Age: 32

Profession: Account director for the Integer Group; freelance style writer for GQ and other publications.

How you would describe your style:
I like comfortable yet refined silhouettes that are distinct but not too flashy. I do like having a standout piece, whether a cool pair of socks and/or sneakers or an out-there outerwear piece. I’m always down for having something that pops a bit without screaming, “Look at me!”

The part of your style you’re known for: My shoes. I have a wide array of sneakers that I wear any chance I get, and they are usually highly visible on me because my pants are most likely cropped.

Hobbies: Is it too obvious to say clothes and sneakers? I have always had an affinity for clothing. How they’re made. Who’s designing them. And, most importantly, how they fit my style and aesthetic. That’s also why I think my obsession has afforded me some amazing opportunities to write for publications I have absolutely no business writing for, like Complex and GQ.

Biggest priority: Family is the most important aspect of my life, so the more time I get to spend with my wife and son, the better. I’m kind of a homebody.
