Q&A

What's your favorite costume? Why?

The costume from Forsythe’s Artifact, because of how comfortable it is and the freedom of moment that it allows.

What's your perfect day?

The days I get to experience and give back kindness in some way.

I love San Francisco because...

It’s a big, open-minded, free-spirited city surrounded by stunning nature. It's where I feel at home.
