1. Who are you and what do you do?

 I am me, and I do that pretty well.

2. What's the origin of your artist name?

I find a lot of inspiration in things that can never be described the way they really are. Things like storms and sunsets and quiet undefined moments that mean something you can't fully understand. Also the idea of being showered by downpour of words.

3. What has been your biggest challenge with your art so far?

Lassoing it, breaking it, putting a bridle and blinders on it and forcing it to go in a direction instead of going crazy and trampling the neighbors and eventually dying of exhaustion and being sent to the glue factory.

4. Who or what is your biggest influence?

 The weather, my mental health, and my brothers.

5. What is your wildest story?

The one I don't tell.

6. What is the last book you read?

 I reread Les Miserables for the first time since high school. I've also been paging through poetry and assorted plays. The most recent poetry being You Know Who and His Spites and Tempers, and the most recent play being Zoo Story by Edward Albee.

7. If you could be any character in fiction, who would you be?

 Cyrano de Bergerac

8. What couldn’t you live without?


The two most cliche answers: hope and imagination.

9. What is your secret talent?

 Being secretly talented.

10. Tell me about the last dream you remember having?

I was sitting on an airplane (or possibly an auditorium) and someone sitting a few rows behind me and slightly to my right kept looking at me, and I kept turning to look back, and even though we never spoke, we understood each other perfectly.

11. What are you craving right now?


12. What was the last song you fell in love with?

Either Yankee Bayonet by The Decemberists or This Time Tomorrow by The Kinks

13. Can you hula hoop?

 Well? No.

14. What do you like?

Challenges, teamwork, the smell of lilacs in the rain. Also quiet and spontanaity

15. What do you dislike?

Being overlooked.

16. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

My uncle is Greek, and once he told me, in his very broken English, "The key to live is this - if you make this much," he held his hands close together, "You don't spend THIS MUCH" his eyes went wide and he stretched his arms as far as they would go. The gist is to never spend more than you make. It's served me pretty well.?

17. How and why did you start RECording?

I was inspired by the idea that people all over the world who had never met could share the same vision and work together to create something beautiful. I want to be part of something larger than myself.
