1. How did I get into modelling?
As a child I always loved the idea of being a actor when I was growing up, so I have always had the energy of wanting to be in front of a camera from a young age, but it wasn’t until I reached my 20’s whilst getting family photos taken by a photographer called Annette, She said you should be a model, but I never saw my potential but I still decided to half heartedly make a basic portfolio.. I was still working as a landscaper/builder at this time so I never fully committed myself. A couple years go by, and I’m walking in the street and I get approached by a photographer called Gavin Watson who is famous in England for his Skins and punk books being published. Gavin asks me to be a model for him, I took the opportunity with both hands, and that’s when I decided to fully commit myself to modelling and that’s when everything changed. Including my mindset. I started getting approached by modelling agency’s over sea’s, and that when I signed with my first international Mother agency which I’m no longer with.
I’m currently modelling internationally in Indonesia for Wynnmodels. If any International Mother Agency’s are interested in me feel free to get hold of me.
2. What am I doing if I’m not modelling?
I remain motivated and always keep myself active by working out and eating healthy, I have learned to keep busy, and never miss a opportunity.
3. The most Spontaneous/difficult/strange thing I’ve ever done?
I Suppose I could say many things like skydiving, or deep scuba diving. but if I had to choose one, it would be when I was first getting ready to leave the U.K. to model internationally in a different country. My good friend Tom said to me Josh what you are doing leaving your home, your comfort zone, your stable job in landscaping, to go pursue your dream of modelling is the most ballsy thing I’ve ever witnessed, This has always stuck with me. But I never saw it like that I always saw it as I have to get to my destination no matter what. I told myself I will become the most successful Male model and nothing will get in my way.
4. What’s my life motto?
Never be scared of failure and always take every opportunity life throws at you.
5. Describing my personal style/brands and fragrance.
I love to be suited and booted. You just can’t beat the feeling of being in a suit.
I love so many Brands I couldn’t possibly say all of them! But my go to fragrance has to be Sauvage.

The best things to do if you are new to the area is visit berkhamsted castle, or take scenic walks down the canals, or try out the many restaurants berkhamsted has to offer, but most of the locals live for the weekends and love to socialise down the pubs.
