1. How did you get into modeling?
Well it all came from my taking my fitness and physique more seriously in the last few years, I had taken it up a few levels and as a result I got approached by a very talented fitness photographer Chris Harper who wanted to work with me, we did a few shoots and the pictures got a great reaction and I was contacted by a number of underwear distributors asking if I would work with them. I have been doing so now for a few years most recently I am working with bestgaylife.com which has been a really fun experience. I’m also possibly going to be doing some runway shows at some point for an underwear launch but I can’t give any more details as its in the planning exciting times.
2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?
That’s a good question, I am usually making sure my body is in the best condition possible so that when I model its in peak condition, so training hard, eating well and resting as much as possible. But I do love to travel too and quite often do so with atlantisevents.com on regular cruises where I get to see the world and meet lots of new friends at the same time. I’m also a real family guy and have young nephews and nieces so they keep me busy!
3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?
That’s easy, it was actually recently in January this year I was asked to appear on a dating TV show ‚celebs go dating‘, Its not usually something I would consider but I decided why not it would be a bit of fun, which is was! This year is all about new experiences for me and pushing my boundaries!
4. What do you love on Social Media? – What do you hate on Social Media?
I love the fact that I can meet so many like minded people who are also into fitness, its a great platform for this, I don’t hate to much about Social media as I manage too limit my exposure to areas I am interested in and avoid those I am not.
5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!
I am a easy going guy who loves to rock the sports wear look as much as possible after all i am from Essex! but I also know how to glam up where appropriate. Favorite brands, Nike, D&G, Boss and of course Gucci! My scent changes but at the moment I am addicted too Chanel Platinum Egoist aftershave!

10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?
Other than this magazine obviously!, I would say many of the Instragram accounts I follow for training and diet tips, I love IG for new ideas on how to mix things with my regime up I don’t need to use the rest of the interest!
