Where did you grow up?
The Universe

Where do you live?
East Village, Manhattan

Your star sign?

Whats your personal sound track at the moment?
Pow wow music, black metal, Smashing Pumpkins, , 90’s rave music, NWA and silence….not necessarily in that order.

Who is your style icon?
The treasures I find at thrift stores and flea markets…they are their own icons of narrative, style and history, I just get to wear them to give them life…oh and I love the old ladies that shuffle around New York in twenty layers of clothing regardless of the season and never seem to break a sweat….and wrestlers and flappers from the 1920s…

What do you do or what would you like to do when you grow up?
I make pictures on paper and skin, and by the time I grow up (or die, whichever comes first) I want to be able to listen to records on an old gramophone, take a daily bath in a claw foot tub, drive around in my cadillac and go to sleep every night in a four poster bed with my pet leopard…
