Where are you from? What do you do?

I’d like to call myself a multi-talented entertainer. I’m from Brooklyn, NY (Bed Stuy “Do or Die” or now it would be looked at as “Do or Dye”.

How did you hear about BeGreat Bow Ties?

From the creator himself Thomas. He’s a good friend and I also helped draft the logo for the brand, so I’m glad to see it building and even having a small part in the startup process.

What does the word WXLF mean to you?

It is identity. It is how I represent my style and how I choose to express the persona of who I truly am through my entertainment, but also become enough of a character for there to have a sense of fantasy to it.



How long have you been wearing bow ties?

I’m actually not a big fan of dress clothes. I like to be dressed for manly but I don’t like to get dressed formally, if that makes sense. I think that I have a very interesting body type for that kind of fashion so I stay away from Forman’s wear. But I do like ties here and there. Bow ties are more my style of course.

Who are your style influences?

My style comes from hip-hop, cartoons, art, life and just personal taste. I wouldn’t say I do things to make people turn their heads. If I see something I like I want to wear it.

What does being GREAT mean to you?

Being great means to be the best version of yourself in all aspects of what you do. It means that even when you do not feel great you can still possess and exude greatness. It’s not just a feeling it is a state of mind and it can be obtained at any time if the right mindset is applied.
