You feel the most comfortable when wearing….
Joggers and a bomber jacket, although now it´s getting too hot for that, damn. I will get myself a kimono soon…

If you weren’t living in Berlin where would you be?
I’d love to live in Tokyo or somewhere in the northern Japanese countryside, but I think I would be found in New York City first.

What song reminds you of Berlin?
There is no song that actually reminds me of Berlin since this is not the way I listen to music. However the psychic TV Batschkapp recordings give me a certain feeling here, as well as Sea Oleena. uhh, or Black Kray…chaotic songs.
