Describe your perfect day
April 25th. Because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.

Best book ever read?
I can’t say one specific book. I’m going through phases when it comes to books. An old time favourite is The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, it always inspires and moves me. My favourite character of all time is the Wicked Witch of the West.

Getting my first dog Leo

I don’t have one

What are you most proud of?
Directing my first show Dark Vanilla Jungle with zero budget

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
The scene in the movie Midsommar when the main character Dani cries and screams her grief out loud. The group of girls who are with her mirror her emotions. It’s a cleansing and visceral scene, I find it very powerful and it really stays with you.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
Fran Lebowitz

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
In the future to see when the world is ending

Animal cruelty

Probably stay home and re watch Rupaul’s Drag Race until the end
