Writer. Lover. Poet. VISIONAIRE.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I'm extremely perceptive. I like to find out how things work. Especially the human mind. I like to know what makes people tick, why people dress the way they do, talk they way they do, buy the things they buy.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Losing over 100 lbs, changing my body and mind at the same time.
How do you define cool?
Cool is anything fresh, untouched and uncharted. Cool is that concept that sounds crazy in your head, but looks pretty good on paper. Cool is taking a dive head-first in unknown territory knowing all the while that like-minded people will get it. Cool is everything that mass appeal is not.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
My phone comes pretty handy. With the right apps, finding trends is a breeze. Hardest part is posting them before someone else does...
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
The interface is pretty to look at, easy to interact with, and the red definitely catches your attention.
What is your favorite trend?
Several come to mind...anything Android-related would probably score high in my books.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
You have to love what you're writing about. If you do, it will show in your post. Take your time; quality over quantity. Go for consistency.
How do you reset to be creative?
I think that the mind is one's most powerful asset. Harnessing its full powers is the only way to see success in every aspect of life. I like to read, meditate, and work out.
What inspires or excites you?
The fact that anything is possible through consistency and what I like to call "intelligent application." Why work hard when you can work smart?
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Dirt-cheap water desalination, organic cars?
