Had a candid conversation caught on video at the St. Regis Atlanta with a few Creative Colleagues about cultivating a personal brand story and leaving a lasting impression... If you lead with your brand and your brand is strong, the success and money will always follow.

I'm in a BMW i3 Commercial!

•••
Pretty cool to be in the 2104 BMW i3 Digital Short Commercial. Was fun shooting this - rocking a black SuitSupply suit. Gave me chance to explore a more conservative, clean look. The brand/studio's goal was for me to be styled as a Techy Accountant or Lawyer - I hope we accomplished that!

Slipped into Spring

•••
Spring has to start with a colorful foundation... The lime/olive Deltoro Slippers paired with my favorite Ernest Sewn denims and a mustard, herringbone double-cuff shirt, with the sleeves rolled up... Kinda cool to see how colors complement; because the mustard shirt looks more olive and vice versa and at first I had no idea if it would work til' I just t[...]

LA Life

•••
I always look forward to my trips to Los Angeles; friends, fun and sun all-in-one. The weather and vibe there is more laid back and lends itself to the leisurely luxury look. My style is completely based on feel, so it can go urban, cosmopolitan and nautical in a three-four day span... That's the beauty of expression - no one expression is the same. I ble[...]

Miami Life

•••
Enjoyed a trip recently to my second home, Miami and as always, I really enjoyed my stay. From Atlanta, it's a quick flight and when my good friend and colleague, John Vasquez invited me down for the weekend I had to oblige. It's still 40's in Atlanta, so the the sun and 80 degree weather for my Miami trip gave me a early start to explore some spring/summer [...]

Crisp Spring.

•••
It feels good to just go Classic. Nothing like a clean white Oxford button-down and denim. To make this look my own, I added a few simples accessories: vintage-looking pair of Gant Rugger tortoise shell aviators, a natural woven leather bracelet, by Accessories Closet and a red Ralph Lauren belt. Threw on the cognac Deltoro Slippers for the finish. &n[...]

Moschino's London Fashion Week Invite

Chalkstripe DB, Type of Night

•••
When I went in looking for a new winter suit, my good friends at SuitSupply Atlanta recommended to me this chalkstripe, peak lapel, double-breasted one from their Winter Collection's Purple line. It was a heavier weight wool, so I paired it with a textured wool tie and a neutral shirt. Threw in the pocket square and wingtips for the finish.  The strip[...]

From the St. Regis to STK

•••
I went from the St. Regis to STK Atlanta to celebrate my Veuve Clicquot Magnum Mondays Dinner Party Birthday experience with friends and family 1.27.14. Was a night to remember...Fireworks and confetti! Suit, Shirt and Tie by: Suit Supply Cheers, Champagne Jesse

Fatigue Finish.

•••
Stayed with earth the colors/tones, but tried my best to make this look my own with garments by Banana Republic, Zara and dressed it up with wingtip shoes by Hugo Boss. Your stylistic imprint should always be bigger than the trend.
