Alright, now for the interview! Firstly Geoffrey, how would you best describe yourself?
Model

Our readers would love to get to know you more Geoffrey. Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far.
Art is such a universal language because it involves a vision for emotional expression. What I like about being a model is that I get the opportunity to be the canvas for visionaries such as photographers, designers, etc. to display their artistic expression

What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field Geoffrey?
Male modelling is such a small but competitive market. Your appearance gets you in the door but what you bring gives you the items to decorate the space your in. My contribution to the modelling industry goes beyond what I contribute visually so yes I do see myself progressing in this field

How do you communicate with people Geoffrey? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
Every client and photographer I have worked with have always praised my diligent and easy going personality. I have yet to experience a photographer or client that I have not been able to establish a friendship with 

If you had to do it over again, what would you change Geoffrey?
I wouldn't change anything I believe that everything in my life has established itself at the time it was needed. I am honestly enjoying the roller coaster I am riding.

Who is your hero Geoffrey, and how have they helped you get to where you are?
My mother has always been my hero. She has established morals that have kept me grounded and able to withstand through adversity. And after loosing my mother three years ago, I have vowed to continue down this path of no regrets 

How important are creative education courses Geoffrey? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful?
I received my BA in journalism and my MA in cultural psychology. Both of my academic endeavours have contributed a lot to my understanding and approach toward life. Even as I am modelling now, I have still found the time to further my education. I am currently working on my PhD 

Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry?
Never let the word "No" redirect you from your goals in life
