What were you doing when scouted? Just took Christmas pictures (with my wife and son) at Atomic Photography.

Describe your style: It’s kind of retro and spiffy. I like argyle, rolled-up jeans, Chuck Taylors and stuff like that.

Fashion trends you love: I honestly don’t think about it that much. But I do like the pompadour hair. I’ve been doing that forever especially since swing came out in '98. I’ve been growing a beard for the last few years and the handlebar mustache is new.

Fashion trends you hate: Nothing, really. People can do whatever they want.

Fashion influences: Mostly '50s rockabilly style

What would you like to see more or less of in Lawrence? I love this town! It’s beautiful and great — especially the old houses. Other than that, I haven’t spent enough time to have an opinion on what I’d like to see less of.

Tattoos or piercings: None

Whom do people say you look like? James Van Der Beek

What type of music do you like? Rockabilly style, bluegrass, old swing stuff and punk rock

Tell us a secret: I have six toes on my right foot.
