Getting invited out by Ralph Lauren to the new Red Rush Fragrance release was an honor and also a huge surprise with all these incredible cars. They were aiming to make a statement and they sure did. Plus the fragrance smells classic and legendary just like the cars. (Link below)
Get it here : RED RUSH
Growing up an engine obsessed kid, if you would of told me back then there would be an all electric race circuit I would of laughed and said "Yea right". Well it's here and actually already in it's second year.
Partnering with the AUDI Family on this was not only the best experience I could of gotten but it's always great being with a team that has specialized in innovation on the track since day 1 (plus they won 1st of course lol). First off the best thing you can do when you first come to Formula E (and trust me you want to) is throw all your previous knowledge and understanding out the window because this is completely different. I made that mistake coming in thinking this was just a variation of F1 but I was educated very quickly on how many differences there really are.
I talked with Lucas Di Grassi who races for Audi about some of the unique things and obstacles with these cars face. He mentioned that they are very difficult to drive and the main focus point of what he was saying is that battery conservation is one of the main keys to finishing first so it is not only who is the fastest but also who can conserve the most energy. He also went on to tell me about how the cars have no power steering which can get sketchy in the turns.
Another interesting aspect of Formula E is there is very little noise compared to an F1 race. They sound like Killer Bees coming by is probably the best way I can describe it haha. With there being very little sound it has opened the door to many new locations that races can be held because of the noise which was what made this race cool. Seeing a racetrack setup in Brooklyn, NY was simply amazing. The turns were extremely narrow and tight along with a very short track so there wasn't much lag in the excitement. To wrap this up be sure to check the schedule and catch Formula E as soon as you can you will not regret it.

This time I really found something special... A few buddies and I decided to take a "breather" and get out of town for the weekend which I think everyone needs from time to time and this is where we ended up. Situated at around 4800 feet above Palm Springs is this place of complete serenity and solitude. I posted some of the photos to my Instagram and here are a few extra photos as well.
This main entrance way is unlike anything I have seen. The Panoramic view reminds me of when I went Skydiving except this view last longer than 45 seconds lol. Also something else that is cool is the temperature at this elevation in the desert is actually about 15 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than down the mountain in town which is crazy because you would think "closer to the sun must be hotter" but not the case at all...
Another unique thing to mention about this house is it has a small very old Church Chapel a short walk from the house with a Mission Bell that you can ring from the inside. Word has it that every person to ever step foot inside has rung the bell so I also did the honors of course (after checking for Rattlesnakes that may have crept in under one of the booths). Not bad for a quick weekend getaway and I am actively planning more like this at the moment...

Was an absolute honor getting to meet David Beckham and a part of the House 99 official launch party. The stay at The Ned hotel was also something to mention as the pictures do it no justice. They have aesthetically captured what I would believe the 1940’s decor would of been like. I highly recommend visiting this hotel if you have any future plans to travel to London as it will not disappoint.
Simply put this was an experience of a lifetime and was amazing to get to see London in the way they planned the trip. Pure class and elegance.
Ready to open up a bottle and get in the holiday spirit... Gonna make sure to have one neat and ready to go for the big man from up north too 🎅🏽...

Fellas let's be honest... Having a beard year-round can get frustrating and sometimes even unmanageable, but I am writing this to let you know it doesn't have to be. For me the main things I look for in a product is something that is portable, effective and quickly does the job. Many of us keep a shorter beard in the summer months and a lot of other trimmer kits don't come with the right lengths to do short to long clean ups. The Conair Man All-In-1 Trimmer is truly everything you need in one. I find no need to have multiple products because it has and does everything which also helps keep my carry on lighter too.
The beard maintenance process is a ritual in itself. I believe if you have a beard or are considering growing one that you should take time to learn how to take care of it on your own. You will be able to get the exact results you want with a little practice. I always trim my beard before washing it because after I can easily see where I need to make some finishing touches...
A manly truth I would like to share is that I don't like spending more than 10 minutes on a beard cleanup nor do I think it should take any longer so an efficient product is the key here. Let's just say the Conair Man Personal Grooming System will keep you out of the barber's chair... It's a win,win.

Nothing to me is more free than an engine on an open road... This is where I find my peace. Here are a few recent BTS photos of a soon to be released shoot I did in Palmdale, CA.
In the light of the holidays, finding peace can be difficult needless to say, but we must find it. Some escape into sports, hobbies, books, yoga etc., but for me, it has always been my motorcycle and the outdoors. Since I was 8 years old I have always found my peace when I am on two wheels and all my burdens and troubles all go away for a moment... These are the times that TIMEX, who has been around for 160 years, encourages us to find because they are gone before you know it. “Style” and “built to last” are two things I take pride in when it comes to my lifestyle, and that will never change... #TAKETIME
Style also has a huge part to play in what I choose to wear and what becomes my favorite pieces for all occasions. The two factors that "make or break" my interest for me are as I mentioned before, quality and lastly it has to be fashionable. You don't come across many products that share both of these attributes, but when I think of @TIMEX I find them both to be very relevant in their watches. There is definitely something to be said for the ones who created the first watch for the soldiers in WWII... #TIMEX
Enjoy yourself... No Exceptions.
There are a few material items I believe in a person's life that can give you a pretty solid idea of who they are and what they are about. For me it is boots and leather jackets... I enjoy timeless pieces that can be worn everyday and will be worn still when I am old. Everyday I make new memories while wearing these jackets and find that it creates a bond more and more while they become a part of me. These boots pictured above are a great example. I purchased these boots years and years ago right when I really kicked off my career and now they have been all around the world with me. I remember walking the streets of London and standing in front of the Tower Of London on "Remembrance Day" looking at the red poppies representing the Blood Swept Lands. I remember when my Grandfather asked me to be an honorary pallbearer for my Great Grandmothers funeral I wore these boots. I remember walking beside and touching the remains of the Berlin Wall in Germany all while wearing these exact boots and the list really goes on... To become attached to something materialistic which is usually referred to as a derogatory term, actually can symbolize deep emotional moments and feelings. Life is short. Invest in quality things. Make memories and find what defines you and remember you can't put a price on things that will last...
