What was your first big break into industry?
Moving to London and assisting at TANK Magazine and GARAGE Magazine were definitely my first real intro to the industry. Not sure about a big break. I have that syndrome where I never think I’m successful.
How do you prepare for new projects you are involved in?
Depends on the project I guess, but I like to take one project at a time and focus on everything properly instead of a million things on at once.
What is a biggest difference that you've noticed between London and LA?
LA has money.
How being from small town has influenced your style?
I'm not sure really. I think its made me not follow trends because I was never really exposed to actual fashion? Also i just like being comfortable whether my outfit is shit or not and i think that definitely comes from where i grew up
What do you like the most about thrift shops?
Thrifting is actually my life I love the customers, the staff, I get really high off finding things I like for cheap.
Which shopping spots would you recommend? I’ve got lists of every thrift store worth going to in pretty much every city/town I’ve visited.. wouldn't know where to start sorry. :)
