Turn On’s:

Compassion. There is something fundamentally wrong with a world that values profits over human suffering and the natural world. I want to be a part of something symbiotic, free, more just.

Turn Off’s:

Controlling, narrow minded, lacking agency, indecisiveness

Last Meal on Earth:

Hong Kong style tomato beef chow mein without beef

What is your “community?”

activists, artists, crossword puzzle doers, spicy food eaters, travelers, whiskey and mezcal appreciators, avid readers, practicing writers, bad jokers, hip hoppers, night club dancers, karoke singers, coffee drinkers, meandering walkers, animal lovers, fast drivers, star gazers and all dorks.

What inspires you?

I get most of my ideas on long walks. I have no idea where they come from.

When did you know you were going to be an artist?

I think when my babysitter asked me at age two what I would be named if I could choose any name. I said plum. And later, yogurt.

If not yourself, who would you be?

A world famous chef first female NBA basketball playing professor of art and multiracial studies. I think it is self-explanatory: I would be awesome.

Where can people find you?

In space?

What’s next?

work work work

Is there anything else you would like the reader to know?

That your existence gives me hope.
