Dada is quite brilliant and we were crazy lovers, but I stopped it when we discovered what a strong creative connection we had. I didn’t want it just to be about careless love.

On his free time, he designed clothes and props for her live performances in 2008. One of his most know item is the disco stick. The main idea was that even in dark club, Gaga could become the light source. At first, they were the main duo behind the Haus of Gaga along with Gaga's manager and staff.
