What do you actually do all day?

True really hard to convince people that kindness is badass. And that they should find my Facebook page.

Favorite song growing up?

1st fav song was "Red Red Wine" - Ub40. Then a series of 90's alt (thanks to big sister) but actual / **ales strong love for pop music + Hoobastank :/

My biggest secret is…

I worry, a lot!

Where do you live in San Francisco?

Wanted a change from Chicago, needed a challenge (I got it!) + Full House + love of art made SF a long time dream of mine.

Uber, Taxi, BART or Bike?

Walking + Lyft... or Uber, if I must.

My motto is…

Work hard + be nice to everyone

My alter ego is…

Someone with hot pink hair who fights injustices, probably in a vegan leather "cat woman" outfit

The last drink I had was…

Vodka soda with cherries

My secret crush is…

Broke-Ass Stuart (not too secret though). Also, Dave Grohl + hockey players (most of them)

What was your first job?

Slangin' ice cream at Custard Time.

If you had one day left to live in SF, what would you do?

Be a super tourist for part of it, then spend the rest in weird underground art + culture events.

Coming from? Going to?

Should this be philosophical? Taking actions behind the scenes... to now in front! Literally though, to meetings.

What is your favorite work of art?

My love for art is large. So much has moved me at various points in my life. So hard to narrow down.

Who should we know?

Matt Micale - artist in Asheville, NC
