I would be a musician, travelling the world, meeting people and performing.
 
HC: What advice would you to give your younger self?
Don’t play video games, what a waste of time!
 
HC: Who would you be if you could be a Disney princess at Disneyland?
Pocahontas. Does she count as a Disney Princess? If not, I’d be the first.

Sailboat.

Fu Manchu, that’d be awesome.

Strobe light, wait I change my mind. I want to be a disco ball.

Cotton candy, oh wait no. I want a pizza buffet. Everything in the form of pizza.
 
HC: Name a talent that no one knows you have.
Singing, something like that. When I play guitar I sing.

Adventure, no rom-com. You have to write rom com not romantic comedy.
 
HC: What's your opinion of seagulls?
They suck. Except for the short story Jonathan Livingston Seagull. I guess they kind of clean up our garbage. They have some function.
 
HC: What's your favourite part about Vikes nation?
Meeting new people. Working with Femi.

Dark granite, almost a black or a really dark grey. Fine grain.

Katy Perry.
 
HC: Would you rather be a leaf fallen from a tree, on the ground, potentially travelling the world, living dangerously, or would you rather be on the branch still, 
holding on, but safe, surrounded by your leaf friends?
I want to be flying in the wind.
