“The Confidence of bankers and venture capitalists has been shattered, at least for a while, and it will take time for them to recover from the financial turmoil of the past couple of years.
Steven J. Davis, Wall Street Journal, Jan 4, 2010

Well, we have to end apartheid for one. And slow down the nuclear arms race, stop terrorism and world hunger. We have to provide food and shelter for the homeless, and oppose racial discrimination and promote civil rights, while also promoting equal rights for women. We have to encourage a return to traditional moral values. Most importantly, we have to promote general social concern and less materialism in young people.
Patrick Bateman, American Psycho”

You never know what your going to find in the industrial areas of Orange County.. I went with a couple of buddies to visit a warehouse filled with sk8 boards. We walked to the back of the warehouse and the little kid inside me had a big smile. Then my smile grew even bigger when I found out they had dead stock pressed wood fiberglass mini sk8 boards… Say whaaat.

Rows Upon Rows of New Sk8 boards.

1) New version of a Dog Town board in a old mini shape. 2) This board (dead stock since the 70’s) has been waiting nearly 40 years for me to show it some love. My Official custom  NYC_Paris / bootleg Chanel board.

Clae / LTD

The other day Hawaii Mike of LTD Magazine was in town. I met up with Hawaii at Fred Segal Santa Monica. After a brief critique of the store we went to meet up with Sung over at the Clae Studio before we all went to try some of the best Pho in town. Mike and Sung are both really humble kats considering the wealth of knowledge and experience they have… It’s always good catching up with these two kats.. I always like a good critique session over a nice meal…  Lets do it again soon…

Debonair Magazine

deb.o.nair |ˌdebəˈne(ə)r|
(of a man) confident, stylish, and charming.

To be called Debonair is one thing, thinking of your self as debonair is quite another.. I’ve been called debonair in past and probably laughed every time someone has called me debonair.

I really don’t consider myself as debonair person. I think it’s one of those words/ideas one can never achieve only strive for..

Below are 10 questions Claudine Gumbel asked for the Mag.


Claudine Gumbel sat down with Peter James Lee, who in addition to being a photographer, blogger, dj, and gardener also happens to be the founder and designer for Cassette.

1. What are you working on?  What is taking up the majority of your time right now?

2. What are your favorite places to chill out + what cities are they located in?

3. Who is your best friend and why?

4. Do you believe in past lives and if so what/who were you in your past life?

5. What was your best trip ever and where do you want to travel next?

6. Who is your favorite artist, musician, photographer – who inspires you?

7. Do you have a photo you took or a link to a piece of music or a video that speaks to you? Will you share that with me?

8. If you were stranded on an island what book would you take with you? And who would you take with you?

9. Who inspires you fashion wise – what is your staple uniform?  If you had to live in one piece of clothing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

10. What was the most memorable day of your life thus far and why?

(visit debonair magazine here for my answers.)
