    his nose is too large for my liking. i believe there are better candidates for model of the week

    his nose is what makes him stand out IMO

    He is very sexy and hot, but the first picture he looks like a new member from “new kids on the block”.

    Seems like he has a lot of personality. It shows in his photos as well. I’d like to see more photos of him!

    Lovely, sort of a prettier version of Dan Felton ( who’s adorable…), and funny, hope they send him over to Milan for the shows, I’d love to shoot him!

  10. Gi says:

    He’s definitely cool and seem to have a great personality but didn’t impress me much as a model.

  11. Leonie says:

    he’s unique , very interesting in my opinion and i like his answers :)

    Sometimes i really, really question scouts & their selections….. aside from a decently ripped body, i’m not seeing much potential.

    A beautifully unique face. Something’s telling me he’ll be a star.

  15. ayno says:

    May 17th, 2011 at 2:39 am

    Oh yeah, he’s a star. You’d be blind not to see it.
    Every picture tells a story, he’s got emotion. Something is there. He’s got ‘it’. Definitely one to watch.

    i am sorry, but i am over this “edgy” look. where is the amazing beauty in this business ? i am craving for classic beauties out there.

  19. lala says:

    May 17th, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    Wow I never thought someone with his type of look would be in the industry. For me, I’m not into his look. But I like how ‘unique’ he is.

  20. Bunny says:

    I know this guy. Funny thing is, he chose to live homeless. He is actually a spoiled rich boy. Actually very dirty and does not believe in showering

    May 18th, 2011 at 10:23 am

    okay! first, with that face, i can see him a little bit in high-fashion, but without all of those piercings. maybe he’s not editorial, but commercial can makes money too. so, good luck in modeling! hope u’re not homeless anymore after u’re modeling. ^^

    Amazing guy, excellent model. Congrats to Dave on another amazing find. Eyes, personality, look…a complete package.

    Eric…proud of you kid. I knew from the moment I laid eyes on you walking up East 7th St that you were major. Congratulations on everything thus far and more to come my dude. Let me also say thank for the comments…but please let’s remember that yes, even though these guys are models, having the features and the personalities that capture our attention….but first and foremost, they are people just like ourselves….so LET’S BE A LITTLE MORE CAUTIOUS ABOUT SOME OF THE COMMENTS MADE ON MODELS.COM…some of which are unwarranted. At the end of the day, criticize as much as you want but they’re doing what most of us wish we could do. :)

    I see a lot of potential…The piercings can definitely get him some specific work dat will be in the market of High Fashion. Anything can be high fashion…as long as u insert it the right way. I see a lot of potential. I look forward to meet you.

    I absolutely love his look; very captivating. Does anyone know what he’s up to now? I hope that he never again goes homeless; it’s awful to think someone so young and lovely could be so caught up on the streets. Hopefully he’s taking better care of himself now.
