I have a background in the army national guard, four-year active service. I have been on one tour, been to very remarkable areas of the world. I went to school for accounting but found my love in fitness modeling. Hoping to step on stage, and do a physique contest soon! I have a photographer that has told me to start modeling, and try to see if this dream can be a reality. My photographer has taken a few pictures of me, and I have tried to promote as much as I can to show I have the capabilities to model. My dream is to be on covers and do photos shoot one day. Also become an actor.
Our readers would love to get to know you deeper. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I love to learn, the more I learn, the more I know. I’ve never been picky about people showing me different ways I can become a better at a certain job. I enjoy dancing and proving to people that dreams come true. I can speak Gujarati which is an Indian dialect. I enjoy fashion and showing people that I can surely dress well. I’m very athletic, coming from a past of playing basketball and football, also wrestling.
Deep, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion is fitness; I love the feeling of seeing my body change the way I want it to be. The fitness lifestyle has different been a big impact in my life. This has come from stressful situations, working out has always been the big part of my life to make me feel true and whole. My family is who inspire me. My mom and Dad have always told me to follow my dreams and become someone you want. From my past back ground of growing up in rural areas of Florida, and my family not having enough money. My mother is having major arthritis issues and still trying to put food on the table. This is what makes me inspired. I started modeling very recently I never thought I was too good enough or fit, or capable of even walking onto a street and taking pictures. I put all that negativity aside and tried to do my best in photos. My friend who is my photographer told me you could be one of these people on the covers for a high-end magazine just try. So I did.
Who is your inspiration in life Deep? How do you keep inspired?
I get inspired by my mother. She has major arthritis problems that affect her from sleeping at night, and doing most things around the house. Also from getting chronic headaches from time to time. My mother doesn’t even work she takes a lot of medications and tries to alway have a smile on her face. When I told her I wanted to chase my dream and try modeling and acting she looked at me and gave me the biggest smile. Saying that never to quit and believe who you truly are. She’s my biggest fan and inspiration.
We all make mistakes Deep; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model , you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Honestly, I’ve never been a big model agency. Although, I have been in a situation with the military where some of my colleagues didn’t understand a certain task or mission. We Calmingly talked things out and worked out things we differed and made the mission happen.
Deep , when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
By making time, understand structure. Knowing when to incorporate certain dates and times for every client.
Please tell us Deep, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
There were times I had to work and go to school on certain days and times. Modeling is the main priority for me. I would do my HW in the morning or call off work because I know the risks in modeling and I’m willing to take that.
Deep, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
In the military, I was second in command. My higher up that was in charge wouldn’t agree with the tasks of getting a certain person. I told him to speak to me privately, and we spoke about how the way to safety and clearly in achieving a task that the certain person had in plan. My high up told me he agrees and it went well.
Deep please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
The first time I took my first photos. It was the most awkward thing for me. I didn’t know if I was ready. It makes it my proudest because I learned from that day and shows the person I am now
Deep, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Instead of normal standing or posing pictures. We started taking pictures in the gym. With all kinds of workouts. And facial expressions. It was exciting because I could just workout and be myself. It was difficult because so many people work out and my photographer was getting a little irritated about it haha.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Keep taking pictures. Social media is key. Have a wide range to workout with and just start posting. Get your name out there show that you want to make it a career.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Any would be great.
