How discovered:
While working my shift as a janitor at Whole Foods market in Plymouth, PA, I was approached by King Hinton and was persuaded into doing a photo shoot to start my career.

I like all music, from opera to ragtime to jazz to pop music. I am just not really into country but I really enjoy singing groups like Boys II Men

My favorite movie of all time I would say is Avatar, but being raised and brought up watching Disney, I love all Disney movies.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I was not modeling I probably still be working at Whole Foods, just moving up the leadership ladder.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I guess nowadays if you don’t smoke and don’t have tattoos you’re not cool, but I take pride in the fact that I’ve never taken a puff of anything, whether cigarettes, etc, and have no tats

Favorite modeling experience so far?
My favorite modeling experience so far was the promotional video I shot at Orchard Beach, NYC

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The best thing about my hometown Philadelphia is that it is close to all my friends and family. And the public transportation system is alot easier than NYC! lol

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would love to do a major campaign for Ralph Lauren.

Place you would love to visit:
The place I’d love to visit is Greece!

    Hes has a very All-American look. Literal perfection. He will probably end up doing jobs like Abercrombie

    Just as I predicted Dae Na would be a top model. This one to will break top 50.

    looool he’s one of the guys who was cut from America’s next top model cycle 20. Even though I agreed that on the show he seemed too arrogant, I have to admit clearly that he is what male models are, he looks like an ideal tall and strong model, it’s sad he didn’t make it on ANTM but I’m sure he’ll do fine in fashion

  18. ardarrell says:

    August 5th, 2013 at 11:46 pm

    Wow the only model on ANTM Cycle 20 with ANY model potential……however by not choosing him at least he WILL have a career unlike anyone else who wins on this contest. This kid wasn’t arrogant….he was just being real.

  19. Brenton says:

    August 19th, 2013 at 11:30 pm

    Whoa, that is the guy from the first episode of Americas Next Too Model! They should have sent him through!

    Just bumped into this guy during a casting for MBFW. He’s even more handsome in person and a nice young lad. He should do well, I suspect. Best of luck, Ronald!
