What you do at MOD:
President & Creative Director

Your style icons:
Ivanka Trump because she keeps it classy; And I don’t mean that ironically. She is the quintessential picture of perfectly styled elegance, never too revealing and ALWAYS gorgeous.

Musical influences:
If my iTunes Genius recs are any indication, I like ALL genres of music. It really depends on what I’m doing, from Top 40 beats to run with like Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga and Jay Z to eclectic lounge to relax after a long day like Thievery Corporation. Basically by the end of each day, I’ve probably covered at least 5 genres, so I guess you might call me a music connoisseur 😉

Your favorite ATX spot:
Any place I can get stellar sushi, I’m there! (Uchi, Finn & Porter)

A quote to live by:
“Everything will be okay in the end, if it’s not okay, it’s not the end”

BIANCA KRAUSE

What you do at MOD:
Art Director

Your style icons:
Grace Jones, Selena, Isabella Blow, Lady Gaga

Musical influences:
Anything danceable and preferably made in the mid-to-late ’90’s. I grew up listening to Aaliyah, Brandy, Destiny’s Child, and Missy Elliot. But, mainly Beyonce. Why? Because she’s perfect. ‘Nuff said.

Your favorite ATX spot:
Either Veggie Heaven on Guadalupe or 888 Pan Asian on Oltorf.

A quote to live by:
“No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change, become a better version of yourself.” – Madonna

What you do at MOD:
Marketing Manager

Your style icons:
The Kates: Hudson, Middleton, Moss.

Musical influences:
Any song that makes me want to yell the lyrics at the top of my lungs and/or dance on an elevated surface is a good song in my book. This sole criterion explains my eclectic (and questionable) taste in music. My iTunes library houses nearly all types of music: Alternative, Country, Hip-Hop, Folk, Classic Rock and many more genres I’m too embarrassed to mention.

Your favorite ATX spot:
Town Lake is perfect for two of my favorite pastimes: Running and people watching.

A quote to live by:
“Life is short; buy the shoes.”

Your style icons:
Bond. James Bond.

Musical influences:
I really connect with Serj Tankian’s music. I especially like his album where he used an entire orchestra, very cool. I also really dig Remy Zero.

Your favorite ATX spot:
I love Auditorium Shores. It’s just a very cool place to go and relax.

A quote to live by:
“You have to trust someone to be betrayed”

What you do at MOD:
Graphic Designer

Your style icons:
While admittedly I don’t follow fashion that much, my design icons are Jen Mussari, Jessica Hische, Mary Kate Mcdevitt & Erik Marinovich

Musical influences:
Say Anything, Misfits, Motorhead, Wayne Hancock, A$AP Ferg

Your favorite ATX spot:
If I could, I would spend every minute outside. So when friends are looking for me they can usually find me somewhere with an outdoor area where I can bring my pups. Some of my favorites are the Yellow Jacket Social Club & the Buzzmill. If I’m not there, then I’m usually taking twisties through the Hill Country on my motorcycle.
