22; Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn; originally from Manhattan. Filmmaker and half of the artist duo Mike and Claire with Michael Bailey-Gates.

How do you describe yourself?

I’m an artist working with film, performance, costumes, colors, and stories.

What would you like to do?

Keep making work, performing, moving. One day I want to be able to fund a residency for young artists and people who need love. I’d like to be remembered as the girl who got everyone dancing at the retirement-home party.

What turns you on-creatively, romantically?

Everything? People are nuts. Music is special. California drives me insane in the best way. I love colors, humor. Boys with lines shaved in their eyebrows—that’s a plus.
