I'm afraid of bats.
3. Life or death situation, pick your favourite film?
John Carpenter's The Thing.
4. Where does your inspiration come from?
The thought of being able to look back when
it's all said and done and be proud of my work.

I'd probably go hang with the Dalai Lama for a bit.

90s era hiphop has a big place in my
heart, but I can honestly go from
Mozart to Meatloaf in one playlist.
8. If you could work with anyone in
the world, who would it be?
I think Spike Jonze would be a really
cool person to work alongside, and I'm
a big fan of his work.
9. Film or digital?
For a sound guy that's more of a digital vs.
analog question haha. Obviously the digital
revolution has made so many things easier and more
affordable, while analog still offers a lot
when it comes to adding character and those
intangible qualities. I think the magic really
happens when you're able to utilize
both to compliment each other.

I tend to walk my own line,
so I'll go with the green pill.
