Q:  How did you become a model, and what was your first break?

A: I first got interested in modeling through a chain of events which all accumulated with me signing with an agency. I started working out to get in peak shape for football and lacrosse and I instantly loved working out and manipulation of my body through diet and exercise. This new passion led to me competing in a teenage bodybuilding competition. Gradually my attention turned towards fashion along with staying in shape and bettering myself in all aspects.

My first big break was an appearance on watch what happens live on Bravo.

Q: How do you keep fit, what is your training routine and menu?

A: I love the gym and experience withdrawal like symptoms if I do not get my fix (working out) for too long hah. I usually train 3 hours a day and most of my workouts revolve around weights however I enjoy switching it up and trying new things which led to practicing yoga or running through trails on a nice day.

Q: How do you define your style and what your favorite store to shop?

A: I think my style like my is very fluid and changes depending on how I am feeling or how I think something looks. A flaw of mine is that I can be very indecisive and I think that is reflected in how often my style changes. My favorite store to shop in would be Macy’s or Bloomingdale’s just because I need a big department store to wander around and find what I want. I need options!

Q:  What are your main interests?

A: Beach, Friends, Family, Traveling, Gym, Skiing; quickest way to sum up my hobbies/interest.

Q: What is the one fashion item that you can’t live without?

A: I don’t think there is anything I cannot live without. All items I own are temporary therefore I try not to cling to them. Although I do love my Kenneth Cole reaction silver watch!

Q: What is your favorite place in New York?

A: I like the lower east side. For me it’s the origin of so much culture while at the same time calm and peaceful compared to more commercialized and busier parts of Manhattan.

Q:  Which fashion magazines do you like to read?

A: I honestly don’t keep up on fashion magazines my heart is in the newspaper, I mostly enjoy politics. I think the news is something that everyone should keep up on.

Q:  What’s your fashion mantra?

A: You only live once


Q: Out of all of the photos the photographer took of you, which is your favorite and why?

A: I have many favorite photographers and I think shooting with many different photographers brings a unique edge of their personality into my shots.

Q:  What is fun and rewarding about modeling?

A: The privilege of meeting such prestigious photographers and designers would be the most fun. I think you shape your own world so for me I think the most rewarding thing about modeling would be to inspire kids to make a dream become reality.

Q: What do you dislike about modeling?

A: I don’t like the exploitation that can occur in the modeling world. This is something that can occur in any job or industry so really I just despise anyone who wants to use someone’s dreams and goals and exploit them in a parasitic manner.

Q:  What advice do you have for other aspiring models?

A: To other aspiring models I would say that anything is attainable. I truly believe we are the designers of our own universe and that the only person who can stop us from achieving any or all of our goals is the doubt that we cannot. When people say they can’t do something or they marvel at how some people are so great at something, it annoys me because if you want to work as hard at achieving something it is yours for the taken. One of my favorite quotes comes from author Puale The unisiverse always conspires in our favor.

Q:  What distinguishes a good model from a bad one?

A: I think ones attitude and outlook plays a huge role on whether or not your going to book jobs. Thinking negatively and not chasing every opportunity that will only lead to.

Q:  How has modeling changed other aspects of your life?

A: Modeling has made me realize that through hard work goals can be realized. This makes me conscious of decisions I still make today. I try to visualize what I want before I go after it.

Q:  what’s inspire you in life as a person?

A: Many time others who have done great things . alchemist.

Q:  what’s the dream project you fantasize to do?

A: Not to be too cheesy and a copycat but, After seeing the recent Dolce and Gabana campaign for their new fragence I wouldn’t mind doing the exact same shoot. The medditerrian backdrop is insane.

Q: thru out your modeling carrier so far what is the best memory you have?

A: The best memory is my first photoshoot. I went in there not knowing what to expect. I did a lot of laughing. It was a great experience and it really built my confidence getting in front of a camera.

Q:  where do you see yourself in 10 years?

A: I ten years I see myself being content but also continuing to better my body and soul.
