Describe your style.

Comfortable yet presentable and ready for most occasions.

Describe San Francisco style.

San Franciscans embrace a more down-to-Earth lifestyle. People dress for real life, but that doesn't necessarily mean we don't have style.

If you had to live anywhere else, where would it be? 

That's a tough one because I love the Bay Area's balance of city and nature. In 30 minutes you can get out of the city and into so many beautiful places. Access to nature has become a very important part of my life. Most other cities don't appeal to me in that way. One part of me would love to go full-on hermit-style in Big Sur.

Top 5 San Francisco spots.

The Front Porch for fried chicken. Lolo's for tasty Mexican bites and Mezcal. Welcome Stranger for clothes. Jay'n Bee Club for an old-school SF vibe, cheap drinks, and great pizzas. Mixed Nuts in the Sunset for midcentury modern furniture finds.

What 3 things are you most obsessed with right now?

Probably would have to be my beautiful fiancé Angela along with my two duges (dude/dog), Oliver and Rye.

Up next?

I recently moved into a new studio space, so hopefully all kinds of creative energy will come with that. I'm exploring new directions with my painting and incubating the idea of a clothing brand, called Nopal, with a friend of mine.
