Place of Origin:

How discovered:
I went up to London for the day with one of my friends, we were a bit lost in Soho and then I was approached by AMCK. I got scouted once before that too when I was going into a gig in Southampton but I never followed it up because I never thought that modelling was something I could do. After it happened the second time though I decided I might as well go for it; I had nothing to lose.

Favorite things:
My favourite things are drumming, sleeping and macaroni cheese

What are you listening to at the moment?
Mac Demarco, Blaenavon, Bloody Knees, the Magic Gang, Slaves, Catfish and the Bottlemen… I could go on for a long, long time

Favorite movie, tv show:
I’d say my favourite movie is probably Quadrophenia and my favourite tv show would probably be Family Guy. I’ve also been watching ‘The Get Down’ on Netflix which is all about 70’s hip hop in the Bronx, it’s pretty cool.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I don’t even know if these count as designers because I’m not really into that kind of thing, I really like Levi’s and Carhartt.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
Probably what I’m doing at the moment, drumming and going to college

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
The Simpsons? I’m not sure if that’s uncool enough though.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I wouldn’t say I have a specific one to be honest, my whole modelling experience so far has been really fun and different. Travelling up to London all the time and getting to explore new places has been really cool.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Definitely the beach, I don’t think I could ever live away from the sea.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I’d love to do some stuff for Urban Outfitters, Levi’s, Carhartt, Adidas Originals, any of those would be really cool.

Place you would love to visit:
I think it would be really cool to visit Hawaii one day or maybe somewhere like San Francisco so I could become a hippy.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Well I’ve nearly got the money to buy my dream set of drums but I’m not sure what my dream set is yet, so I’m spending all my time looking at drums.
