Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Oh, I don't have a motto, and I don't read maxim ;) Really, life is too fluid for me to pick one motto and stick to it. I adapt.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. I loved Elphie in Wicked, but her villainy was revealed as compassion. I like that, the complexity. No one's ever 100% good or bad.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. You're looking at it.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Thinking I know best even when I don't, probably.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Is flight a talent? I guess it is if you can fly really well. More realistically, I've always wanted to be able to paint.
