    What's your wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?

    Default images of starry galaxies and Yosemite.

    When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?

    An Uber. So I can return home to my weed.

    What's the one word you are guilty of using too often?


    What is the last thing you searched for on Google?

    Non-incognito? “smart phone deadbolt lock comparison”

    Who is the last person that called or texted you?

    My good buddy and even good-er director Phillip Van.

    What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?

    Iquitos Peru: Let a child run around their village with my iPhone to film a Hyperlapse. She loved it. Then wanted to keep the phone. I tried to explain with hand gestures and apologetic shrugs that I needed to leave with the phone. A few hugs, minutes dancing and bartered shirts made everything better.

    When is the last time you went to a theater?

    Movie: Whiplash Performance: Hedwig and the Angry Inch

    What TV show should everyone should be watching?

    Shark Tank. Or Black Mirror. Both, really.

    And what is your TV guilty pleasure?

    See above. Then include The Taste.

    What's the first CD you bought?

    Oddly, or perhaps fittingly, a discounted CD of sound-effects.

    What is the one food you cannot resist?

    Greasy burritos.

    What music are you currently listening to?

    The Dear Hunter. What So Not. Louis Futon.

    What movie makes you laugh the most?

    Airplane. Or UHF.

    What drives you absolutely crazy?

    The illusion of digital-connectivity. And pull-handles on bathroom doors.

    What was your first online screen name?


    What's your favorite emoji?

    Eight. Equals. Equals. Equals. Capital ‘D’. #OldSchoolCool

    Pick one: Kittens or puppies?

    Puppies that chase laser pointers.

    New York or Los Angeles?

    NY Summers. LA Anyotherseason. Copout?

    Comedy or drama?


    Bacon or Nutella?


    Coffee or tea?

    Pry my french press from my freshly-ground-artisanal-bean-stained hands.

    '80s or ‘90s?

    '90s. Because the Internet. And Quake.

    NSYNC or BSB?

    Dirty pop!

    Hannah Montana or Lizzie McGuire?

    Are these Minecraft characters?

    And finally: tell us a secret.

    Everyone is making it up as they go along; distrust anyone who claims otherwise.
