What would you like to see less of? Driving. And drama.

Who are your fashion influences? I don't really have any in particular. I am influenced by the '60s and '70s, especially old movies from that era.

Tell us a secret: I am a tree hugger. I named a big tree in South Park Herb and I hug it all the time.
