I was supposed to be named MacKenzie but pops didn’t want me to be called ‘Big Mac’.

He was a Navy Pilot, so from a young age I had traveled most of the country, and learned to make new friends quick.

I picked up the upright bass in elementary school and never looked back — something about jazz music seemed rebellious to me, and I couldn’t follow my brothers footsteps and play soccer.

I earned the rank of Eagle Scout at 16 and hiked over 600 miles during my time in Scouts - but I’m most proud that I can get from Marcy Ave to Broadway Lafayette in 25 minutes or less.

I graduated high school and applied for the Coast Guard Academy as a legacy with high grades. I was a shoe-in — until I didn’t get in.

I’m blessed to work on brands like EA and adidas where I use my outdoor survival skills and musical talents regularly.

My Hours:
9:00am-5:00pm (art directing)
5:00pm-8:30pm (filming)
8:30pm-12:00am (making clothing)
12:00am-1:00am (buying clothing)

Pops seeing me for the first time after returning from war. (I'm the small bald head next to my older brother) I guess you could say this was our first family photo.
