Meet the Cast: Brandon

Inspired by their passion and enthusiasm, we took eight individuals on a journey to the wilds of Oregon. Read below to find out more about one of the inspiring people featured in our Holiday 2012 campaign.

Meet Brandon: a natural body movement trainer from Bath, ME. Brandon calls himself a “salty dog,” meaning he’s from Maine and likes to be comfortable in what he wears. He’s a fine food and fitness fanatic who likes to carry mementos of his family and heritage wherever he travels.

To get to know the personalities of our holiday cast we took a peek inside their suitcases and had them describe the contents in their own words. Take a look at what Brandon can’t live without.

The basketball represents me as the all-around person I am. Playing basketball is one of my favorite things to do because it puts me in a state of bliss at times. My passport makes me feel like James Bond. I like to travel and always travel light in case anything hits the fan. My family heritage is important to me, so that’s why I chose some family passages from “Voyages Out to Sea.” Every item touches me nostalgically, spiritually and deeply.

I don’t have the chance to visit my parents in Los Angeles very often but I pack these essentials when I make the venture from Portland. Because LA has the best shows, the boots are a staple to the wardrobe. Books are for downtime between family events and the fishing pole, well, the ocean’s right there!

Meet Priscilla: an artist from Bronx, NY. Priscilla never makes plans with anyone because life is too unpredictable for her. During the day, she teaches skateboarding for SURE Skateboards in New York City and works on her art at night. Priscilla has many passions but she ultimately aspires to teach art one day.

Bunny was given to me by my mom and I’ve had her as long as I can remember. My family is split so whenever I’d visit my dad or had to go away she was like a little piece of home and my mom to take with me. I’ve been through a lot and I know she’s just a stuffed animal but I feel super comforted when she’s around. I skate because it sets me free, just like my art.  I can get completely lost in both. I consider them my vice. When I’m on my board I can put my arms up in the middle of the street when everyone is asleep and overcome anything because the streets belong to me. The elephants are because they are my favorite creature (I even have an elephant tattoo). They’re humble, gentle, strong, considerate and smart -everything needed to create harmony in life. The scarves and colors represent how I like to create beauty around me. You can take a scarf, hang it somewhere in a crappy room and bring a little color and culture to it.

Inspired by their passion and enthusiasm, we took eight individuals on a journey to the wilds of Oregon. Read below to find out more about one of the inspiring people featured in our Holiday 2012 campaign.

Meet Kelsey: a blogger from Oceanside, CA. Kelsey likes trying new things and believes it’s valuable to learn something from every experience. Even though she writes a blog, she likes taking pictures with actual film. Blogging and photography aren’t her only outlets of creativity as she enjoys expressing herself through her outfits – the crazier her outfit the more confident she feels.

To get to know the personalities of our holiday cast we took a peek inside their suitcases and had them describe the contents in their own words. Take a look at what Kelsey can’t live without.

I like to collect little things and I travel a lot for work so these items are a way to help me stay sane on my trips and have been accumulated along the way. I like to take film photos so I always have my camera on me!  In my spare time I make collages, zines, mix tapes and other creative projects. This collage is about releasing your energy into the universe.  I like to mirror image the photos I use so they become abstracted and you can’t tell what their literal meaning is anymore. In this collage I used coral, snow mountains, glaciers, the moon, and clouds. My small objects inspire me.  I like to play my recorder in down time on jobs or to make people laugh.
