What were you doing when scouted? I was lingering around the farmers market. I’m actually looking for my girlfriend and her dog.
Describe your style: I was a Lawrence hipster, and then I moved to D.C. so I had to calm down.
Fashion trends you love: I like that things have been better tailored lately.
Fashion trends you hate: I’m not on-board with the whole ath-leisure thing.

What are your favorite and least favorite things about Lawrence? Lawrence is a really nice escape from D.C. It’s so nice to be able to stroll quietly around town and not be mobbed by people. My least favorite thing is the turnover of people. On one hand, it keeps things fresh. On the other hand, you can’t come back and find all your friends because they’ve all taken off.
What’s your spirit animal? The marmot. They look very self-possessed and like they enjoy life. But I kind of suspect that they primarily exist as tasty morsels for mountain lions.
Whom do people say you look like? It’s been ages, but I used to hear Robert Pattinson and Daniel Radcliffe.
Tell us a secret: I’m just going to keep secrets secret.
