1. How did you get into modeling?

I got into modeling in the fall of 2018. I was prepping for an upcoming bodybuilding show, so I had a few shots done with some local photographers. Up until then, I had only done a few photoshoots in the past, and I had never really considered taking it more seriously. After posting a few of those images on my IG, new photographers reached out, and I’ve been shooting with some talented people ever since!

2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?

I’ve always been passionate about building the perfect physique, something I’ve been steadily working on for the past 12 years. I did my first show in 2015, but it wasn’t until 2018 that I decided to go after IFBB Pro status. Since then I’ve been a full time competitor, something that takes up a significant amount of my time.

I’ve also been studying and pursuing acting for the past 8 years, and I’m a cinematographer, currently shooting my debut feature film, „Bastion“.

As for my free time, I prefer to relax at home with a movie or some gaming.

3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?

Being a bodybuilder is all about consistency – so there’s not a whole lot of room for spontaneity! That said, attempting to become a pro (and an all natural one at that!), has been one of the most difficult things I’ve attempted. Especially while trying to juggle pursuing acting, modeling, and cinematography work at the same time!

4. What do you love on Social Media? – What do you hate on Social Media?

Social Media offers a great venue for showcasing my work, and allows me to discover talented people I wouldn’t have found without it. Nearly every photographer I’ve worked with has connected with me via IG. Unfortunately, it also allows people to spread a ton of misinformation, especially in the fitness world. I try to provide both a positive account, as well as one that provides fitness / health information to those seeking advice. People have reached out to me from all around the world with their questions, and I’ve been answering them to the best of my abilities!

5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!

A pair of perfectly fitted jeans, tall boots, a snug v-neck T and a blazer. It’s the best of everything – comfortable for all day wear, casual and relaxed, but still sleek enough to pop into a more upscale location without appearing under dressed.

Though when it’s hot in the summer, you’ll mostly find me in gymwear 🙂

6. Describe yourself in 3 words:

Driven. Intense. Perfectionist.

7. Where are your roots – The best thing about/to do in your hometown?

I was born in Southeastern CT, and I’ve lived there my whole life. Currently, that’s the quiet town of Gales Ferry. Most of my work takes me to big cities (NYC, Boston), but I love the quite peacefulness of being near the forest.

8. Name one celebrity youd like to get naughty with!

Only one? 😉

9. Do you have any special Talents?

In addition to acting, modeling, bodybuilding and cinematography, I’ve also trained in martial arts for over 15 years. I competed in that l when I was younger, and I later went to stunt school in NYC to translate those fighting skills to the big screen. Something I’m still working on!

10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?

I love science (space in particular) – so following the progress and development of manned missions to Mars is hugely exciting.
