1. I like when you said "carousels are where all walks of animals in life coexist in the parade" Lives and customers don't fit in categories anymore don't you think?? 
I honestly dont know who the customer is anymore ahahahahah. I go to my 18 year old brother for anything and everything. I think I know what "cool" is till I have a talk with him and then he puts me in check and reminds me that Im not cool. The Categories are all over the board these days! BUT I also like that because you actually have to work and figure things out.
 2. I still remember, the first magazine that made an impression on me as a kid I still remember the first magazine for sure. It was called "BIGTIME" it was an LA based graffiti magazine that I would wait for EVERY SINGLE month to see some graffiti and Hope my stuff would make it in there. BUT I sucked so it never did LOL..
 3. My high school years involved a lot of A whole lot of House parties. And trying to hook up with girls. Sound about right ?. It was High School, Not much to do but that where I was raised.
4. Now I get to work with All my mentors and Friends. Being in an industry that I grew up in is fun. Its always really cool to watch all your friends succeed and hope that you are next in line if you work hard enough. 5. I have a crush on A gentleman never tells. Lets just say the woman I have a crush on is in my life and brings a smile to my face every day. 6. I now live in I live in Los Angeles Ca! the best place on Mars!!.. 7. The evolution of a brand is quick. When one problem goes away, one pops up and vice versa. What has become harder and what has become easier since you started? Believe it or not! NOTHING becomes easier. You are always trying to figure out how to get to the next lever or the next venture. I find it actually harder once your brand is out there and people see it. Alot of people judge and can shatter your whole life with one comment. I try to not always listen to people. If you believe in your product keep pushing and it will work. People didnt believe in RVCA when Pat Tenore was the first "action sports" brand to come out with a 30 single T-shirt people thought he was crazy and everyone had something to say! Now you don't see one brand out there without a 30 single shirt or better yet you dont see one brand out there not trying to be the next RVCA! Im just glad Pat Tenore is one of my mentors and has become a father figure in my life and guides me.
8. What do you think about social media ? Over saturation or an outlet? I think INSTAGRAM has taken over the world! I love it. I think its helped me out alot in my career. I also know if my mom is using it and talks about it all the time then you know it has a huge impact. I look at social Media like music. When a band has your parents talking about them and a 13 year old you know you have crossed over and made a huge impact. 9. If you had to compare yourself to a man/woman in the past who would it be? My mom. If I can be half the person she is in a few years I would know I did something right. 10. If you could leave us with one thought, what would it be? to learn these words "Too Many Clowns! Not Enough Circus!" look out for CRSL were coming for you!.
