What food can you not live without?

Snap peas. They’re my favorite.

What do you never leave the house without?

I’m rarely without my sketchbook, even when I know I might not have the opportunity to put it to use. It’s a security blanket thing.

What’s your dream job?

I’m working toward a career in art therapy. I want to help people understand the beneficial aspects of the creative process, particularly those in communities with less access to or awareness of art.

What are you reading right now?

I’m in the middle of a collection of short stories by Kelly Link called Get in Trouble.

What bands are you listening to right now?

Some of my favorites at the moment are The National, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Sylvan Esso, and Glass Animals.
