We asked Tosh a few question to share some of his personal story with you all, Tosh is really cool dude with a down to earth attitude, not a typical model style..
Also we bring you some photos of his latest work, for your eyes only… so here we go:
#1: How did you become a model, and what was your first break?
I first started modeling when I was about 20. I was discovered by the editor of TEEN MAGAZINE, Jane Fort. She would book me every other week to come to the shoots and portray the boyfriend to all these teenage models. I still have the magazines actually. It was her that suggested I get signed with an agent and give modeling a chance.
#2: How do you keep fit, what is your training routine and menu?
I used to be a chubby kid growing. Being fit was never a big deal to me until I actually started this whole modeling thing. Now days, I’m in the gym everyday and spend about an hour and a half a day working out. I have the tendency to bulk up if I’m not careful about how I lift weights. To avoid getting to big, I focus on light weights and high rep’s. I also try to get in about 45 minutes of cardio while I’m there. I do have to watch what I eat. Low carbs and high protein seems to work best for me.
#3: How do you define your style and what your favorite store to shop?
I would say, my style is a combo of classic and edgy. If I’m going out, typically, one would see me wearing something like a skinny, tailored suit jacket paired with some random vintage pieces just to throw it off a bit. I love the fit a Dolce and Gabbana. The jackets always fit me well and their over all aesthetic is very sexy. I have also, always been a fan of Alexander McQueen. I saw him as a true visionary with amazing ability to cut and design a man’s jacket. He was brilliant.
#4: What are your hobbies?
I love anything that allows me to be physical. Whether it’s working out, hiking, sex, dancing.. I don’t care. I need to keep moving.
#5: What is the one fashion item that you can’t live without?
Right now, I’ve really been into men’s accessories. Bow ties, skinny ties, shoes, etc. The last time I was in Vegas I came across some shinny, gold, Dolce and Gabbana dress shoes. They are completely ridiculous and obnoxious. I have no ides where and when I will ever wear them. They are amazing! I do remember being pretty wasted when I bought them.
#6: What is your favorite place in New York?
In N.Y., if clubbing, Cielo is pretty good. The music is great and I can dance. Being that I’m a third Irish, I really get into all the Irish pub’s N.Y. has to offer. I do enjoy a good drink. Recently, I made a trip to N.Y. to shoot a perfume campaign for Avon. While I was there, A girlfriend of mine took me to a beer garden in Queens. It was my first time to anything like this. It was awesome. The people were laid back and the food and drinks where amazing!
