    I usually don’t agree when people say they don’t see a model in the MOTW or Daily Duo, but I really do not see a model in this man. Very average to me, but good for him for working with meisel and templer.

    Cool guy, but he was very very lucky in my opinion..if I was a scout I’d probably ignore him, but my opinion doesn’t count ;) Best of luck to you Tomo

    Met him once. He was absolutely stunning.
    Has this kind of presence that draws you to him. Maybe its his punk rock, i dont give a fuck attitude?
    I think its hard for asian males to break into this industry, just because of measurements and what not, but for Tomo to be doing big things is very exciting.

    Altogether, a very cool and sweet guy.
