my favorite things about modeling...I personally believe its being able to reinvent yourself each and every shoot. Some jobs become very typical after awhile, so i have taken upon myself to develop shoots with talented photographer friends of mine to create something unique and off kilter to even out everything.



Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Son of a wonderful Mother & Father. Blessed to have my three sisters and younger brother in my life. Grounded, yes. Judgmental, no.
Am i a lover of life? Why, yes i am! Haha...I'm not that good talking about myself. More so go off of what my dear friends would say in regards to me.


How did you first get started in modeling?
At the ripe age of 19 i did my first test out of pure interest. actually kind of went on the sideline for a few years as i was finishing my business degree. It wasn't until the last 2 years that i really have picked up steam as i networked and developed a base of genuine contacts.

So you were one of the models chosen to shoot with South Moon Under last April. What has happened since then? Any spectacular bookings?
Ever since my shoot with south moon under i have re marketed myself to be more viable to national markets. Since doing that i have booked mastercard/google wallet, Caddilac, and glamour to name a few. Like any business, modeling needs to be treated as such if you really want to find your place in the industry being viable or not.


Would you consider yourself primarily a fashion model?
I honestly consider my place in the industry as being more of a "musical man" type of model. What i am trying to get at is that i cover all basis. One day i might be doing a lookbook, another a commercial for mastercard, next a showroom event. It really is fun and exciting if you push yourself into various areas.


You are definitely one to watch in this industry... Where do you hope to be in your career next year at this time?
One thing I have adopted is to accept what has been given to me and what has been taken away. Nothing has come to me easy in the past to the present without extreme hard work and tireless dedication. Those who know me best would agree wholeheartedly with that statement. At the end of the day i could say "i would love to be in a feature film" or "shoot a worldwide fashion campaign." The truth is, i never know what the next day to year may bring to me...but with drive and persistence anything can be possible.


Do you have a secret passion?
It's odd, but i am super infatuated with creating and collecting lighting. Most are mid-century/1950's. I'm an old man stuck in 2012.


Do you have any hobbies?
When i actually get some free time (which isn't much) its spent with my music. I was a little over zealous and compiled an amazing sound system to hone my ears. Truly therapeutic experience.


What was the funniest thing you have ever experienced?
......my daily life.


What is something that not a lot of people know about you but you WISH more people COULD know?
Most likely why I refer to myself as Pandora's Box & The Unicorn.....maybe i shall disclose one day.


Who has made the biggest impact on your life so far, and why?
I don't think i would be who I am today without the experiences i had with my mother for 17 years and after I lost her. The choices I make and the understanding of the fragility of life changed my whole being and compassion towards all people, no matter what walk or life.
