Stepping up my game as more than just the occasional fashion model, PR boy and event blogger, “style” became an enviable part of my societal distinction this past year. As it not only allowed me to stand out as a Brown Boy in Paris but also work as a cool “Fashion Therapist“, my palms were often driven straight into the hands of diplomats, legendary celebrities, co-founders of world famous events, and some of the pop culture scene’s coolest connoisseurs. Now as a full-service brand manager, this professionally “stylish” image obviously plays a pivotal role in the success of the brands that I represent.

Pliable to the aforementioned activities, The Triumphant Scoop became a perfect space to share a few of my realities.

Here’s to T. Style & The City and its finest documented moments.
