Pop earned his AAA degree at Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles. He considers his fine hand to be his strength as a designer, and his sketching to be his weakness. He says music influences his designs, and he likes listening to opera, electro or Broadway musicals while he works. He is most proud of designing his 2-D outfit for the famous New York drag queen Acid Betty.

Pope's favorite style icon is Tilda Swinton, while his favorite designers are Viktor & Rolf, McQueen, Mugler (original house), Rick Owens, Galliano, Gareth Pugh, Westwood, and Comme Des Garcons.
