What books are on your nightstand?
I’m a Kindle guy. I’m reading Only Love is Real by Dr. Brian Weiss. I’m also reading Loving What Is by Byron Katie and Viktor Frankl’s, Man’s Search for Meaning.
Who would you like to share a beer with?
Kevin Spacey. I was watching him on Facebook the other day talking about his experience in the Middle East teaching a class to all women. He really gets the human component of the impact you can have on someone else. It’s profound, I think.
What pair of shoes could you not live without?
I wear the Native Apollo Moc all the time.
What is your motto? Keep it light.
If you could hire anyone, who would it be?
I’d like to do a designing mosh pit with Jonathan Ive from Apple. And if the laws allowed it, I’d like to hire a 10-year-old to design shoes for us.
What would people be surprised to know about you?
That I lived in the Philippines for three years when I was a kid, that I designed a restaurant that’s been open for 10 years now and I have a cherry, apple and pear orchard. We’ve given apples to the food bank over the years. So, yeah, I’ve had my hand in a few different pies. I’m very curious.
