Describe your style: A San Francisco beatnik writer wandering around with Montana cowboys.

Fashion trends you love: Trends that never go out of style. Trends that aren't trends — just style.

Fashion trends you hate: There's no room for hate these days.

Fashion influences: Old snapshots of all of our parents, and Woody Allen movies.

Favorite thing about Lawrence: The community. The people. That room (Love Garden Sounds) is full of incredible people. And the community looks out for each other.

Least favorite thing about Lawrence: The summer heat.

Is there anyone people say you look like? No. But I do look a lot like my uncle Dennis.

Tell us a secret: A gentleman never tells.
