My influence comes from an array of sources and people. From Paris to Tokyo, from Sidney Poitier to Alessandro Squarzi, and etc; I just have so many sources that I pull inspiration from. Though, one of the magazine’s I really learn from and a man that is editor-in-chief of the magazine, is POPEYE magazine and Takahiro Kinoshita. Both really inspired me to start drawing ideas from ivy style and to have a more dapper type of look, which plays some type of role and my daily style. I have no off days, just jean days.

What quote do you live by?
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss
How does your environment influence your style?
My environment influences my style because it makes me want to try new things and stand out from such a homogeneous society. I am from Delaware and mostly everyone does not know how to express themselves and be different, out of fear that they will not be the same as everyone else. I always had a different style starting from high school, as I was tired of trying to blend in. I wanted to be different and not care what anyone thought.
What is your passion in life?
My passion(s) in life vary. I can say I’m very passionate about making art, but I’m also very passionate about cooking, fashion, and even magazines!
