What's your favorite trend in fashion? The urbanization of preppy attire that Tommy Hilfiger launched back in '96. It's getting big again. Or pastel, bright colors. I like that a lot.

Tattoos/Piercings? I do not have any. How boring am I?

Favorite coffee shop? La Prima Tazza.

Favorite bar? It's really dependant on the day. I like Quinton's a lot. Or Red Lyon. Or I can be really classy and say the Eldridge.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? A roller disco. Nice restaurants that are relaxed, like a piano bar. A roller disco/piano bar, if they could somehow combine the two.

What would you like to see less of? Rich kids that are closed-minded-the ignorance of the rich.

Who are your fashion influences? I like the clothing company 10.Deep a lot. I like Ralph Lauren. I think they do really good, simple design. -that would probably be one of my inspirations.

Tell us a secret: I think Michael Bolton is kick-ass.
