growing up, all my best friends were men. it wasn't until after college that i realized that men were going to fall short as friends, but i digress. my relationship to jack spade started when andy spade started the line. i have worked and evolved with the brand for many years and my deep history of male friendship has made shooting men a true comfort zone for me. the jack spade man has always been a combination of guys i knew and know. a potent combination of humor, restraint, and sex appeal. casting jack spade is never easy, because a model never does it for me. non-model's spirit and natural shyness is to me a badge of masculine vulnerability that puts a spring in my step.
