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’…

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…

  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…

Austin’s weather has definitely contended with Seattle’s lately. We’ve had so much (record) overcast and rain the past year that the days the sun does come out is kind of a huge deal. So as you can imagine, I was thrilled on the day we got to shoot this set – we had slipped out of 30 degree weather with high winds just days prior. We wanted to check out the Boardwalk Trail at Lady Bird Lake (aka Town Lake) near downtown, which…

  Hello! This is my first (official) post for The Sartorial Skater! I’m really excited to share these photos with y’all, especially because they were shot at the HOPE Outdoor Gallery in Austin, Texas. This gallery is special because it’s a three-story education art project AND one of the largest of its kind in the United States. The project was developed to provide muralists, graffiti artists & community groups the opportunity to display large scale art pieces driven by inspirational, positive & educational…
