Here I am! In the new Vogue September issue!
Growing up reading Vogue and being a middle class nobody kid from the 'burbs, you would never imagine you'd one day see yourself in one of the world's biggest fashion publications. I mean beyond that, you could never specifically imagine why or how you could be in it, but I'm proud that it would be my merged love of skateboarding and fashion that would land me a spot in the most important issue of the year.
Vogue contacted me a few months ago to work with seven American designers - Diane Von Furstenberg, Alexander Wang, Narciso Rodriguez, Olivier Theyskens, Rag & Bone, Thakoon, and Tory Burch - to create decks based on a print story from each designer's Fall 2012 collection. It was an honor to be asked by Vogue of course, but the greatest source of pride is being profiled in association with the sport of skateboarding. It's given me a lot so I'll forever give back.
