Can you tell us more about yourself?

My name is Michael Hsu, and I live in San Diego, California. I am a flight instructor, and some of my favorite activities include chasing sunsets, flying, surfing, and photography.

Tell us about your style and where you find your inspiration?

Well, I would generally describe myself as someone who loves timeless clothing. That is a fashion that never really ages or goes out of style. Something evergreen yet simple and long-lasting.
I don’t currently have a standout character or inspiration. Still, I take pleasure and motivation in many good examples and people.
As a flight instructor and pilot, I particularly love wearing leather jackets that can keep me warm once I am airborne. My most preferred look is stylish and functional.
So, clothing that serves a fundamental purpose, but still makes me look outstanding. AVI LEATHER makes some of the best pilot leather jackets I have ever seen. The best part is that they never go out of style.

How do you use social media?

I really got into social media as a travel photographer. I document all my visits on Instagram as the avid traveler that I am. I decided to join Instagram when I began my training as a pilot. The idea was to capture great places that I visited and show people what it was like to become a pilot.
I generally use Instagram and YouTube. I post pictures of amazing landscapes and places I travel to on Instagram. I post more unboxing and review videos of leather jackets and significant updates in my aviation career on YouTube.
Regarding accounts to follow, I recommend that you check out Peter McKinnon. He posts excellent and educative content about becoming a brilliant videographer and photographer. 

What must you experience in the city where you live?

The sunset and beaches in San Diego are truly out of this world. I highly recommend seeing them. Every day, I would look for a new place to chase and watch the sunset.
