I’m 16 years old. I live part-time with my mom, Anne Cushman, in Fairfax, CA, and part-time with my dad, Lou Hawthorne (“Pod-God”) and my step-mom, Song, in Mill Valley. I have a cat named Tahini who brings us small dead gifts at night, and two dogs: a clone named Mira – 73 pounds of mostly goodness – and Foo-Man, a border collie puppy. I’m a junior at Marin Academy in San Rafael, and am especially interested in music (especially guitar), theater, math, creative writing and climate change. I’ve also been studying mixed martial arts for the past 12 years. Just ask if you want to know more!
