Age: 37

Relationship status: Married

Hometown: I’ve lived in all four corners of the U.S.: I grew up in Florida, lived in Atlanta, L.A., Boston, Oregon and now I’m right in the middle here in Lawrence.

Time in Lawrence: One year

Occupation: Architect with the workgroup sisyphean.com

Dream job: An architect is my dream job, but if I were to get paid to do something else it would be a writer.

What were you doing when scouted? Having coffee at La Prima Tazza.

Describe your style: I make my own clothes. I feel better and more comfortable when I’m wearing my clothes. I like details like putting fun buttons or zippers on (my clothes).

Fashion trends you love: There really aren’t any (trends) for men’s clothes. The only thing you can do with men’s clothes is to add little details. Fashion-wise, I would rather be a girl because they have more fun. I like patterns a lot, not just plaid.

Fashion trends you hate: People who dress like they just rolled out of bed. People have no shame anymore about how they dress.

Fashion influences: For making stuff, I look for fabrics that jump out at me or seem special. I like to shop at Sarah’s Fabrics. With men’s clothes you can’t do crazy silhouettes and stuff so you’ve got to find interesting fabrics to make the same old stuff out of. I like to make an outfit that is more like a collage.

What type of music do you unwind to: If my wife weren’t around, probably metal. I find it pretty immersive and relaxing. But we usually listen to jazz when we’re cooking.

Tell us a secret: This is fun. This is the first time someone has interviewed me!
