Describe your style: I've thought about this, actually. I would say more of a Nikola Tesla-era, 19th century aesthetic. This is all from Goodwill. I just take what I find and throw it together.

Fashion trends you love: Suspenders. Definitely suspenders. And suit vests. I will try to wear a suit vest every time I go out. And bow ties. Bow ties are cool.

Fashion trends you hate: Culottes, and Sperrys.

Fashion influences: I don't really find inspiration in specific idols or figures. I suppose I base it off some TV shows — "Peaky Blinders," for example. And Sherlock Holmes — the traditional Sherlock Holmes.

Favorite thing about Lawrence: The lake. Sunrise on Clinton Lake.

Least favorite thing about Lawrence: Frat boys on mopeds. I mean, they can do whatever, but it's just funny to me.

Whom do people say you look like? I actually got Einstein a few weeks ago. I don't agree with that. I guess they weren't accustomed to seeing someone wearing a tie and suit vest to an informal party.

Tell us a secret: This isn't much of a secret, but my best friend is my chiropractor.
