Growing up in a historic city such as Houston, which childhood memories stick out to you the most?

As a native Houstonian, I distinctly remember growing up, always wanting to go to Six Flags Astroworld. I can still hear the sounds of roller coasters flying over me, the smell of funnel cakes, and I can still feel the nerves it took to talk to that cute girl while entering the park. Astroworld defined most of my teenage years. I was highly upset when they tore it down. To make matters worse, they haven’t built anything on the land since then.

Entrepreneurship is a pathway filled with risk and reward that few are willing to take. Explain your first experience with business and entrepreneurship.

I’ve always had jobs, but I’ve always found ways to make money through business. Fashion is something that I’ve been passionate about throughout my entire life.

“Don’t let money burn a hole in your pocket,” to discourage me from spending every dime…

In 2001–2006 I was living in South Florida. At the time, I started to experience anxiety, which I wasn’t aware of.

Have you always been creative in the form of media and technology?

Everything for me started at the art table in school. My mom used to get mad at me because every time she checked my mailbox in school, it would be full of paintings. As a kid, and even now, I’m introverted, but I’m encouraged by others around me to socialize. Being creative at such a young age was a way for me to be productive and different, and I’ve been doing it non-stop since then.

You became an entrepreneur before…
