Relationship status: Yes, I’m in one.

Hometown: St. Joseph, Mo.

Time in Lawrence: A couple of years

Occupation: Sales manager

Dream job: Probably anywhere from an archeologist to college professor or artist

What were you doing when scouted? We were out getting olive oil for my girlfriend’s parents.

Describe your style: Probably that of an alternative country musician. For work, I dress classier.

Fashion trends you love: I like pea coats, v-necks and I’m a bit of a texture person as well. I like dressier shoes so I love leather soles on boots or a nice pair of wing tips. I also like jeans that are slim but not skinny. Clothes have to fit my personality for me to like it.

Fashion trends you hate: The whole hipster thing to me is a little too much. I don’t have anything against it but it’s not for me.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? More (diverse) food (choices) like Nepali or Ethiopian food. There’s a good Korean restaurant called O Café that I like.

Less of? Nothing comes to mind

Tattoos or piercings: None

What type of music do you unwind to: Stephen Stills, Ryan Adams, Jackson Brown to Weezer, Gillian Welch and classical music like the Tree of Life.

Tell us a secret:

I heat up towels in the dryer for my girlfriend’s cat. They love lying on the warm towels in the morning.
