In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?
Nature, especially the ocean, inspires all that I do. I look to wild creatures for lessons on survival and resilience and care that I take to heart, both in the work I make and the life I lead.
What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?
It is an honor to live on this planet alongside so many other human and nonhuman animals, and I hope to provide as much care as I can for all of us.
