Having inspiration in art, music, skating, and design has allowed me to express myself in more ways than I could imagine. The imagery that I have immersed myself with over the years was also deeper than what was seen by the eye. I soon realized that the cover told a story, one that I took to heart, carried with me, and embodied. I've learned to release my inner expression through the clothes, shoes, albums, and pieces of art that I have collected over the years. The nostalgia tied to relating myself to these items holds extreme value. I'm able to be a kid again, and I can wear that with me where I go as a reminder of who I am and what I'm inspired by. Expression tells a story, it has a purpose, a meaning..to me the image is just the beginning, the tip of the iceberg. What's underneath us is what really counts.
