Nov 2009
I was born in a hurry. My friends and family are consistently surprised by the odd and curious things I find on the internet. I have this curiosity about things. I never watched cartoons I watched Discovery channel and those Sunday afternoon documentaries on PBS.

When I was eleven my parent's bought me a chestnut horse named Andy. He wouldn't let very many people ride him and he was scared to jump. We won reserve champion after waiting around all day in pouring, miserable rain. It's still one of my proudest accomplishments. My parents sold him that year and bought my brother a saxophone.

I have an insatiable need to open closed doors and pirate treasure chests. I'm addicted to ice cream, classic American muscle cars, high-fashion, green architecture, intervention, hoarders, ponies and puppy dogs.

What is unique that's not in your bio?
I am hopelessly addicted to ice cream
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Being alive
How do you define cool?
Being open to new people and experiences, stylish, funny, confident and completely comfortable in your own skin.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
I can't tell or else it wouldn't be a secret now would it?
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
The randomness of the finds. Makes for hours of surfing.
What is your favorite trend?
Mohawk Heels! I know it's my trend, but I'm quite obsessed with them at the moment.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Find something newsworthy, something with a story behind it. Or something so completely absurd you must click it to believe it.
How do you reset to be creative?
I clean my space, sing all the words to sappy love songs and take dance breaks, many dance breaks
What inspires or excites you?
Weird, curious things. New innovations, inventors, entrepreneurs, new ideas, ice cream
Predict something awesome for 2020?
It's not too far off, I'm going to say the Whale Blimp will be floating around. Perhaps we will have special candy that you eat and as you digest it gives you an overall health report from tiny sensors that will pass through unknowingly into the sewer system and then give us reports on the crap we eat so companies can sell us more we can crap it out?
