1. Most memorable show/event/concert and why?
Drake at the Hammersmith in London. I was living in London for 3 months, immediately prior to that I had to do a last minute job on a dissertation, fuelled by Drake on repeat.
2. You have $50 in your pocket on a Friday night out – where would you go?
Bike to the gym, and then Dom Road for some dumplings, bus to the city in time for Snort, Uber to GD.
3. If you were to produce/create a show, what would it be about?
I think Auckland is going through an interesting phase. For the first time, we have a generation of people seeing the potential in this place becoming a vibrant city and not just a big sprawling town. I’d create a production telling the stories of young Aucklanders growing up in this urban scene.
4. Favourite piece of art/object/rock?
Monet’s prints of the Palace of Westminster. Brings out the anglophile political geek in me. Something inherently dark and alluring about that fog.
5. One sentence to describe the arts, culture, and events scene in Auckland?
Fledgling, innovative and less claustrophobic than Wellington!
