How’d your passion for menswear start? 
If you live in SoCal, you know that most people do not really pay that much attention to their outfits or how the dress up on a daily basis. The menswear culture in California is actually a bit backwards. If you go out wearing a tie and a blazer you stand out – and not in the good sense. I think this is one of the reasons why I began dressing up and developing a personal style. It is not every day that you see a Latino dressed up rocking knitted ties and cropped pants.

What are your goals as an influencer?
The idea is simple. Convey the message that dressing up is simple, easy, and affordable. Specifically, I want my audience to know there is more to the legal field than fat ties, heavily padded blazers, and baggy pants.

How would you describe your personal style? 
Corporate modernity. It is all about suiting up, while also adding bold accessories like colorful tie bars and printed pocket squares. I definitely am not your typical corporate America peon. My motto is “Dress-up smart, not hard.”

Explain your outfit: 
While I like to make bold statements through my outfits, I’m still a sucker for the classic colors, hence the navy and grays in my outfit. Yet, I like to add that modern twist: bold tie bar and socks, along with texturized pants and suede shoes. The Court of Style is adjourned!
