What’s your least favorite thing?
Nothing. I really like it. I feel really grateful to have a house. I don’t know —it’s on the 4th floor. The idea of paying rent.

What are the three things you'd save first in a fire?
My talking-Moses ring, that I made. I would save my laptop, even though it’s five years old. That’s it. And my cell phone.

What’s your favorite room in the space? And favorite time of day?
I love to take naps—no—I like sitting here. Wherever the bunny is, I like being there. I like sitting here by the window and thinking I’m gonna get a lot done. I like right before sunset. It’s really, really, really nice.

If you suddenly received a windfall of cash, what changes would you make to your space?
I would try to buy the apartment. Honestly there’s nothing I need. I’ve tried to set up my life where I work for other people as little as possible. And I feel really grateful for that. The idea of working five days a week to pay rent and never having time to appreciate your apartment is a really sad reality.

If you could move your house/block/neighborhood to another city, which one would it be, and why?
It would be Southern California. Because of the climate. Or it’d be Northern Florida.
