Muddafucka I'm Will...William Nguyen if you feel like dropping gov's. I freeze time for human beings who would probably never even remember the moments I capture.
This dude is everywhere and you ain't neva there. And if you are then chances are he shot you...die slow. He drops a new album almost everyday, and is steady playing tag with a whole gang of beautiful females (don't get lost in the metaphors). He can be spotted in the VIP with all the women you came to see and he always gets his canon in the club despite a thorough search. The greatest part about Will is I never actually see him taking the photos but somehow the next day, there I am along with every other person that attended. The man has a job to do and it always gets done..."and he still finds time to give drinks out to everybody, everybody fall back, ya'll snappin, he's reenacting!" Plus he's hood certified and asian...
Welcome to my Superior 12!

Take a minute to read to read this interview with Matt George, my colleague (my boss).
This dude has more on his plate at 28 than most people accomplish by 40. In the interview he talks about last months news - the Stussy x Boneyards pop shop in Vancouver.

This is a monthly post I'm going to do for an entire year. I figured I need some form of structure or routine since I can't stay in the gym for longer than 2 weeks and I have failed to keep a consistent practice regiment the 8 times I have tried to learn how to play the piano. So I begin my responsibility training with a segment that will tell you about the 12 most influential, interesting, and talented individuals I have met over the course of my life. These people deserve my dedication...thank me later.
This well groomed seemingly pleasant and content man in this photo above is the most talented musician I have ever met. Some people play instruments, some people play instruments extremely well, and a few can manage to manipulate instruments and sounds to recreate an emotion only evoked by the original recordings of a Marvin Gaye or an Aretha Franklin...he is one of those few. Pair that with some of the most hilarious and witty conversation I've ever had (super pause), and you have a one Nick Brongers. I will not include his myspace or any sort of location info because I dont want you to contact him for beats...they're all mine.
