Profession: Artist, painter, singer and poet.
Spotted: Outside of the Central Denver Public Library.
Favorite film: Equilibrium and The Guardian.
2013 resolution: Be more in touch with my spiritual side, and be more thoughtful to be a better person. I kept it broad because throughout the year you realize that one specific goal is never enough to continue to better yourself and improve.
Style inspirations/icons: Every person I come across, because you learn a lot from every person you take the time to interact with. I take a lot away from those experiences.
Favorite color: Yellow, orange and red.
Favorite accessory: My cell phone. I love the dual camera on it. Jackets, shoes, belts and sunglassess are my favorite fashion accessories, though. If I have a nice pair of shades, I'm set.
Style mantra: Every morning I tell myself that I'm going to accomplish what I set out to do that day, whatever that may be. And I say it out loud or I reaffirm it to my friends so they can get on me if I don't do it.
Shops at: Burlington Coat Factory for pants, American Apparel and Urban Outfitters for jackets.
