Speed Dating is a series where we get to know some of our favorite brand evangelists, whether they’re artists, designers, entrepreneurs, activists, or full-time parents! Today in the hot seat is Devan Anderson (@devanondeck), an Art Director, lifestyle expert, and content creator in Los Angeles.

I’m a leading voice in the Men’s Fashion + Tech Space. On the sartorial side of things, I’ve mastered the art of Smart-Streetwear; often pairing trousers with minimal luxury sneakers. Through this lens, I use my platform to give Men a safe space to openly speak about insecurities and body issues; empowering them to navigate their lives more confidently.
