I’ve never heard the name Halexis before.
Over by Union Square, people also call me Old Skool.

Why is that?
Because of the way I live my life. I’ve been called an old soul since I was 6 years of age. I started hanging out in Union Square when I was 11. If my life were an episode of Friends, Union Square would be my Central Perk.

What’s all that stuff you have with you?
I’m going over to my friend’s house to play some multiplayer games, and he only has one controller, so I brought two more. I always have a plethora of iPods. The mask is something my mother got at a thrift store. It has some heritage, from somewhere like Japan or Mongolia. And I like to fashionably switch UV measurements, which is why I have two pairs of sunglasses.

Doesn’t it all get heavy?
Nah. You guys caught me on a light day.
