- What’s the importance of a creative/performative culture important to (NY, America, Globally, Locally…)?
It’s important b/c w/o it we probably would not make any money and eat right. We like making money and eating right.
- What do you hope an audience takes away from your work?
We hope the audience really understand what it’s like to grow up watching VR Troopers and sporadically listening to Keith Sweat.
- How do you think having a Poet and/or Artist as a teacher can affect what/how someone learns?
We all saw what happened when Morgan Freeman/Sam Jackson/Robin Williams/Julia Roberts were teachers in movies. They got things done and inspired people. That’s what counts.
