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’…

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.

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…
