1. How did you get into modeling?

I originally got into modelling after being spotted on instagram. I did a little work independently & then got scouted to apply for my model agency. Before modelling, I also competed in a fitness physique show which helped me build a small following on instagram!

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

If i’m not modelling, i’m personal training clients at my gym. Fitness is a big part of my life that I love sharing with others! If i’m not there, i’m probably Netflix & Chilling… as I love movies.

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

Well i’m slowly acquiring quite the tattoo collection which have all been pretty spontaneous. One of them I got of a turtle after swimming off the coast of the Gili Islands in Indonesia & being approaches by a turtle – I got the ink the same day. The most difficult thing however was probably my physique show… the dieting & training was pretty gruelling but… I won, so I guess it was worth it

4. What’s your life motto?

The best way to keep your mind healthy is by keeping it open.

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

90% of my wardrobe is black. I love dark colours, I love dark styles, I don’t tend to wear large brands aside from underwear (almost always Calvin Klein) – however I always love my fragrances and usually wear something Tom Ford.

6. What genre of music best describes you?

That’s a very difficult question. I’m a very random & different person, I don’t feel as though I personally fit into any one genre as I listen to so many music genres myself! If I really had to narrow myself down to match a genre… 80’s funk.

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

My roots are in South Wales, UK, born & raised. The best thing about my town is that it has a great food culture – partly thanks to my Italian Nonno, Franco Taruschio, who really brought attention to the town for his restaurant back in the 70s, 80s & 90s, attracting a lot of A-list celebrities & big names in the food industry (i’m super proud of him if you couldn’t tell). Obviously as well being Welsh, the town has a good rugby culture. I was always more of a football (soccer) guy growing up, but my dad was the rugby team captain!

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

Eiza Gonzalez, Emily Ratajkowski or Ana de Armas… they are literally the three hottest celebrities. If any of you ladies see this; call me.

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I’m “OK” at performing the strip dance to “pony”

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

I have a very weird obsession with watching “reaction videos” on YouTube. I literally watch people watch stuff I have already seen… and I sometimes end up doing this until 3am. Yes, I need help kicking this habit.
