Who are you, and where are you from?
My name is Lee, born, raised and based in Amsterdam.

What is your relationship with Patta and when/where did it start?
I've known Edson since the early 90's when we were coming up in the Hip Hop scene and DJ culture. I met Gee when he moved to Amsterdam to work in the music industry. We all bonded through music, sneakers and street fashion, the basis for what Patta is about.

What is your function in Patta?
I started out doing whatever a computer was needed for in the early days of Patta. This evolved into media director and designer.

What keeps you occupied on a daily basis?

Emails and Adobe. When I'm not working, it's usually music, photography, film and skateboarding. Lately I've been getting back into a bit of gaming too.

Which music artists are you currently listening to and would you recommend others?
Mainly new stuff from Cashmere Cat, Sinjin Hawke and related artists. Also a bunch of edits/remixes from music friends like SIROJ, FS Green (Midas Hutch) and Lido.

What is your best power piece at the moment?
Dylan Rieder t-shirt by Fucking Awesome. Rest in peace to one of the most stylish skaters ever to ride a board. Dylan forever!

What is your favourite visual at the moment and why?
The never-seen-before images for "Portrait of Hong Kong" by street photography master Fan Ho.
