How’s 2015 been? Any major highlights?

2015 was the year of growth for me. After 24 years of life, I finally understand that being true to yourself is certainly the key to being a successful human being. 
Major highlights included traveling to St. Lucia, Nashville, Chicago and Brazil, for work opportunities.


What song have you got on repeat at the moment?

From the top of my head I can only remember these three. This is what my gym playlist looks like 
- Follow (FlicFlac remix) by Charming Horses ft. Jona Bird 
- Simple (feat. The Floozies) by GRIZ and Lost You (feat. Twin Shadow & D’Angelo Lacy) by Zeds Dead 
- Show me love (EDX’s Indian) by Sam Feldt

What’s the most important thing about a guy’s style to you?

The most important thing about a guy to me is sharpness.

What fashion advice do you have for a man?

Always wear clean shoes. It’s the first thing I look at in a guy. Always dress to impress. The Iron is your best friend. Focus on the details (lapel, etc)


1 tip to grow your Instagram account

Focus on picture quality and post frequently.

What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?

Lime green suit.



Any major plans for 2016?

Lot’s of traveling, including London, Switzerland and Paris. That’s all I can say 🙂

Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?

It has to be between Nick Wooster and Blake Scott.
