You do a lot of exciting work centered around performance art. How did you first get involved in that medium and how has the experience of working within it changed for you over the years?

I got involved when I came to a performance event hosted by a friend in 2015, I didn't understand it at all but it looked like something I wanted to do and so I asked if I could be in the next show. I've only been performing regularly for a little over a year since, I'd say the biggest changes have been that now I actively seek out opportunities to perform and I know enough about myself as a performer to have more of an intent about the body of work I want to create and explore.
