Buenos dias, sweet thangs! You may have noticed from the photos that I’ve transitioned from a long-board to a skateboard! This new development came about a few months ago when I was gifted a skate deck from my buddy Chad Gluckson (one of the raddest guys I know in Austin). I’d been wanting to learn basic skate tricks for more efficient street commuting for some time but wasn’t highly motivated to buy a regular ol’…

My apologies for not posting in quite some time, lovelies. The reason for this (besides the sweltering summer heat) is because I’ve really taken issue with how disconnected and unrealistic social media has made the world seem. It’s had me really examining my motives of why I post what I do, if those motives are in line with my integrity, and if I’m truly adding value to the world. So naturally I’ve gotten a wee…

  Swimming has to be the most quintessential activity of summer. A reprieve from the heat (especially in Austin), a chance to float and flow away from all the baggage of work week’s past, and the ability to willingly induce melanoma (unless you lather in SPF Pale, like I do). And what better way to get to the pool than to skate to it? And in a cute Free People summer dress no less! The only thing missing was one of…

  It’s been far too long since I last posted but it’s also been a while since Austin saw clear, blue skies! For those of you who don’t live in the Midwest or more specifically, Texas, I’m sure you saw on the national news how incredibly gnarly the storms were here. To make matters worse, it pretty much rained for the entire month of May, so that ruined any longboarding plans I made….and we’re not talking light…

One of my favorite spots in Austin is the top level of this parking structure located across the street from the Austin Capitol building. Its location is the perfect vantage point for taking in all the rich history and beauty of Austin; from the architectural awe where our state’s politics are conducted in, to the hustle and bustle of downtown, to the incredible sunsets over Lake Austin. It’s nice sometimes to just be above it…

I love the outfit in this set because it represents contrast; my absolute favorite philosophical topic to discuss despite being the constant recipient of its discomfort, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. But even more so, the  contrast that exists within me. The cotton is a respectful bow to the polite, perpetually punctual, super detail oriented, systematic, rule-following, unwaveringly loyal, responsible, dependable, constantly growing me. The leather is a hard salute to the (only sometimes) bad ass, risk…

Of all the things I miss about the west coast, I miss the ocean most. It has by far been one of my greatest teachers in life. Its vastness, and unabashed mood swings, constantly changing yet always the same. One moment excruciatingly beautiful, inducing tears of joy in the broken hearted, and the next moment, ripping the euphoria from the happiest person on the planet and instilling a fear that renders them speechless and shaking right where they stand;…

  I’d like to introduce you guys to my very special redheaded puppy pal, Ziggy, whose name was appropriated from David Bowie’s famous album in 1972, although his name would be equally as cool had it been appropriated from one of the Marley sons (one love, mon). And although I called him a puppy, he’s anything but. In fact, if we convert his years on earth into dog years, he’s actually older than that Bowie album…

      It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? We were unable to get a set up last week due to my travels to Tucson, Arizona for a friend’s wedding. While I was there, I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Romo Tonight Live show as The Sartorial Skater. I got super nervous and could barely speak (mainly because my mouth completely dried up due to the anxiety), but Romo was a stellar host and…

Happy SXSW, guys! I think the last of the cold weather is finally on its way out, so this might be the last post you’ll see me with sweaters and jackets. I’m both sad and happy about this. Either way, we had a great time shooting this set downtown. The passer-bys were intrigued not only by the photo shoot itself, but also by the fact that I was skating, which is exactly why I started this blog. I’m…
