Where are you from?
Atlanta via Stone Mountain

Who do you work for?
Esperanza Atlanta

What are your Current Project(s)?
Workin on several projects at the moment. As always, trying to keep things fresh with new threads from Esperanza. Our insane section at Hawks playoffs games. We just put a massive showcase on at SXSW in Austin with Fadia Kader and SMKA and can’t wait to plan for next year. Ocha La Rocha has some new music coming out with Esperanza artwork adorning their wax. Got some things in the works with Aleon Craft…..and the list goes on. Let’s just say it’s about to get “multimedia.”

Who would you love to work with? 
The way it’s going, I just love to work with anyone and everyone who works with us because they realize our talent and respect what we do and how hard we work to get it done…or The Beastie Boys.

If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep? 
The Adidas Campus sneaks that I have had since 2002…love those things. I don’t even remember what the original color was, haha.

What’s on your iPod right now? 
Mumford & Sons, Broken Bells, Mos Def, Avett Brothers, Handsome Furs, Johnathan Boulet, Collective Efforts, Jamie T , Madlib, Animal Collective, K’naan, Murs, Felt, Michael Jackson, King Tubby, I-Roy, Outkast, Beach Boys, Rancid, Junior Murvin, M.

What’s your Favorite ATL food? 
The Varsity

What’s your Favorite ATL hangout? 
Depends on my mood, The Local, The Clermont, Leon’s, The Brickstore, The Star Bar, Bart’s Condo

What are your Pet Peeves?
People who win on a scratch off ticket and think that means that they don’t have to go to the back of the line, people who walk around with their bluetooth on and don’t realize that nobody gives a shit about their conversation. Why you gotta talk so loud?
