I met Michael with my late friend Alani Cruz on a trip to photo galleries in Shinjuku and he is also the boyfriend of Phuong Nguyen an earlier Visual Interviewee who appears in a few of these answers here. I can relate to the “when you are the happiest answer” that i took away as being with your girlfriend and dog. Found the favorite person photo in particular striking because of the light that highlighted the sentiment. Check out his links below:
