i’m from a town where there weren’t bookstores and sports is a big deal, so i didn’t discover design and its adjacents for myself until after highschool. ironically, i spent a memorable amount of time familiarizing myself with the human physicque through mannequins while playing under racks of garments located inside my mother’s boutique. i often forget i was admitted into several notable private schools as a youth. i attended none of them because my father felt extracting “the youthful best” from the community is/was a form of communal destruction. as of writing, i’m only interested in working with open-ended agencies/brands where efforts and resources are spent advancing and/or creating the status quo.
