“What are you passionate about?”

“Pop culture. It’s fascinating. Most of it’s bullshit. But it’s a narrative that we can be anything we want to be, whether it’s a clown one day, that was my inspiration today. I’m Harley Quinn today. So pop culture, mostly from the 1970’s. I love clothes. I love sewing. My favorite artists keep my going. I’m obsessed. I’m obsessed with obsession.”


“What helped you connect with yourself enough to be so expressive?”

“My sister. She was always telling me to be myself and push the boundaries. She was always painting my nails, and dressing me up in drag because I asked her to. I always remember watching her and other women get ready and it was so fascinating to watch.”

“What’s one of the biggest obstacles you’ve had to overcome in your life and how did it help you become who you are?”

“Mostly finding out that I don’t really identify as male, nor do I identify as female. I find myself and my expression outside of the gender binary and all these things we were supposed to be and just focusing on finding myself beautiful.”
