What do you do?

What don’t I do?! I sincerely do what I love and through Zen Garage (my latest and perhaps last project) I’ve found a way to combine all my passions into the one project where I’m free to promote whatever it is I’m into at this very moment.

Where do you live?

I live in Maroubra Beach, Sydney. Moved here over 10 years ago now (was previously living in the city). Very much in love with the sunlight, fresh air and sleeping to the sound of waves crashing.

What inspires you?

Family and my upbringing mostly. I’m a child of the 80’s. All the stuff my Dad was into when I was a kid I’m into now. Cars, bikes. I was a skater in the day and still love skate culture today. I used to be in a 3-piece rock band in university and still play the guitar these days. I’m also really inspired by Japanese culture (I used to do trips to Japan every year as a kid as my parents did business there).

Does what you wear reflect your personality?

I don’t think so. I used to wear it on the outside when I was younger. Heels, leggings, dreads. I wasn’t quite punk, or goth, just somewhere in between. These days I tend to wear only black, white or grey and I very rarely wear anything with prints on it (unless it’s my own Zen merchandise which also only comes in black, white and grey).

What article of clothing can’t you live without?

That’s a tough one! Probably my black Levi’s 510’s.

What are the style trends for 2015?

Personally. I think much more black and white. People just look better in it. When I see kids wearing my Zen gear they 100% look better in it that wearing T’s with cars or bikes on their chests (sure I love cats but I’m not about to wear a jumper with cats all over it).

Is there an "Australian style for men" and if so what does it mean to you?

I’m guilty of it myself, but it’s overwhelming how many guys just revert to wearing a T-Shirt, jeans and sneakers.

Got a beard? What’s with the Beard?

I don’t have a chin, so I have a beard.

Favourite place to eat?

Various Japanese owned and run restaurants around Sydney, Kensington Peking; a Chinese restaurant owned by a chef that my family has followed since I was a kid, Buffalo Dining Club, those guys rock.

Where are your favourite places to shop?

Online, mainly, but always buy loads at Evolve Skate Shop on Chapel St. in Melbourne.

What music are you listening to?

RÜFÜSSBTRKT and I like shooting and working to Flume Remixes on Soundcloud.
