We had the good fortune of connecting with Dante ThatGuy and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dante, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Only thought was having something that was mine. Something that could live on even after me, Koolr Standards will live forever.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
It’s wild, I discovered I was a creator back in 2013. I was staying in Atlanta at the time and everything I seen and had the chance to be around was inspiring. Growing up I didn’t want much from life, only plan was just to get older. Putting myself around creatives, learning the world; helped me release my inner creator. It became my passion, a true love, therapy. Music, Art, Fashion, Digital Art I gets down!!
KooLr Standards is the brand, its for everyone, simple as that!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Boom, First stop is and will forever be my mommas house for breakfast, make way down to The Giving Tree to get some lovely veggies. Get nice and fried and head to bourbon grill for lunch then boogie on over to the MCA for some swanky art. Of course take a trip up to the Mtns, nowhere specific to be exact, I’d just google some place day of lol
After the mtns, stop off at Good Chem for some more veggies then end the day with a Lovely 40oz of Colt 45 at 1up

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Biggest shout-out goes to my MOMMA!! She showed me everything is possible with hard work and faith. She never gave up or gave in, she’s my role model for life.
Also want to thank all the chicken nuggets,gushers and hot pockets across the land for giving me that extra boost when creating!!!=
