“I’m Canadian-Jew, living in Brooklyn! Raised in upstate New York, I started doing drag about two years ago when I moved to Brooklyn. I just really love to transform my face with makeup. Growing up, I always wanted extreme plastic surgery. Not really because I didn’t like how I looked, just because I’ve always wanted to look outrageous. I honestly want to look beyond the human experience. Michael Jackson, R.I.P., was always a facial inspiration to me. He really gave a damn look! Same with people like Amanda Lepore and Jocelyn Wildenstein. So, I’ve always had the desire to look extreme. And although I still plan on getting extreme surgery one day, I’ve found makeup to be a much cheaper alternative. With makeup, I can become the human cartoon I’ve always wanted to be. That being said, a lot of my inspiration also comes from the cartoons I watched growing up… characters like Donald Duck and Lola Bunny really played a huge role in shaping my personal beauty aesthetic.
As for the future, I just want to keep exploring how I can transform my face in different ways…keep pushing how big and extreme I can go. I’m also writing a children’s book about me and illustrated by me! So, y’all go have babies and teach them to read!”
