What would the title of your autobiography be?
“Tales from the Little Vampire”

A camera, because I have big eyes and a bad memory, and Emergen-C, because I have a weak immune system.

Indonesia

If you could choose one person to show you “their New York City,” who would it be?
Oscar the Grouch, because I’m really curious what’s down there.

Who has inspired you recently?
Damon Albarn. I went on a trip to Ethiopia with Africa Express, an organization he’s part of, and I’m really inspired by how he moves from project to project, with no geographic or cultural boundaries.
