Serge Meets Michael

WHERE ARE YOU FROM IN AMERICA...

New Jersey.


WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO LIVE IN THE UK...

It was a family choice to be honest but I’m loving it!


WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN THE UK...

Probably like Oxford Circus and Shoreditch. Whole lot of style and vibes out there. Everybody shows love as you walk around.


FIRST THING I THINK ABOUT WHEN I WAKE UP...

I think about what day it is generally and what the weathers like. 


FAVOURITE SERIES AT THE MOMENT IS...

I gotta say, Prison Break!! It’s like my 8th time watching it to be honest. It’s got all the elements of good show, like whatever that is to you. It’s my favourite. 

 

FAVOURITE SONG CURRENTLY IS...

A song by Post Malone called ‘Motley Crew’. I’m a huge fan of Post and not a lot of people know about the band Motley Crew, that’s what made it extra special. If you know you know.


FAVOURITE ALBUM CURRENTLY IS...

I don’t really have a current favourite album, it’s all a little watered down to me. But go to would be ‘Pure Heroine’ by Lorde… she was 16 when she made that album. What was she thinking? Genius.


THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF...

Well I’ve been told I can be quite cool and charismatic, so I guess if I had to pick one more word to describe myself, I’d have to say… A dreamer. I genuinely believe in dreaming as big as you can and having faith that things will fall into place and all work out for the better.


MORNING OR NIGHT PERSON...

I’d say both really, yeah I love both. Although I do come alive at night.


WHAT IS YOUR LOCK SCREEN...

My one true love. If you’re lucky enough to get to see my lock screen, play the lotto.


WHO DO YOU LOOK UP TO THE MOST...


God and my Dad. What’s understood doesn’t need be explained. 


HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR STYLE...

Unpredictable, original, complex and multi-layered. It’s like solemnly swore to never put on a bad outfit, as long as I look eccentric and clean, it’s a win for me.


HOW DID YOU GET INTO TATTOOING...

I’ve been tattoo crazy since my 18th birthday. Like the saying goes, I’m not addicted I’m committed. It was only right I started tattooing, with the amount of hours and days I’ve spent in different tattoo shops, constantly asking questions, soaking up knowledge. Before I knew it, I chose a path.


WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TATTOO THAT YOU DID YOURSELF

Each one is like a child to me so I couldn’t pick one over the other in all honesty due to the story behind them. I know which one my mother would pick. But yeah, I’ll let the world decide their favourite on me.


MY DREAM CAREER IS...

A mega superstar or a super dad, hey maybe even both right?!… like who’s to say I can’t achieve both in this lifetime huh?! Anything’s possible.


WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER TO BE YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT...

Either graduating from university or being on Vogue, like who would’ve thought? Me graduating? Me on Vogue? Dream Big.
