Where do you get your fashion inspiration from?

When I was first learning about fashion, I drew my inspiration from magazines like GQ. Over the years I have realized that I really love Parisian designers like Saint Laurent and Ami and pull a lot of inspiration from them. I’m also a huge basketball fan so I love to see what the top athletes like Lebron James are putting together. Their outfits tend to be a mix of high fashion designer pieces and casual sneakers, which matches my personal style.

How do you make time for yourself?

I’m a big believer in “work hard, play hard.” Having a good work/life balance is essential in my lifestyle that’s constantly on-the-go. Thankfully, I love what I do as my job. Most of the time work doesn’t feel like work.

Now tell us about your favorite pieces from Pierre Cardin Watches

My favorite Pierre Cardin watch is the Belleville Park. I love this sharp and classy design, but with little twists. These unique details makes the watch very versatile so you can wear it any place or occasion.

What do you love most about your career?

Most people don’t know this about me, but I studied accounting and worked at Morgan Stanley and Barclays before starting Levitate Style with my girlfriend, Alicia. I love that I get to be my own boss and wear many hats throughout the day from creative director to photographer, stylist, the job description goes on and on. I also love that I’m able to represent the Asian community in a positive way. I really love teaching guys how to dress better and inspiring others to travel more in life.

Have you ever been to Paris? What is your favorite part?

Thankfully, I’ve visited Paris multiple times both on vacation and work trips. Paris has become one of my top favorite cities to visit in the world. My favorite part is taking in and appreciating the effortless Parisian style in the architecture and vibe of the city. Whether you’re people watching while enjoying a coffee or wine, nothing feels like Paris. There are so many amazing historical sites and museums to visit it’s impossible to choose a favorite.

What is your favorite timeless piece in your closet?

I always say you can’t go wrong with a high quality leather jacket. My Saint Laurent Chelsea boots are another favorite piece.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

It’s hard to predict the next 5 years because 5 years ago we had just started Levitate Style and I never envisioned the career in social media I’ve built. All I know is that I will continuously push myself to be the best version of myself and keep inspiring others to chase after their passions.

Gold, Silver, or Leather?

I love all 3 so it’s hard to choose! For me it all depends on the occasion, but for the majority of the time
I would have to choose leather.
