I love people, culture and peace. I make art or advocate for ideas to ensure that those three things are protected and nurtured.
What's the one word you are guilty of using too much?
If you ask my parents, I Instagram too much. I don’t know why. Maybe because I am always at home creating, running around solo and I want to share intimate snapshots of my life.
Or maybe because I want to brag about some awesome experience or event, not to annoy people, because I myself can have a digital archive of a timeline of my life and remember the cool people and events that happen. My life speeds by in a blur and as much as I try to be present with it, I miss things. Taking pics is my way of remembering, processing and learning from them.
I took the red pill
Which member of the Wu-Tang Clan best describes your personality?
Well, despite of having a huge crush on him throughout my college and 20s, I won’t say Method Man. And to not blow myself into something doper than I really am, I won’t claim Ghostface Killer; I’m not at that level yet.
I’d have to say RZA would be the Killer Bee that best describes me. I nerd out on kung fu flicks, Eastern philosophies and like to dip my hands into everything. I won’t say I will master them all but shit, nothing will stop me from trying new things and wanting to do it my way.
Dogs or Cats, who wins? Why?
Dogs by default simply because I am allergic to cats.
And technically, I am allergic to dogs too but for some reason, there are a select few who don’t cause me any problems.. So I’d say the champs are Koki and Harper, because I am biased like that.
The ability to change a bad mood or situation around. So long as I have time, I have a chance to always to bend my life to where it needs to go, Avatar-steez. LifeBender.
Favorite Buzzfeed list or quiz? Why?
That is like asking me to go to th beach, pick up a handful of sand and pic your favorite micro-shell…
Fine. Since you like to put limitations on me…
In a zombie apocalypse who would you want on your survival team?
Seeing that Michonne was was handy with the blade, I’d like to have my own version of the Crazy 88s except they wouldn’t suck like they did in the movie. The Professor from Gilligan’s Island would be cool to have too. I like being comfortable in whatever compound we have to make while we travel. Or and a goose that lays golden eggs, but it won’t lay eggs; she will lay golden 22lr bullets so I will always have a never ending supply of ammo for my Hello Kitty Smith and Wesson M&P15
What is the last thing you searched for on google?
What Buzzfeed was.
If you could talk to your high school self, what would say?
Stop second-guessing yourself! Oh and dump him because years later, he’s going to cheat on you. Only you knew him but you act like you got a endless supply of “benefit of a doubt” to give out. Listen to your gut. You are more powerful than you even realize.
What is the best thing or meal you ever ate?
Whatever I eat after running 7 miles on a mountain.
What is a memorable project that you are working on or have worked on?
Transforming myself and bringing all aspects of me- spirit, emotions, mind and body- to vibrate on a higher frequency.
