Can you give us an insight into who you are, and what your other hobbies/professions are?
How do you balance a thriving career as a DJ, Stylist and also a Brand Owner?
What are some of your biggest inspirations when it comes to all of your creative outputs?
I am inspired by so much, and it is always changing; menswear, music, club scene, history, women, equality, travel, the West Coast, Los Angeles, Paris, conversations. But there are a few consistent inspirations for me: duality, growing up in the early ’00s and my mom.
Although, I think my biggest inspiration of all has been my mother. Watching her discover who she is, aside from a mother and wife, inspired me to find myself before finding love. It taught me that I can do whatever the fuck I want all by myself. She really made me who I am and taught me how to be a boss. Thanks, Mom
