DJ, Host, Accountant, Chocoholic
What are you passionate about?
Pursuing, honing, and working toward a creative career that will also enable me to provide financial stability for my family. And helping others, especially those who don’t have the same privileges most of us take for granted. And fighting the “consumer” mindset! Don’t conform!
Where do you go for inspiration?
If I’m feeling uninspired, I either go to sleep, read a good book, or I watch live performance clips on Youtube (Bjork is always a good one, Screaming Females, Jackson 5, Soul Train music guests, Rites of Spring, etc.)
No matter your mood, what song always makes you happy?
I know this might be a stereotypical answer, but it has personal sentiment for me—“Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Or any song off of My Bloody Valentine’s “Loveless” album.
What’s your anti-drug?
Chocolate and/or desserts.
What do you like to do in your past-time?
Having fun with the people I love.
What’s your most embarrassing moment?
Slipping and falling on my bum in front of a crowd. Although I should’ve seen it coming… I was in the middle of carrying turntables into a venue while wearing 4 inch platforms.
What’s the best way to approach you?
Just say hi! And for the no-fail approach, you should also present me with a pack of Milano cookies.
What qualities do you feel a man should possess? (give at least 3)
HUMOR because life is too short to be taken seriously, generosity because if he isn’t giving then he’s going to be a narcissistic jerk, and intelligence (this one goes unsaid). The rest (which includes all the superficial stuff) doesn’t matter ultimately. Although if he has terrible style and/or personal hygiene, those things can change. A terrible personality does not.
What’s your idea of a perfect date?
I’m not a picky person, so as long and I’m with my boo then I’m good. Although I’d throw in some star-watching, I’m a sucker for space and the cosmos.
When do you most feel sexy?
After I finish a tough workout.
How long does it take you to get ready for the day? And what’s your process?
It depends on the day… if it’s a meetings-all-day-and-dinner-at-night then I’ll take an hour: 30 min to pick out an outfit that I can wear all day, 30 min to do hair and makeup with lasting power because I probably will only have time for touch-ups. If it’s a running-errands-and-working kind of day, then 15 min.
What’s a strength and weakness of yours?
Strength: I’m a workaholic/ Weakness: I’m a workaholic
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Silly, Loving, Perpetual-learner (I know that’s two words but I put in a dash, so that qualifies)
Just by looking at you, what’s something we would never guess?
I love dancing, like America’s Best Dance Crew style stuff. I used to be on a competitive hip hop team! I still miss that.
How do you want to be remembered?
I want to leave this place knowing that I left it in a better state than when I came.
