I was born half Trinidad and half Scandinavian. I have a unique eye color you will not see often. I balance on my hands extremely well and have hikes thousands of miles upon hike trails. What makes me unique, well that is for you to experience.
D.ylan, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I was overweight in high school. I had started to workout and hit the gym daily my junior year and had lost a lot of weight. With that, I started getting attention. Someone had contacted me on Instagram asking if I wanted to do a shoot. Ever since then I fell in love with it and have not stopped since. Even though I've had ups and downs, this is what I want to do. I wish to create art in my photos and be noted as a legacy.
W.ho is your inspiration in life Dylan? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration is James Dean. I live by his lifestyle and wish to portray him in a movie. How I keep inspired is imaging what my life will be like once I make it. What you think you will become as Gandhi always said someday
We all make mistakes Dylan; 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.
Signing up for a new agency and believing that it all would be away. They had you on and promised the world. I was young and naive. Three all my money away twice and loser pretending to act like a model..ow I have nothing. Just as
Dylan, 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 prioritising your clients’ needs?
I've always replied back to anyone who had contacted me and has been professional always never cancelling and always given a heads up with any problems.
Please tell us, Dylan, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Well I had went to an open call for an audition. I knew that I had to give it my all and show them what I had. Years of practice all came down to that moment.
Dylan, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way to work successfully.
I work for the water company, and we used to run new wire and drill holes all throughout homes to mount our new radios. People were complaining about drilling in homes, so I said: "why not just use the old wire already the connected and gel cap the connection." I made the company save money after that
Dylan, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
I do not have a proudest moment yet considering I am not even a real model.
Dylan, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I couldn't give a good example at work other than surviving being chased by a bear. When adrenaline like that kicks in, and jump-starts your entire body and brain, that was all a crazy experience. When you are fighting to survive you really learn about yourself.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Never give up
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I am so open to any concept of shooting and will Dolan with anyone for ideas and amazing concepts. Bring it on
