Describe to us how you got started with becoming a Model:
I was approached on Clearwater beach and was asked if I have done any modeling or interested in modeling, I said no to both. I was playing football at the time and was doing well with it and wanted to focus on getting a scholarship. Unfortunately I hurt my shoulder to the point where I couldn’t play anymore unless I got surgery. I never got the surgery…but one day I was cleaning my room and ran across the papers the girl gave me at the beach. The same day and I said what the heck it’s worth a shot. And one thing lead to another and it’s been pretty good!
My first agency was click NYC, but the contract just ended and I chose not to resign because i feel they didn’t manage man or market me as well as they should of. I’m also signed with NEXT Miami and two smaller agency’s here in Tamps BENZ and SEVEN.
I’ve been in 3 or 4 issues of Seventeen Magazine, Cosmopolitan Magazine , and Men’s Health Magazine. I’ve done the Belk campaign, Banana Republic campaign, smaller campaigns, and commercials. I’m most known for it my A&F/Hollister campaigns.
What are your goals:
Modeling is actually not at my dream it is acting so i would say my goal with modeling would be to use it as a stepping stone into acting.
What’s the hardest part:
The hardest part for me is finding a good agency you can TRUST as well as the right friends!
Do you see any affect so far with the media, fans, ect:
I did a tad when I was in my prime and living in NYC by getting invites to big events for runways shows, networking events, and media questions airs, . However; I’ve been out of the lime light for a bit trying to get myself back together and get back on track with the acting and go to LA… that’s next on my plans.
What advice do you give to other aspiring models.
Work out, eat right, find a good agency you can trust and feel comfortable around and if it’s really what you want to do then don’t give up and chase that dream! You’ll only regret it if you don’t!
Where can people find you photos; facebook fan page, portfolio, contact email:
Facebook, Google images, the agency’s web sites, and I’m sure there are so other random places you might find then lol who knows…
