If you could interview anyone (living) who would it be? Robert Downey Jr.

What do you like about writing? Writing is the most official statement we can make, whenever someone wants factual information they look for something in writing. The phrase “Can I get that in writing?” is relevant here.

What issues are important to you? Poverty, education, climate change and government spies (they’re creepy)

What is your ideal future career? I’d like to go into photography in some way, or graduate school and get a PhD in psychology and human behavior and become an adolescent therapist. Same thing, right?

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? I would probably travel to Japan. They make some cool stuff there.

What are your special talents? I’m 6’5”, I can reach high shelves. I make really good popcorn, and try to bike everywhere I can. I’m a professional Photoshop editor, meaning I can Photoshop anything you want in less than a day. I’m an incredibly talented photographer, to be immodest, and I can find my way around any computer or software within 15 minutes.

What do you do when you’re not at school? Photography, biking, sleeping, cooking. Oh, I like drinking coffee too.

What else do you think people should know about you? I’m willing to help anybody out with anything.
