1. How did you get into modeling?

Well I have always had the naive outsider opinion that modeling was only for those who had been truly blessed with baby soft skin, eyes to rival Medusa and hair that could make Sampson weep. This just isn’t true I’ve recently had this silly outsiders perspective slapped into remission by a fetish model friend of mine. A while ago she pushed me out there into the world of togs and TFP & wow what a response. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’ve come to understand is that modelling is bout conveying your character across in the shoot…. and well I’m certainly not boring.

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

If I’m not modelling I love to be a social creature, I have a large circle of amazing friends and I like to know how they’re doing. Other than that if I’m not socializing I’m either down the gym, training with my acrobatics partner or doing something like long boarding down hills or partying at festivals to prove to myself I will not get caught in the trap of adult hood.


3. Whats your most embarrassing moment?

During the most recent new years I was table dancing in a underground club in the big town of London right next to the DJ. Was living it up all night and pumping the crowd until the table had decided it had enough of me dancing on it and threw me against the wall with my pride being thrown out of sight one way and my coolness never to be seen in the same light again. Mind it made a lot of people and close friends of mine smile and if anything it made this all the more bearable.

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

I love being able to organize with social media its a true blessing!
I Hate people airing their dirty laundry


5. Describe your personal style?!

I don’t particularly have one fixed style however I am a massive fan of anything vintage, even my stilt walking trousers are older than the generation above me and this makes me happy. To tell the truth I’ve always felt like I should have been a part of the style revolution in L.A between the 60’s-70’s. The kids were so amazingly cool and it was a great time for photography and art I just wish i had been there.  Other than that I was a bit of an emo when I was younger and always felt like I’ve somehow never let that go.

6. Favorite part of your body?!

My redeeming feature for me is my eyes. I have blue eyes with a prominent yellow halo around my pupils that signify angelic tendencies apparently but I’m not buying it.

7. Where are your roots?

Whilst I was born and raised in a lonely ole fishing town, The place I was made, where I truly discovered myself was whilst I was 18 and I’d decided I was going to be a surfer and damn good one too! I spent 3 years down in North Devon in a place called Croyde. I served pints by night and surfed by day. As a single young lad I had alot of time and I certainly found myself rooted in the water feeling very appreciative of what peace I’d have achieved at such a young age.


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

I’d love to party with Bill Murray! and if that’s not naughty enough then I’d cause an actual riot with Bill Murray dressed as  ghost busters!

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I do like to dance with fire! even on stilts sometimes. I like to keep special talents hidden as where’s the fun in everyone knowing the cards you keep up your sleeve. I guess my real answer is surprising people even those that have known me well for a number of years.

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

Personally I am really hyped about Noisily music festival. I couldn’t make it last year and all the hype they have online looks sick! Check that festival out its easily the best festival I’ve ever been to!
