Would you rather every dog in the world be replaced by giant crabs or giant bats? Please explain your answer.

Both sound terrifying, but I think I would prefer to have giant bats. It might be cool to have a giant bat as a pet and ride it around like a dragon or something, assuming they could be domesticated.

If you had to watch one movie from start to finish every day for a year what would it be and why?

Maybe Office Space? Mostly because it's short and I'm lukewarm about it. I wouldn't want to watch one of my favorites and end up hating it or watch a movie I already hate over and over.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?

I draw my inspiration from my every day life and the people in it. I'm also inspired by the infinite nature of my own mind and my place in space and time. I'm inspired by my circumstances, good or bad. 

What was the intention with this latest album Bashful?

With Bashful I definitely hoped to be a little more understood, to be a little more of myself, and be a little more venerable. I also write with the intention to grow. Writing is therapeutic for me and never fails to be quite the journey of self discovery. I get to shed another layer and get a little closer to my essence.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be (doesn’t need to be music related)?

Teleportation would be so amazing!

Any final comments?

Drink water! Be nice to each other! Give a shit!
