Tell us about some of your upcoming projects in 2012.

I do not have any upcoming projects for 2012 other than this film project. But, I did just come off an 18 month endeavor the culminated in a nine hour continuous overnight outdoor performance at the 2012 Northern Spark Festival on June 9th from 9pm – 5:30am. I am also preparing to present a work for the Walker Art Center Momentum Series at the Southern Theater in July, 2013.

 If we were going to spend a day hanging our with you in Minneapolis, what would we do?

We would go to Minnehaha Falls and climb up to to the forbidden area and watch the water from the back – a gorgeous and unique view. We would then climb down and get ice cream from the store and then bike through the winding trails up to Lake Nokomis and hang out at the beach and play with the water. After that we would have chai at my place and take a nice long nap.

 What is your favorite drink and where do you get it?

My favorite drink is a cafe mocha from the Southside Cafe.

 Tell us something surprising about yourself.

I spent three semesters learning Norwegian in undergrad.
