How did you come up with your clothing company?
Well I had a clothing company years ago just wanted to test the waters so to speak did pretty good but I had a few life setbacks that allowed to take the time out and refocus. So I was with a friend of mine who is actually apart of the company and it was like that light bulb going off and I just knew it was a for sure thing as if the man upstairs said this is it soon as the name came to me the ideas starting overflowing and that’s how this journey began.

Do you have a public figure that you look up to?
I have a few for all different reasons just to name a couple Sean Carter aka Jay z my business mentor the best to ever do it his story of self explanatory. Lebron James the underdog in my opinion the best basketball player period been a fan since he was at st Vincent st Mary Reggie williams my close friend NBA vet the most honest guy who keeps me focused I owe him a lot but most importantly and the biggest would be My father he would be the main person I look up to you wanna talk about a man with vision a man with faith that’s him always had my back always been there one tuff you know what with a heart of gold yea my pops is that guy.

Any words of wisdom for the future generation math at want to create and become entrepreneurs?
The main key to anything is being positive no matter what life throws at you. When nobody believes in you believe in yourself. Surround yourself with good people that will tell you the truth even when you don’t wanna hear it. Want something done do it yourself don’t ask nobody for anything you can do yourself and if you think you can’t do something learn it so nobody can say they did anything for you. Keep the faith pray and go hard everyday it will pay off. Trust me.
