Tell us about an artist, curator, activist, or project that has influenced or inspired you?
I am inspired by people who have sacrificed so much to make people’s lives better by trying to make the world more equitable. I use art to create a world where everyone has their basic needs and rights met.
Tell us about a place in your neighborhood that is meaningful or special to you.
I live in the Rockaways specifically to be close to the boardwalk. It is affirming to see people of all ages and from all walks of life, engaging in various activities. Most of the people in the community value this space and work hard to maintain it.
