— What are three interesting facts about you?
1. I am also a musician. I’m the bass player of the rock band Husky Loops and have been touring all around with them for the last 4 years.
2. I collect ancient Japanese Ukiyo-e prints
3. I once took part in a Paul McCartney music video with Kate Moss dancing on a cube right behind me and Meryl Streep sitting in the corner of the room chatting with Peter Blake.

— Who is your favorite entertainer?
FKA Twigs, her album Magdalene really moved me, I’m in love with everything she does and I admire her truly unique artistic vision.

— Your most embarrassing moment?
I was playing a show in France with my band and I had a few drinks. Ended up showing up on stage to a cheering crowd having forgotten my bass upstairs in the dressing room. I waved at the crowd, turned around, and ran back up the stairs to pick it up while my bandmates were laughing like crazy.
