WHAT INSPIRES ME:

Interviewing people who are truly tied to and devoted to their art, no matter stage they’re at or what extreme they go to make it happen. I’m also obsessed with reading biographies of everyone from Assata Shakur to Coco Chanel to Che Guevara.

FAVORITE PLACE TO GET AWAY IN MY AREA:

The Griffith Observatory to see the stars!

FAVORITE WRITERS:

Audre Lorde, Paulo Coelho, Nikki Giovanni

ARTIST/CREATIVE YOU’D WANT TO HAVE LUNCH WITH:

Sade

MOST OVER-HYPED ARTIST:

Grrrr…..how much time do you have?

PERFECT SOUNDTRACK FOR WRITING:

Slow instrumentals for sure…can’t concentrate if lyrics are involved.

WHY I LOVE WHERE I LIVE:

After living in New York for a while, I love soaking up the space and the sun that L.A. has to offer. Being able to take long hikes in the mountains in the middle of the week in December is beyond thrilling.
