Place of Origin:
A veritable mutt! A little bit of Italian, English, Scottish, Finnish, and who knows what else.
Thought I was being mugged or yelled at by a crazy man at 11 at night walking down the street in NYC… turned out to just be my future agent Dave :)
The sun, the forest, bodies, smiles from strangers, possibilities, adventure, the himalayas, touch, singing around a bonfire, good beer, and a really good nights sleep!
Favorite music, band:
No real favorites, basically depends on my mood. I do admit to listening to the Akon and Deadmau5 at high volume and popping and locking in my room alone, and I may even sing along to “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” if my country music-loving sister puts it on.
I adore dancing and moving in general, and if you put a rock wall in front of me I will probably try and climb it. I also snowboard, white water kayak (poorly, but I haven’t drowned yet so that is good), farm (vegetables), and write when I get the chance.
Favorite piece of clothing:
An Etro shirt that my friend Dougie gave to me after he found it in the streets of NYC.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Being really dirty (no, not that way, get your heads out of the gutter!). I am a farmer, so I love to get sweaty and covered in dirt, then go jump in the river to wash it off.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
Just barely had an amazing shoot for 10 Men Magazine in Paris with stylist Hector Castro and photographer Benjamin Lennox. Two hard days of shooting, but stunning photographs and new friends as a result.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Maple syrup, the forest, rednecks, fresh local food, snow, the natural beauty, and of course, my amazing friends and unparalleled family.
Favorite artist (any kind):
Perhaps Steinbeck? He has a way of crafting simple sentences into unforgettable, powerful, and stunningly gorgeous imagery. He makes words dance.
Place you would love to visit:
I want to go back to India because I am convinced that true magic is commonplace there. I would also love to go to Ethiopia or Mali to live for a bit. Or maybe Alaska to back-country snowboard. Or maybe… so many places!
