Interview

Have you ever used a typewriter?

No, but when I go back to Ethiopia next, I am bringing back my grandfather's typewriter which I am allowed to keep.

Did you work for your high school newspaper? If so, what did you do there?

I worked for The Jesuit Crusader, primarily writing for the features and lifestyle sections, but I have designed every section at least once.

What's the most common misperception about your beat?

Hip-hop and rap music is trash and there is nothing more to glean from a genre of music full of expletives and misogynistic language.
