Best gig you've been to?
So many...how does one choose?
Radiohead at Coachella and SB Bowl were pretty Epic. Bjork in NY. And being taken by my oldest friend since childhood to see RY X perform a show at Hollywood Cemetery also was pretty epic....it was my first time hearing his music and I had no idea what a treat it would be - he lit the whole space with candles - beyond!

What are some of your environmentally friendly practices?
Eating organic, consciously sourced, local and or home-grown whole foods. Composting. Reducing waste and avoiding plastic as much as possible. Wearing natural fibers, naturally dyed or recycled clothing. Living with the intention to leave spaces more beautiful and healthier than when I found them and a commitment to educate myself on what else I can do to make a positive impact.
What do you think about the state of the environment?
Extreme sadness, respect and hope. My prayer is that Earth's resilience and intelligence will be stronger than our human impact/insanity, and teach us how to live in harmony with nature before we wipe ourselves out completely....not sure how this story ends.
Where do you want to be in 10 years?
Home, standing barefoot in the sunlight, in my garden, in love with my life.
