Firstly Jose, how would you best describe yourself?
Would you like us to recommend you to clients looking for a Model near your area?
Joseplease tell us your talent/work rate per hour?
Jose. Tell us ABOUT yourself.
I'm an Area Director of Operations for a restaurant franchise currently in NYC. Have been in the service industry for more than seven years after completing time in service with the US Army since I was 17 years old. I'm originally Puerto Rican (born and raised), so that makes me fluent in both languages.
Worked for a modelling agency in Puerto Rico (Cromo Models) for three years and have been in different fashion shows, advertisements and tv series.
I love travelling and have had the opportunity to do it more often due to partnerships with hotels and destinations.

Jose, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I would love to reach out to the world. My aspiration would be to show the world that you don't have to be better than anyone, you just have to be you.
I began as a model when I started dating a beauty pageant contestant then I found a passion for it and have been doing it ever since
Who is your inspiration in life Jose? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration is my grandfather. I keep just by waking up every day.
We all make mistakes Jose; 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.
No situation that I can recall
Jose , 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?
It's all about being organized and have great skills in time management which I certainly do.
Please tell us, Jose, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Arranged all of my priorities by time and dates. Made sure that my clients had available times to accommodate them all accordingly and could execute without worries.
Jose, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I just showed him how to do it. He clearly saw it was the best way.
Jose, 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?
All of them. They all help with my growth.
Jose, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
During a fashion show a hairdresser messed up my hair, and I just made a man bun before the runway. Matched me with a very tropical style and designer just loved it. (Never wore what I was supposed to)
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes. Talents, Brands, creatives, acting anything involved with the media.
