Ricky, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
Passion is to achieve and be just like the greats within the industry. The main aspiration is acting but started modelling to gain more exposure opportunities.
Who is your inspiration in life Ricky? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration is my loved ones, and I keep inspired by grinding every day for what goals I set for myself.
We all make mistakes Ricky; 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.
I am new to the modelling industry, so I have not had any discouraging moments yet.
Ricky, 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 make sure I understand needed of me as a model, make sure I practice technique, and I make sure I time everything so I can meet deadlines.
Please tell us, Ricky, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
New York Fashion Week I was in a show, and I had to fly to NYC from LA, prepare for a runway show and make sure I had everything asked of me for the show. I just made a list and stayed in contact with management and the host to make sure everything was executed.
Ricky, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
Liked stated before I am new to the modelling industry trying to get myself out there for the public to know who Ricky the model is. I effectively communicate with my team no need to persuade when the goal is clear.
Ricky, 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?
New York Fashion Week 2017 because it's a huge platform and I had a chance to work and walk at a show during this major event!
Ricky, 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 am an Actor by trade, but with the modelling so far my management team M-WAM, LLC has creatively put together a series of shots not for us to bring to life I am patiently waiting to be creative within the shoot.
