Where are you from?

Who do you work for? 
My own self

What are your Current Project(s)? 
We’re working on a few Brand Identity  and advertising projects for Coca-Cola, a new website for the fashion designer Catherine Malandrino, a new brand identity for the Migrating Forms film festival in NYC, just wrapped up, as well as the BeDo name and identity. We’re currently diving into new projects with Creative Capital, and Basil & Sons, a men’s pants line.

Who would you love to work with?
We’re lucky to collaborate with so many great people already –  you and the Epidemik Coalition team, Armchair, Ignition, plus a whole bunch of folks in NY. As for clients, we want to be the creative resource for a handfull of social and business entreprenuers.

If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep? 
I’ve got some old lo-top leather Chucks that look like Japanese nurse shoes. No one can figure out what they are exactly. They’re perforated like a bandaid, super slim soles, and no markings.

What’s on your iPod right now?
Bumblebee Unlimited, Sun Ra, Djeli Daouda Dembele, Fleetwood Mac, and Willie Nelson.

What’s your Favorite ATL food?
When Im in Atlanta, I turn into a “lady who lunches”. I’m all about a loaded dog or a shrimp po-boy from Star Provisions… topped off with soft serve icecream with a little olive oil and sea salt.

What’s your Favorite ATL hangout?
Porches with swings, BBQs, house parties, and The Center for Design Study.

What are your Pet Peeves?
People who sit around and mope.

Shout outs?
The entire Son & Sons Family, especially Jeff, Ryan Jessica, and Alena.
