'I share a birthdate with Arnold Schoenberg. This is a fact completely random and also curious. Curious because I also seem to share an aesthetic outlook with Schoenberg in that I try to manipulate the formal elements of the medium I work in to achieve a satisfying effect. Satisfying in the sense Emily Dickinson meant when she said that she knew she was in the presence of real poetry when she felt “physically as if the top of my head were taken off”. That’s art.'MS, 2019
