TribeLA Magazine Acrostic Interview.5
Indulgence: What is your favorite indulgence? Do you cook? What is your specialty meal? What is your favorite restaurant in LA where you indulge yourself?
I love to cook and I’m getting pretty good at Indian food. I really like the tacos from the truck on Rose in Venice, and I enjoy all the restaurants on Sawtelle.
Special: Who or what holds a special place in your heart? How does this factor into your creative process?
People are what interest me. We are miraculous and complex creatures and that is the story I want to tell.
Time: What is your all-time favorite piece of writing/art/music you’ve created?
I’m pretty keen on that Screaming Cleaver!
