“How do you define yourself?”

“Loud and outgoing. That’s me…”

“Art isn’t as easy is anyone says its not like painting and taking pictures. You have to try to be original because in the end you are going to be compared to an old artist and his works that someone saw. That’s not something that you would want.”

“If you had to choose a song to describe your life, what would it be?”

“For my student life: something from Kanye West’s ‘College Dropout’ album or Radiohead’s ‘In Rainbows’. For love life: ‘Untitled/How Does it Feel’ by Jeff D’angelo. For my personal life:  ‘Grinnin’ in Your Face’ by Son House.”

“What’s the strangest thing you’ve done?”

“When I was 9 I was at my grandma’s house for the summer and there were these guys who used to hang out in my grandma’s backyard but they always made fun of me and were really rude. One time there was a wasp that landed in my hair and the boys ran away and laughed at me so I borrowed a jar from my grandma, knowing they would return later. I used the jar to collect wasps and when they returned to gather in the backyard, I retrieved the jar, shook it violently, and then threw it at the group of boys. So, I created a wasp-bomb when I was 9 … I think that’s kind of strange.“

“I think my childhood has a lot to do with why I’m fascinated with nature so much and why I study what I study. I had tons of animal books and watched Zoboomafoo religiously. Rest in peace little buddy. I don’t want to be just another person aware of but still ignoring ocean acidification or climate change. Those things are really important, and no one seems to care much. It’s frustrating but I want to do something. I want to save the world and all the things I’ve grown to love. Like cuttlefish, they’re rad.”

“When you are eighty, what is the thing you would most like to be able to say you achieved?”

“I want to be able to say that the world is a tiny bit better because of me. If I have the chance of making any kind of impact on the world, I’ll definitely take it. And if everyone thought this way, the world would be a better place.”
