Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
Ralph Lauren is the first line of clothes I stared wearing, I like comfort and RL has some good basic lived in clothes. I recently started wearing Ben Sherman. I have a size 16 foot, so shoes are hard to find. Ben Sherman has some really nice styles in my size. Paul Smith has a nice slim cut. Theory is my go to line for a dressed up look. I’m also a big fan of Nike and Adidas. I’m an Athlete. I have just recently started to appreciate nice clothes. I haven’t ever been a big fragrance guy. That would change of course if I was hired for a fragrance campaign! My mother turned me on to this handmade “Black Soap,” and it has kept my skin zit free and smooth

I want to be a coach or do sports analysis

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
My Mom

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I really liked working with Clayton. We did a guerrilla shoot, and we drove around until we found perfect backdrops. We would jump from the car and shoot some photos

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
There’s so much more selection of everything in the US. I miss good internet connection when traveling

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would really like to do an athletic campaign. I love sports. Ralph Lauren or Calvin Klein.

Place you would love to visit:
I’ve traveled a lot to several countries. I’m a scuba diver, so I try to look for a place that offers fantastic diving. I have plans to see Thailand this year. I really want to go to Italy; it looks beautiful from the photos I’ve seen, and I love Italian food!! I really like seeing how different everyone is from the United States and particularly California

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
My fantasy football team. I played for the first time a couple years ago, and I won the league championship. I’m also a senior in high school, so college is always on my mind.
