Firstly Frankito, how would you best describe yourself?
Model

Frankito. Tell us ABOUT yourself. 
I'm not your average model slash actor. I actually started this because my friend thought I'd look good on TV. She was right!

Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos? (12 more interview questions)

Yes

Our readers would love to get to know you more Frankito. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

My hair is the money maker as my manager says. I have a happy go lucky personality, but my exterior is rougher and harder. I like to shock.

Frankito, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?

I started modelling to help my friend launch her management company. We took off together from there. Making people feel something is my passion. I choose acting because through the film you can reach a huge base and bring everyone closer.

Who is your inspiration in life Frankito? How do you keep inspired?

Jim Carey, he is so crazy with his style. You can tell he intends to entertain. I read a lot of IG quotes honestly it works so well. 

We all make mistakes Frankito; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I've walked out of shoots because I felt uncomfortable with gay guys taking advantage from the standpoint of a "photographer". I realized that with everything in life there would be people trying to use you, so I don't walk off set anymore. 

Frankito, 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?

My manager helps a ton. She schedules and I show up. I always give 110% people don't care about your bad day nor should they.

Please tell us Frankito, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?

I had to get a rental for a day because I had to get to the Valley back to Hollywood and then back to the hills for a night shoot. You do what you have to do. 

Frankito, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I'm an actor. It's second nature.

Frankito, 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?
I walked for a breast cancer fashion event where all the proceeds went to research. That was pretty cool.

Frankito, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
The bonus about me is that I take my career into my hands. I'm always active on set with directors and camera folks. I edit my own shots sometimes. 

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?

Do it. In this day and age, it's really easy.

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Collaborations bring multiple walks of life to the same path. I'm down to work with anyone who has something good to produce.
