Pandora

It wasn’t supposed to happen this way, but I’m glad it did. Pandora, at its inception, was designed to be a simple makeup editorial for KISS Magazine to show off the talents of makeup artist  Felicia Sorrells. She brought on board the incredibly talented and diverse model Jewel Thompson and we started getting the shoot in motion. While on set (at the magic loft in Atlanta), my long time genius level fashion designer...

New School Cool

Larry English is one cool ass dude. I’m standing before this mountain of a man… and this quiet funny and really cool dude just looked and smiled and acted like there wasnt a care in the world (and this was BEFORE the NFL Lockout). In the following hours of talking and laughing and working with him I realize that he is not only an avid golfer with an awesome Foundation and a tendency to smile (and make every woman in the...

It was just another day in Atlanta… and then suddenly everything came together.

She reminds me of the female version of Mr. Dos Equis… too cool for words. Her ovular facial structure and dreamy...
