to wear costumes! Unfortunately, the costumes turned out to be sweatsuits with fake dreadlock pubic and armpit hair attached.
