Q: Who do you look up to and idolize in the industry?

A: In the modeling industry, I look up to David Gandy.  He is very professional and approachable. I want people to feel that way when they look at my career so far.

 

Q: How did you start modeling?

A: It was by chance. I am a self taught organic chemist specializing in asphalt, and I was Bodybuilding at the time. I was posting results and getting competition ready when I was contacted by a variety of photographers. They said I should lose a bit of weight and try modeling. I did, and the next thing I know, I was in NYC chasing a dream I never thought I had.

 

Q: When doing a photoshoot do you find everything feels natural or do you find yourself pushing hard to achieve the final outcome?

A: Photoshoots are more natural for me. I get into the character of the shoot before I get on set. Sometimes the photographers pursue specific poses that are hard to perceive as “natural,” however when identified with the character, I can pull it off.

 

Q: What’s the best and worst perks you’ve found of being a male model?

A: The best perk is the ability to meet people you would have never thought you would meet. I get to experience bits and pieces of lives that I never thought I would live. Of course you get clothes, free parties, and lifestyle support, but I personally love the fact that people look for inspiration through my work.  I also love surprising people with hidden intellect. Being thought of as uneducated, or ignorant is worst part about being a model.

 

Q: Tell me about your favorite shoot and why you found it the most enjoyable.

A: My favorite shoot was for Runway Magazine(coming soon). I enjoyed the atmosphere and the people. It was a larger production than most shoots, so I was able to interact and meet more great people. The photos rock as well as the makeup artists and stylists. I hope everyone else enjoys it.

A: I am a huge Radiohead fan. Deftones is awesome, and I love Bassnectar

 

Q: What instruments do you play?

A: I have been playing guitar since I was a little kid. It keeps me sane with all the traveling. I consider it my “rock”…no pun intended. My father was drummer, so he taught my brother and I how to play since we could walk.  I also sing and play a bit of piano.

 

Q: What’s one of your biggest guilty pleasures?

A: I love to cook. And when I do, I always pretend like I am hosting a cooking show.

 

Q: What project are you currently most excited for and why?

A: Well, If told you, I would have to kill you hahaha just kidding. I am looking forward to upcoming shoots for June. Hopefully I will be able to continue to transform and grow. Life is about new experiences, so I am mainly excited for the unexpected.

 

Q: What else is in the works?

A: As you know, I am a musician. I have been working on my first album and I hope to be releasing it sometime in the winter, or the summer of next year. Life happens, so we will see what is to come of it.

 

Q: Where can we see more of you?
