On being discovered…“Pursue your dreams and have no fears. If you spend too much time in the planning phase it can take away from progress you could be making and your evolution as an artist. Make your path.”
Creative Process…“I sketch all the time. I always keep a sketchbook with me so I can work whenever I’m inspired. We all have deadlines. Don’t let deadlines limit your creative process. Don’t be afraid to do your dreams.”
Must Have Styling Product for Men…“Aveda Men Pure-formance ™ Grooming Clay.”
Artistry Evolution…“Sometimes I recognize growth in the moment. As an artist it is good to look back on your work and examine what you have learned. I look back at some pieces I’ve designed and see things that I could have done differently and it inspires new designs. My approach is to embrace challenges because inevitably it is part of the process. Be prepared to fail because that is part of the learning process. Use what you’ve learned and be prepared to learn along the way.”
