People often talk about pursuing happiness, but I’m beginning to believe that if we spend all of our time chasing something, the further away from us it will travel.
Brooklyn based BKB member Fred White is a Maryland native and artist who found his way to Brooklyn in an ‘86 Chevette Hatchback called “The Brown Hornet”.
He spends his days working at the 14th street Patagonia store, climbing at BKB, and also is a self-taught painter. He hand paints directly onto old Patagucci threads – effectively turning them into insanely beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art.

The first independently organized TEDxNewYork at Weylin B. Semour’s in Williamsburg took place this past Saturday, giving Halloween goers (and the BKB team) a brain massage for their hangovers. The theme of this TEDxNewYork was Grand Central, and their mission was to stir up interesting conversations, new ideas and to incite action.
