First, I want to thank anybody that used their time and or energy to make this concept happen. When I sit back and thing about the number of hands we had on deck to make this run smoothly, I'm humbled. From design and producing the clothing, to shooting the lookbook, to the blogs that posted, to the performances, and my amazing food sponsor - I'm really grateful by the love and support.Read More
My good friend KJ Kearney [@H1gher] visited Charlotte during CIAA Weekend to speak to the Solefood Digestible Sneaker Culture course being curated at Johnson C. Smith University by Professor Jemayne L. King [@Solefood]. I had the pleasure of first, witnessing the lecture in person and second putting together a slight recap of his presentation. I'm glad I was able to throw something together despite my compute troubles the last two weeks. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy - If you need any video work I'm always accepting inquiries through my company site: theFeatherbed.com.
A few days ago I became hip to a monthly compilation curated by a California based producer - DJ named "Ele" [@deejayEle]. My good friend Yohance Carter aka @VibeSounds, a Detroit based producer, was featured among four others including Ele. As I continue to push myself creatively I noticed nothing really helps more then great music. As I was entering the creative space I needed to be in mentally for the Psuedo Collection I felt how certain sonic vibrations effected the outcome of my work. I had never experienced this before and now I'm continually on the hunt for new tunes to bang as I work. I'm definitely going to keep track of these Culture compilations. Much love to Ele for putting these together - You can track them and download from the Culture Soundcloud page by clicking the photo above. Stream Culture 002 below! - Peace!

I've spent my first two years out of college trying to figure out exactly what it is I want to do. I've worked in corporate america, dabbled in entrepreneurship, and even assisted others in the creative and entrepreneurial journeys. For now I've taken on the mindset to pursue happiness (within reason).Read More
