If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
Eggs, you can eat them any time of day and can prepare them in many different ways…and I figure I could let some eggs hatch and then have chickens.
If you were a laminate, which would you be, and why?
I’d say silver. It’s a basic foundation, but you can layer on infinite combinations of printing and finishing techniques to create something amazing.
If you were an animal, which would you be, and why?
I’d say a crow. First off they can fly, and who wouldn’t want to fly. They don’t take any crap from hawks and are also one of the smartest birds in the world…did you know they can recognize human faces?
What’s your best travel story?
I lived and worked on a sheep farm on a small island in New Zealand, Waiheke Island. I also traveled around the entire country top to bottom, climbing mountains, hiking up glaciers, canyoning, cave diving, snowboarding, surfing one of the best left waves in the world and surfing down sand dunes, and basically jumping off anything and everything you were allowed to.
What do you like to make?
I like to grow vegetables in our garden, but mostly it is making anything with my two girls especially using plenty of old paper samples!
