Occupation: Substitute teacher, DJ and musician in The Noise FM.

What were you doing when scouted: Hanging out at a laundromat. I’ve got a washer and dryer; I just like to watch things spin around.

How would you describe your style: Preppy indie rock, but more Britt Daniel of Spoon than Vampire Weekend.

Who are your fashion influences: If I had money, I would dress like Robert Downey Jr. in perfectly tailored suits all the time.

What are your favorite fashion trends: On guys, I like lots of layers. On girls, I like excessive accessories.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence: I’m perfectly content with Lawrence.

What would you like to see less of in Lawrence: Anonymous posters on saying negative things, and potholes.

People say I look like: When I substitute teach, kids say I look like Peter Petrelli from “Heroes.” I also get Johnny Depp, Peter Pan and slightly sleazy actors in general.
