How would you describe your style?
My style fluctuates frequently. Generally speaking, I wear whatever the hell I feel like. Sometimes I feel like rocking bright day-glo colors, while other times - like today - I opt for foresty green and brown. I’d say I tend to oscillate between muppet punk and dapper bindlestiff, and nearly everything I wear comes from one of East Oakland’s illustrious flea markets.
What's your typical work outfit look like?
Fairly common fare - pants I stole from my girlfriend, a comfortable quality t-shirt, a fantastic/ridiculous coat, and (most importantly) a hat with plenty of character.
How do you upgrade a typical work outfit?
One of the many benefits of working in tech is that I am seldom obligated to “upgrade” my outfit. That being said, I’ll tend to throw on clothes made by any of my designer friends and pair it with a snug fitting leather jacket if I’m looking to appear less scruffy/poor.
