Spotted at: 19th and Blake streets, while exiting Beta.

Profession: Marketing director.

Favorite film: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Hunter S. Thompson's writing is biting and hilarious.

2013 jam: "Stache" by Zedd. I'm really into EDM (electronic dance music) right now.

Style inspirations/icons: I'm from Las Vegas and moved here a year ago for my girlfriend. My style is influenced by all of the lights and colors of the Strip, that sense of excitement. Also, I like timeless men's fashion from Frank Sinatra and Humphrey Bogart.

Favorite accessory: I love ties, but tonight I guess it is this glow stick, or flashing light tube. I got it from an event in Vegas.

Favorite color: Yellow and red.

Style mantra: Always have fun when it comes to your personal fashion. If you are having fun, you'll feel confident.

Shops at: everywhere. I like to shop at Top Shop, Macy's, H&M, Ben Sherman and Express -- pretty much anywhere I can find nice clothes.

Style analysis: Keller show how to inject some excitement into classic menswear pieces. He pairs a simple, black skinny tie, blazer and Converse sneakers with a bright yellow button-up shirt and neon-colored light stick.

He makes his wardrobe fun by adding a pop of color and a flash of light that is reflective of his hometown of Las Vegas. But while Vegas and Sinatra may influence his style, he combines them in a new way for a timeless menswear light show.

When dressing, Denver, remain honest to your hometown and your heart.
