What/who is your daily style inspiration?
My wife!! Not your typical answer I know, but when I get up and get dressed, my wife is the first, and frankly the only person I want to impress. If she gives me the compliment, or the stroke of the collar or suit jacket, or the sexy eye when I am dressed, I am good for the day!
In the mornings, which item of clothing do you start with to build the outfit of the day?
A nice pair of clean underwear!! (emphasis on clean) After that though, I may start with the blazer.
List three things most people would not know about you.
- I used to be an avid skateboarder (can still do an ollie)

- I was born at Wellesley Hospital
How do you want your work to impact those around you?
I don’t know if there is any one word to describe the impact I want my work to have on people around me. I want people to see the need to change their lives, because my life was changed and is changing. I want my work to show God off and not me. Too often we work and play for self-glory and gratification, in fact that is easy to do. I want to work and play to glorify God and however that impacts those around me, so be it.
We all have that suit/jacket/pants/shirt/tie colour combination that never fails...what’s your go-to colour combination?
I have had several of those types of combos over the years. What comes to mind most recently are the purple/pink shirt, khaki corduroy jacket and grey thin striped pants.
In an attempt to find you if you went missing, how would your spouse describe your style in 3 words?
Tall Dark Chocolate….wait what was the question?
Do you dress well for you or is it a lasting impression that you want to make on those around you?
Both. I want to dress in such a way that if I am in a “priority neighborhood” or I am walking in the Bridle Path, I will be addressed with respect and dignity. My clothes help to determine if I am a man trying to live out my boyhood, or if I am a man embracing the stage I am at in life. I will always have class, let them boys have swag!
Here is your chance to pen a profound style quote...let’s hear it!
"It’s not what you wear, or who you wear, but whose wearing it and how they wear it."
