Hometown & current home
Born in the UK, formative years spent in Paris, adolescence in Portland, Oregon, adulthood in Los Angeles… Tomorrow, the moon!Occupation
I’m the lead singer/co-conspirator behind the pop group YACHT
. My partner Jona and I make music, videos, apparel, apps—really whatever seems like an interesting project to take on. I’m also editor at large of OMNI Reboot, a reinvention of the classic ’80s science magazine OMNI, and I write for lots of different publications on culture, science, technology and science fiction.Musician, science writer, app designer—any other hidden talents we should know about?
I make a mean old-fashioned.
Let’s play a little either-or: “California Girls” by the Beach Boys or “California Love” by Tupac?
Not going to make any friends by saying this, but despite my undying allegiance to all things West Coast, I always preferred Biggie to Tupac. So, in this case, I choose the Beach Boys.Your best-kept LA secret?
The thing about LA is that everything good is a well-kept secret. That’s partially why Jona and I made our app 5 Every Day
, which gives people five interesting things to do in Los Angeles every day. Not just shows and events, but things like hikes, strip-mall ethnic food and forgotten fragments of LA architecture and history.
Speaking of forgotten fragments, do you remember the first pair of denim that you really loved?
There was one pair of denim overalls that saw a lot of wear in the early ’90s. I was a tomboy as a kid—still am now to a certain extent—and I remember never washing those overalls, taking pride in the increasingly threadbare knees and accumulating paint splotches.Photography by Bryan Derballa.
