A typical day in my life includes…

waking up and feeding the little ones before heading out for the day. At Wonderspaces, every day brings something inspiring – artists building their work, visitors in awe and introspection and an amazing team of people accelerating you to new heights.

I was born…

in Richmond, Virginia but didn’t stay long.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the cook-an-egg-melt-a-cd-burn-bare-feet heat. I completely shut down in the cold. I will accomplish nothing. The heat keeps me moving. Oh, and the fact that it is one of the most beautiful states you’ll ever visit.

I’m listening to…

TANIS and Mission to Zyxx. Sure, I listen to music too, but the right podcast is something special.

My family…

is frequently the cornerstone of the weekend.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Richard Mosse. He is an amazing photographer that documented the Congolese civil war on wonderful Kodak Aerochrome infrared film. The vibrant pinks and purples redefine the violence and masculinity of war.

One thing I cannot live without…

a camera. Preferably other than my iPhone’s. Even when you’re not taking pictures, a camera changes the way you see the world.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a limo driver. No joke.

I’m inspired by…

photography and cinematography. When I see a photo that communicates an entire story like a movie, I immediately want to go out and create my own image.

The one person who motivates me is…

anyone doing their own thing. And doing your own thing can mean working for someone else, but when you love what you are doing, you are doing your own thing. It motivates me. I respect it.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

resource equity. When people’s needs are met, there is no need to exploit resources. I’d like there to be a future with forests, rhinos and starry night skies.

The perfect day would be…

being inducted to Starfleet. Duh.

My first job was…

Gigi’s Cupcakes, which might not be in the Valley anymore?

My favorite escape…

any quality Sci-Fi book, show, or podcast. It has to have more than just blasting phasers like social structures, political constructs, economic systems. *Nerd alert*

My life…

is maturing like a fine wine or smelly cheese.

I’m currently working on…

connecting Wonderspaces Arizona to Arizona’s vivid arts communities.

Always…

start early.

Never…

I don’t like to tell people what to do. Never drive when drowsy?

Favorite Quote…

“Live long and prosper.”

Biggest Dream…

becoming a presidential photographer.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

noise. I prefer the artificial silence of noise-canceling headphones.
