1. How did you get into modeling?

Two close family friends are up and coming models in our area, Makayla & Hunter Johnson.  We were all hanging out after a shoot and our moms started talking and showing each other favorite pictures.  Their mom, Nichole, got really excited after seeing some pictures of me and said „I’m starting you an instagram right now!“… that was a month and three photo shoots ago, and here I am.

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

I’m a working student, but when I’m not at work, school or the gym, I’m cooking something delicious or up in the mountains snowboarding & enjoying nature.

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

Spontaneous? Jumping on this crazy modeling train!  I’m so glad I got out of my own way and took a chance.  It’s opened my eyes to a whole new career path and proven there’s really no limits to what you can do.  Difficult…probably recovering from heartbreak – as a guy you don’t think it’ll ever hit you that hard, but I was levelled.  Strange?  Hmmm, I guess it’s pretty strange to have your hip totally rebuilt with 7 screws at age 15 just so you can keep playing football…but quitting just didn’t seem like an option.

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

I love how you can stay connected to everyone you care about and the opportunity to use it as a platform for change and inspiration when you have something to say.  What I hate is when people use that opportunity to tear each other down.

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

It’s hard to nail it down to just one style – I love classic looks that never go out of style, but I also like taking chances with edgy trends – mixing the two is probably my favorite style. It’s definitely not dictated by brands… more by my mood and comfort…I want to look good and feel good without having to compromise one for the other.  My favorite fragrance right now would have to be Coach New York or anything rugged like that.

6. Describe yourself in 3 words:

Funny, Resilient, Genuine

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

Wherever my family is – i’m right in the middle of 6 kids and a huge network of family and friends that are chosen family.  It gets crazy, but I love it.

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

Jennifer Anniston or Kate Beckinsale…why don’t thay make em like that anymore?

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I LOVE to cook and can make you a steak that’ll make you cry.  I am very athletic and love sports – I’m not a pro at anything, but it comes pretty naturally. I did well in Football, Basketball & Baseball but my new love is snowboarding.  I know my way around a guitar, a piano, and a melody well enough to get a second date – but the Voice isn’t breaking down my door just yet 🙂

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

That it seems to be geared to convince us there’s more hate than there’s ever been.  Makes you wonder if it’s really all that bad, or if we’re just being distracted.  I try to keep my focus on the real world, not the internet, but one of my goals with modeling is to get the opportunity to bring a little light into the darkness when people start scrolling.  Just lift people up when I can.
