What neighborhood do you live in?

I live on 12th and Santa Fe in the Santa Fe Art District. I have been here for 10 years.

Why did you choose that neighborhood?

It is close to everything. I love it!

What are your favorite local spots?

I am a coffee connoisseur and a foodie, so my favorite places tend to be centered around coffee and food. I enjoy Crema, Metropolis, Steam Espresso BarHuckleberry Roasters, and Thump Coffee. I also love Steadbrook on Broadway because they have integrated great coffee with great clothing and created a welcoming atmosphere for all. For eats, I enjoy US Thai, El Socorro,  Pho Duy, d’Corazon, True Food Kitchen, and Anecdote Smoothies (an all natural food truck). I work out three times a week at Push Fitness, often working with Heidi and Ryan who are wonderful trainers. I also like to spend time at Indy Ink, Sneaks, the Stars, and Mayan Theater. For shows, I go to 7th Circle, Bar Bar, and Rhinoceropolis.

P.S. We love your vibe? What inspires your style?
I grew up in the metal and Southern hardcore scene which was a combo of steam punk and hillbilly. Being from the South, I practice simplicity and tend to wear ultra-form and practical but well-made, hard-working clothing.
