Where is home for you? 
Collegeville, Pa (just outside of Philly). I’m from Philly & the Men’s Style Pro office is there.

If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? 
I’d love to go to Japan. My dream is to venture through Shabuya and take in all the food, style, art & menswear.

If you could only have one pair of shoes, what color would they be? 
Snuff Brown Suede

Podcasts or audiobooks?
 Podcasts. I really only listen to one regularly – Monocle 24: The Entrepreneurs. I’m thinking of starting my own soon called Precision Notes

Extroverted or Introverted? 
Extroverted, with some introverted tendencies. 

If you were a dragon, what would you hoard? 
Maybe cashmere. So that when I’m laying atop of it, there’s a highly level of comfort. If not that, gold!

Tell us about one person who made an impact on your life.

My mom, Jacqueline Peele. She passed away when I was 11 years old, but, the time we spent together was filled with life lessons. She was also one of the most stylish people that I personally had the pleasure of knowing. One of the biggest lessons are learned from her was about working hard without the expectation of being recognized.  

Tell us about one place that made an impact on your life.

North Philadelphia had the greatest impact on my life. I’d love to say that attending Central High School or Ursinus College was that one place that impacted my life the most, but, growing up North Philly had the greatest impact. There’s a hustler’s mentality that can only be honed there that I’ve taken into every situation and opportunity that has come my way.

Do you prefer to learn from other's mistakes, or make your own mistakes?

I prefer to make my own mistakes. This isn’t to say I go blindly into situations where people have trotted, not knowing of what went wrong for them. But, there’s an understanding that my way could be the solution to a problem.
