WHAT’S YOUR HUSTLE: Repurposing furniture, wrangling up anything I can to make things. Collaborating with creative people on design projects. Being a true craftsman and artisan.
WHAT DOES YOUR HUSTLE MEAN TO YOU: Designing and trying to figure out how things work from the inside out. Being grateful for everything I have — all the amazing people in my life and my family for always being there, guiding me when I needed guidance.
IF YOU COULD HAVE ONLY THREE TOOLS FOR YOUR HUSTLE, WHAT WOULD THEY BE: Integrity, respect and humility
WORD OF ADVICE TO WANNABE HUSTLERS IN YOUR FIELD: Be a leader not a follower. Always treat others how you would want to be treated. Love not hate. Always have a sense of humor, it makes life better. Never leave home without your compass, always trust your gut instinct, and never look back.
