I was born in London and grew up in Stamford Hill and Hackney in the 1960's. My older brother was a Stamford Hill Mod, and "Inducted" me into MOd in 1964 when he took me to get my first Mod haircut on his Lambretta seies 3. I vowed with four of my friends at 14 to always stay a Mod. I Came to the USA in 1998 and eventually found local Stateside Mods, and became re-inspired to live a Mod way of life.
