Sir is inspired by his mother and her determination to continue to live her best life for not just herself but her legacy as well. Sir admires how she has always had a clear vision for her life and never given up despite the many obstacles that were presented. Sir is a warrior in life and without the armor of his mother's perseverance he would not be the man he is today. She has taught him that authenticity is the key to success and without it we can not realize our true potential.
Sir knows that despite the labels society gives us or the ones we give ourselves that at our foundation we are all the same. If we were to all focus on loving ourselves & becoming centered in our truth the world would be a much more beautiful place.
Sir is currently based in New York City.
