This time last year, I'm at a friends house for a nice gathering in NYC. I see this guy and I tell my guest "I know that guy but I can't remember how or why but I KNOW his name is Hawaiin Mike. She tries to help jog my memory but nope! Couldn't figure it out. At some point, we all engage in a group conversation and I ask if his name is such and he says yes.
Long story short, for the past year, he and I have been trying to figure out how and why we know one another. Music industry ties is a big possibility, but still nothing no matter names or places we drop to one another lol.
Fast forward 2 weeks ago, my niece asks me how I started modeling & I show her my modeling portfolio. Some of my first fashion magazine spreads and this one spread in #TheSourceMagazine from 2000. I was a baby! Anyhow, I tell her the story of how I was working at a Record Label doing PR in NYC at the time, and took our label artists to their magazine shoot when this guy asks me if I wanted to model. I said sure and lord and behold, he put me in the men's gear our artists were supposed to wear instead of them LOL, .
I looked at the shoot coordinator / stylist name on the tear sheet and who does it say???? Yep ... zoom in and see for yourself lol... this man @HWMK aka @ChefForHigher!! One of my first real modeling / magazine spreads... got a nice check for it too lol... thank you Mike, one of the coolest things I got to do when I was a baby! 😁
