What is your proudest achievement in life?
What do you most dislike about contemporary culture?
What do you most like about the age we live in?

Everybody has a different way, but for me they are pretty much the same. If I hadn’t found something to do, I would have been a crack whore.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given?
Get over yourself.
What is the biggest risk you’ve ever taken?
Recommend a book or poem that has changed your perspective on life?

What is your earliest childhood memory?
A neighbour showing me a handmade box covered in rhinestones. I must have been about three.
What’s the most important relationship in your life?
My better half, Hun.
What’s the most romantic action you’ve taken?
What’s the most spiritual action you’ve taken?
Going to the gym.
If you could wish for one change in the world what would it be?
I don’t profess to know better — it is all an evolutionary miracle that seems to balance out despite collapse and glory.
