NOWHERE BUT UP

NOWHERE BUT UP

Welp, last post before 2016, so I guess it’s about that time to reflect on this past year. Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin. I mean, 2015 was pretty eventful, so here’s a not-so-humble brag, tl;dr version…

NOWHERE BUT UP

After postponing higher education for 6 years in the US Navy, I finally graduated (with honors, ayyye) from California State University, Dominguez Hills, collaborated with more brands than I ever thought would be possible (shout out to the homies at Pocket Square ClothingRicher Poorer, Bed StuMatiere, Hudson JeansUniqloM.R.K.T.Zero UV, and GQ), hosted and attended countless shows and events, made some what I would consider to be lifelong friends in the industry, was a groomsmen in two of my best friends weddings (congrats Derek and Samantha, Richie and Siobhan), traveled to New York (thanks Remy Martin), Japan, Austin, and a handful of other places, ate a ton of food (no surprises there), bouldered my way up to a V-5 (only to stop climbing and fall back down to V-3s) at Hangar 18, and as of recent, moved back home. The list goes on and on, but what I believe to be the most significant highlight of this year was growth and development (synonymous, I know, but different none the less).

NOWHERE BUT UP

To say I learned and experienced a lot in 2015 would be quite the understatement, but beyond this blog, none of it would matter if I wasn’t becoming a better person overall. More importantly, none of it would even be possible without all of you. Whether you’re an old friend, acquaintance, colleague, lover, hater, or complete stranger, you’ve played a significant role in my life, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that. Thank you, seriously, from the bottom of my heart.

NOWHERE BUT UP

2016 already seems to be overwhelmingly eventful, but I can’t wait to take it on, and show you what’s in store.

NOWHERE BUT UP

So here’s to another year of growing and developing together. Cheers, FKers!
