Where are you originally from? 

San Diego born and raised! Though I’ve lived in Davis for college for the last 4 years.


Why did you start working at the DC Center? 

I was inspired by the DC Center’s focus on community support and artistic expression.


What has been your favorite part about working at the DC Center?

I’ve only just started, but I can say that it has been wonderful to have been greeted with nothing but friendly faces.


What is your music anthem? 

For the last couple of weeks it has been Absentee by Jack Campbell.


What is your favorite part about the LGBTQ+ community? 

The desire for authenticity, the subsequent unbounded creativity, and the unconditional support of each other.


What is your favorite spot in DC and what do you do there? 

I’ve only just arrived, but I love the Korean War Memorial. I find the statues to be haunting and disconcerting in a very intriguing way. 


What is your favorite queer movie?  

I don’t watch a lot of movies, but my favorite queer show is called Within the Wires. It’s a chilling and poetic take on an alternate history’s dystopia. 


What color would you paint the White House, given the chance? 

I’m a fan of the classic white, but I would not say no to a holographic effect that displays diverse imagery of the country depending on what angle you looked at the white house from.


Who do you look up to in the queer community?

Yasmin Benoit and David Jay! Both are such influential and integral voices in the aromantic and asexual communities.
