I met Gen at Daley Plaza this summer when we were both sweating out the hottest days of the summer outside in the name of indie label brands. It turns out, we had a lot to talk about.
It tuns out, he's a native New Yorker, and has kind of taken the Chicago entrepreneur and tech scene by quiet storm for the summer, learning the ins and outs of what this place has going on as he worked alongside fellow indie brand founders over at Bucketfeet.
And while I have my own little tech secrets up my sleeve, Gen is working on TheCom.it- a start-up focused on providing companies with feedback from customers and the like. Great, yes?
Outfitted in a chambray/grey seersucker bow / seersucker pocket square from The Style Cooperative, and his favorite pair of BucketFeet, we had a good time talking shop and climbing on some stuff.
(True story: there was blood shed involved in this spread. It took a little more than I'd like to admit in self control not to take pictures and post it as part of the spread. Gen was a good sport- he now bleeds Chicago brands? Ok, that's reaching.)
