Please explain what just happened.
I was born. I am living. What else could have happened that mattered?
What is your earliest memory?
Sinking my head into the water with a mask and snorkel and being transported into a different world, among the rocks and fish, swimming in 3 feet of water. That’s the day I fell in love with the ocean. I can’t remember when it was, but I will never forget it.
If you weren’t a filmmaker, what other profession would you choose?
Photographer, oceanographer, or both.
Please describe the current contents of your refrigerator.
Things that swim, things that grow on trees and things that grow from the ground.
What verb best describes you?
Passion. Oops that’s not a verb. Wish it was…Then it has to be “inspire.”
What would you say to yourself if you could go back in time and have a conversation with yourself at age thirteen?
I’d say: “At some point, it’s possible that your future self is going to come back in time and want to have a conversation with you. Don’t listen to him. “
What are the steps you take to regain your composure?
From what or whom do you derive your greatest inspiration?
From life’s beauty and magic, when I have time to see it. Otherwise, from artists like Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Andrew Wyeth, who had more time and talent than me to see it.
What change do you want to be in the world?
That which inspires.
Are you pro- or anti-emoticon? Please explain.
Mixed feelings. Sometimes 🙂 and sometimes 🙁
How are you six degrees from Kevin Bacon?
I might be less than six, I live in Hollywood!
What makes you feel most guilty?
It’s not Haagen Dazs, believe me.
Please list three things you never leave home without.
Two ears and one mouth, so I can listen more and talk less.
What is the worst piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?
“That girl is no good for you.”
What is the best advice you’ve ever given to someone else?
The one that was never followed.
What do you consider the harshest kind of betrayal?
Anything coming from somebody you thought was a real friend.
Of all the game shows that have graced our TV screens throughout history, which one would you want to be a contestant on and why?
That’s a hard one. I’d have to watch TV first.
What do you want to know?
What would you like your last words to be?
I love you.
Please explain what will happen.
I leave that one to the universe.
