recently got into drawing and graphic design even though I was never artistic
What's your latest obsession?
The art of tattoos and art itself

I don't own much of great value but wouldn't want to loose my two dogs!
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
I really looked up to my mom, she raised my sister and I almost by herself and gave us a great childhood.

My girlfriend last night...
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Awkward, Shy and Weird
Describe your personal style:
My style has to do a lot with button ups, cut jeans rolled up for shorts, tattoos, 50's greaser leather jackets with cuff jean. Some dad style sweaters with the collar showing from the button up and jackets.
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
The Big Lebowski—Scene: When the character is being followed in his car and tries to flick his roach out the window but lands in his lap freaks out , pour his beer on his lap then crashes causing his eyeglasses to tilt on his face while he is dazed by the whole scenario!
Your favorite sport:
Team: L.A. Dodgers
If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?
Los Angeles, California—The art district in downtown to show you some cool areas to eat and all the amazing graffiti on the walls and people watch to see all the different styles.
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
The show would be about music, style and skating all mashed into one. Theme song is The Ego-Nicolas Jaar & Theatre Roosevelt.
Your wish for the remainder of 2014?
I would wish to get my dream job designing logos and the bottom of skateboard decks while modeling still.
