What were you doing when scouted? I was looking for Pokemon games.

Describe your style: I take a lot of influence from street wear/fashion, including ’80s punk rock.

Fashion trends you love: I know a lot of people don’t like branding, but I think Nike is pretty decent... I also like how everyone likes to rock oversize sweaters and T-shirts right now.

Fashion trends you hate: I don’t like the fitted sweatpants look. Everyone looks great in it but I just hate it!

Fashion influences: I have a lot of friends who dress well. I also take a lot of influences from the ’70s punk era, late ’80s, early ’90s and even the Fader (magazine).

What would you like to see more or less of in Lawrence? I want more acid-washed everything. Less paisley Doc Martens and buildings owned by Doug Compton.

Tattoos or piercings: None, but I have a (silhouette of) a tomahawk branded on my arm.

Whom do people say you look like? With the moustache and strange mullet thing that I have going on right now, a few of my friends say I look like a character from a John Hughes’ film.

What type of music do you like? Modern hip-hop and math rock.

Tell us a secret: I fall in love at least two times a day, and at least half the people I fall in love with are strangers.
