About you: I consider myself a “lifestylist,” a designer and a fabricator. Currently, I’m a fabricator at Kreater, one of Canada’s largest custom motorcycle shops. I am also a co-owner/designer of LA-based clothing company Style Design Rock Roll. My interests are broad but my focus revolves around design. Whether it be with a sewing machine and fabric or metal and a welder, I am always happiest when building, creating and designing.

About your pet: My dog’s name is Brando. He is a Rottweiler and is my best bud. Brando is very well-mannered and has an incomparable demeanor. He’s extremely friendly with all other animals, people and children. With that being said, he is definitely an attention-seeker mixed with a healthy dose of brat.

What’s your personal style? My style is a fusion between high-end rock ‘n’ roll chic and a dirty, grungy motorcycle street style depending on the day, the event or my mood and frame of mind. I have the ability to easily adapt my style to most circumstances.

What’s your home style? I live in an artistic style studio/loft that is decorated with industrial sewing machines, motorcycle parts, music equipment, barn board shelving and tables, black leather couches and 60s style vintage lighting. My loft converts from a stylish living environment to a functioning studio where I do most of my clothing design.

What inspires you? As an artist, I find inspiration in everyday things. However, I do find a great sense of inspiration in witnessing people who are completely unafraid of being themselves excelling passionately at what makes them different. Individualism is inspiring.

Tell us a pet story. I remember when Brando was just a pup I was only able to sleep when he slept. One day I was taking a quick nap while he was chewing on a bone. I figured as long as I could hear him, he would be fine. However, while I was dozing off he traded in his bone for my brand new Blackberry. As I awoke, I noticed a trail of little rubber letters that led to a very smiley Rottweiler with a mouth full of destroyed phone parts. Of course, nothing was backed up; it was a very sad day in phone-land.
