There are a million things I should be doing. Or making a list about doing. BUT, I have cramps from the depths of Hell and need distractions while I cuddle with my hot water bottle and breathe in and out.
1. Can you cook? Yes! And well! But I have this NEED to bake, mostly. Cookies, pie, root vegetables…But, man am I glad it’s not my night to cook.
2. What was your dream growing up? Like every other kid in 4th grade, I wanted to be a paleontologist. After that, I had dreams of fronting some hardcore rock band, and then to be a stage actress. I went as far as my third year of college with the last one before realizing that I’d drawn myself too inward for such aspirations. I hold onto the dream of supporting myself with my art and doing something with my life that makes the world a better place for everyone.

4. Favorite place? Ocean. Redwoods. Blankets.

8. Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? I have three piercings in one ear and two in the other, and a septum piercing that I only wear jewelry in sometimes. I have an illustration (my own) of an eclipse tattooed on my upper back, center and a Mayan drawing of a cacao tree on my right inner forearm. I want about thirty more tattoos.

15. Tell me one weird fact about you: In junior college I appeared in two episodes of a television series made for Chinese television.
