About: I'm a former college athlete, I played football. When I got injured and came home, I wanted to find something to strive for. I felt empty getting up everyday and working hard, but not knowing what I was working hard for. I always wanted to model and have thought about it before. I ended up attending John Casablancas International, for modelling and acting. After that, I began setting up photo-shoots on my own, trying to build my book. I took the few looks that I got from those photo-shoots and used them to get signed to a local agency called The Cameo Agency. I continued building my book and then signed to an agency in NYC called, Genesis level Models. I've done some promotional modelling for, ES Collection (Spain), Timoteo (LA), Marcuse (Australia), Boxers NYC Bar (NYC). I've also been a hand model for Cosman Medical, I was in Boston Fashion Week 2016, and I also competed at IMTA in NYC in 2016. At IMTA I placed second in the fashion print competition and placed fourth place in the swimsuit competition.

Tell us something about yourself. What you do, passion and aspiration in life?:

I love being outside and doing outdoor activities. I love to hike, walk the beach, run, and lift. I also, enjoy hanging out with friends and sharing good vibes.

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

My Inspiration in life is my mum. I truly couldn't put into words the amount of respect and admiration I have for her. She has been through so much throughout her whole life. My mum dropped out of high school as a kid, but then went back and finished. She then had us three kids with my dad, who left us when we were younger. My mum worked all day and still came home to put dinner on the table. My mum is the strongest, and the most caring person in the world. I would do anything for my mum, and she is what keeps me going everyday. My biggest fear in life is letting my mum down. My goal in life is to be able to provide her with a great life where she never has to work again and enjoy life.

What is your aspiration in life?:

My aspiration in life is to make modelling my lifetime career, and travel the world doing it, as well.

What is the most challenging part of your profession?:

The most challenging part of the profession is getting used to the word, "no". I've heard "no" to auditions way more then I've heard "yes". I had to understand that I won't get every job I go for, but what I can do is know that I went in their and gave it my all.

We all make mistakes we wish we could take back. Tell me about a time you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.:

When you’re working with a large number of customers, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. How do you go about prioritising your customers’ needs?:

Tell me about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities.: I have to be strategic all the time. The calendar app on my phone is my best-friend. I always put all my auditions, photo-shoots, meetings, etc., in the calendar that way I can plan my day around those important times.

Give me an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.:

Tell me about your proudest professional accomplishment.: Most definitely, was when I won second place at IMTA. Being called up to the stage on awards night in front of everybody was amazing.

How old do you have to be before it can be said you died of old age?: I think once you're 75 years old you could die of old age.

Do glow-in-the-dark objects stop glowing when somebody turns the lights on?:

I don't think they ever stop glowing. Just when you turn the lights on it makes it harder for you to see it.

If parents say, “Never take candy from strangers” then why do we celebrate Halloween?:

We can't stop celebrating it now. Think about all the kids that would be devastated if we cancelled Halloween, it would be tragic.

If one man says, “it was an uphill battle,” and another says, “it went downhill from there,” how could they both be having troubles?:
