What would you do differently to what you do now?
I would be better at saving my money!

Who inspires you and why?
I get inspired by any person who is creative and shows obvious passion ,which leads them to success. Also, people who put themselves out there with no fear of rejection or criticism.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
I would like it if people would just be nicer to each other all around, so I try and treat others as I want to be treated in hopes that it gets passed along.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
I love going to North Cyprus. The weather is amazing and so is the food, It’s beautiful, the water is clear and warm and It’s not too congested.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
I like to take them to local bars with good music usually because that’s what I enjoy doing myself. I love live music.

What are you currently reading?
These interview questions – but the last book I read was an autobiography by the American punk band NOFX.

What are you currently listening to?
I listen to anything and everything. I love punk, hip hop, folk, rock etc.. but I have been listening to a lot of M83 on this tour.

Happiness is?
To me happiness is anything or anyone that makes you laugh and feel good about yourself.

What does the future hold for you?
I’m not sure and it scares the crap out of me but that’s healthy.
