We like to think that time is the most precious resource that we have. What time do you cherish most?
Time is the one resource that we wish we had more of, so I spend the majority of my time creating. Creating memories with my son, experiencing the wonders of the everyday world (getting outside for at least 30 minutes and just walking), creating content that I connect with and tell stories through my platforms and for others.
Like many people, I try to stay in shape (former athlete mindset), eat well and love the people and things aroud me that bring me joy
Time has a wonderful way of showing us what's important. What things have you come to value more over time?
I’ve learned that over the years, my happiness is extremely important. Happiness within relationships, work and with myself. Coming to that revelation came with a fair amount of bumps in the road, but, all-in-all a tremendous amount of life lessons and love of growth came out it.
To our product development team, luxury craftsmanship and innovation are the foremost influences on our watch designs. Where in your life do you find the most creative inspiration?
As you know, menswear is my number one love and designers like – Michael Bastian, Angel Ramos, Virgil Abloh, Pharrell William & Ralph Lauren are my go-to for traditional menswear & streetwear.
But, I’m always inspired by architecture, furniture street art and sports. After being fortunate enough to travel to London, Italy, France & Greece and being able to take in how style permeates different cultures has always kept my eyes open to different design inspo.
Lastly, I’m always inspired by music. It’s one of the driving forces in my life. Artist from Kanye West to Carole King and beyond inspire some of my style choices.
What do you like most about your Mondaine watch?
One of my life rules is that a man should always wear a watch. Being on time is a high sign of respect for others and yourself. Mondaine makes my watch choice easy most days because of the clean design of the Railways is extremely universal.
My wardrobe is a serious mix of tailored menswear to sportwear and my Mondaine watches have a chameleon-like way of making each outfit look better than the last.
