What do you hope the audience leaves with from watching your piece? I hope the audience leaves feeling as if they have witnessed a full arc in terms of the story telling my piece attempts. Additionally, I hope they leave with as many questions as answers, along with the urge to see it again.

What is your most marked characteristic? I will try to make a joke out of any situation. Moreover, I become interested in many different activities quite often which causes me to cycle through hobbies rather quickly.
