WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST MEMORY?
My brother being born. I was nearly three.

WHAT DO YOU DO BEST?
Create, and critique.

IF YOU COULD RELIVE A DAY OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
A family holiday in hawaii; we spent this particular day climbing a volcano and ended with milkshakes in a diner. the memory and the feeling it brings me makes me happy whenever i look back.

A QUOTE YOU LOVE?
"A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:It's loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness; but still will keep a bower quiet for us, and a sleep full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing." 

This excerpt is taken from the poem “Endymion” by John Keats and I refer to it in my mind whenever I dwell on something beautiful... I believe true beauty is timeless.
