1. How did you get into modeling?

The reason I got into modelling was when I had suffered from body confidence issues when I cam out as gay in my 20’s and when I got to my late 20’s my attitude change and so did my confidence , so I tried my hand at modelling at a way to increase not only my confidence in my body but to help other guys too and my confidence and acceptance on the way I look has resonated with other guys in their pursuit of body confidence.

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

Outside the world of modelling , I work as Mental Health Support Worker as well as spending time with family my partner , and being an ambassador for a group that promotes body confidence in guys. Then there’s the usual travelling , films , concerts cooking and follow football .

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

I have done quite a few things in my life , but the most difficult thing for me to overcome was the issues with my body , changing my attitude and outlook and opening up about all this with all that going on battling depression  & Anxiety . But I kept a strong network of people around me and now I am in a very positive place to give back and share my experiences to help others.

4. What’s your life motto?

In the immortal words of Mama Ru ‚ If you cant love yourself , how the hell are you going to love somebody else ‚.

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

My personal style doesn’t conform to the way all these designers say whats in or on trend and wear what I want to wear , but when it comes to other type of brands it is the aftershaves i go branded .. CKOne , Ultraviolet , Onemillion.

6. What genre of music best describes you?

I would say upbeat pop would best describe me , always with a positive outlook , makes you feel good and feels you with motivation and energy to face whatever the day comes up with.

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

I was born and raised in Farnborough in Hampshire in the UK , there’s nothing really of anything exciting bout my home town but its community spirit and with others willing to help others makes it a nice place to live.

8. Name one celebrity you’d like to get naughty with!

My celeb naughty is a tough one as there’s Liam and Chris Hemsworth , I certainly wouldn’t say no to them hunks. So I would just take both as I couldn’t  choose between them.

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I don’t think I have any talents to note of that would make me go on a talent show , but if you went on a different type of talent , it would be my caring , compassionate side and willingness to help people in need and support them with my life skills and with my knowledge and experiences to help put them into a positive outlook.

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

I don’t really spend that much time scrolling through the internet as I like to live on the realm of reality and enjoy life , the closet I get to the internet is of the social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram to connect with relatives and people of interest
