Probably my favorite word in the English language. It’s what some of us strive for, design for, blog for, and live for. When asked what super powers I would want, at age 13 my answer was the ability to influence. Putting my ideas and designs out there and giving the people what I feel is missing in the market place feels great, it’s one of my greatest achievements. Having people react and actually wear my designs is where the influence kicks in. The message I’m trying to relay to the public lies with my designs; a combination of quality, uniqueness, and getting people their dollar’s worth. Everyone’s influences are different, but if you think about it long enough you’ll see that nearly everything we do is directly connected to influences that others had on us. The question is why am I so concerned with influencing people? I don’t have the answer, but I’ve never wanted anything more. What role does the word play in your life?
