Tattoos/piercings? I once wanted to get a Ford Taurus tattooed on my upper arm.
Favorite coffee shop? I've gotta say Milton's, In Lawrence, but Stumptown in Portland, Oregon is the best coffee I've ever had.
Favorite bar? I love the play drums at the Tap Room. The sound is really natural...as it should be.

Who are your fashion influences? I don't really have any influences, but I love the styles of the mid 20th century.
Tell us a secret: I have a very obsessive personality. And actually, when you scouted me, I was really sitting on the counter at work doing a crossword puzzle.
