How important is style when it comes to representing who you are? Why?

Style is super important because it gives you a way of expressing who you are, how you feel, and how you see yourself and the world around you.

It’s a great and powerful freedom that allows you to establish your individuality and show the world who you are or how you want to be perceived before even opening your mouth, making a bold statement and giving you a sense of self.

What’s the biggest grooming mistake a guy can make?

Long fingernails, gross! And as for facial hair, scruff is hot–but full on beards and mustaches are a no-no.

What types of styles should never be put together?

I think that if you can mix and match styles, fabrics, prints, etc. with a sense of direction and a vision for the look you’re going for, anything can be pulled off with the right confidence!

How would you describe your style in 3 words?

Elegant, edgy, eclectic

What is your favorite hobby?

I love music, dancing and singing.

If you could work with someone, (celebrity) who would it be?

I’d love to work with Kate Moss, I find her absolutely intriguing.

What is one interesting thing about your hometown or family we wouldn’t know?

I am one of 5 kids and we all have the same blue eyes. My parents are both 1 of 5 kids as well and most of my cousins have the same “Floyd” eyes…bright, wide, and blue!

Is modeling your number one priority? What is your true passion?

At this point in time modeling is my number one priority, but I definitely want to get into TV and film eventually.


What would you say to people who consider modeling vain?

Modeling is definitely not all the glamour and gloss people perceive it to be- it’s hard work, and models are constantly facing harsh criticism from those in the industry and outside looking at their pictures/ads/spreads.

Models endure a lot of rejection and negativity, but they provide designers and innovative artists with a way to create beautiful pieces and get products to consumers.

What approach should a guy use that grabs your attention right off the bat?

Chivalry and humor.

Worst style a man can have?

No style at all…everyone needs to have a bit of a signature style.

Who are the people that inspired you to follow your dreams?

My family- especially my sister and mother. They always say you have to do what you’re passionate about even if it’s the scarier, harder, or riskier path! The greatest risks can yield the greatest returns.


Was there a turning point in your life that led you to modeling?

Not really a turning point, but after being discovered at the mall while shopping with my sister, that kind of gave me the “push” to go ahead and try to pursue modeling.

With the crazy, NYC, fast paced lifestyle, how do you keep yourself sane and grounded?

I surround myself with really great people. Friends help keep you sane and keep things in perspective. It’s also important to set aside personal “me-time” to do things by yourself and for yourself!

Everyone aspires for success, but what drives you to work so hard?

I work so hard because I am extremely competitive with myself and constantly want to prove that I can do it. I always give 110% and believe that success comes to those who give it their all.

Being a model, how do you deal with rejection?

I take everything with a grain of salt–you can’t take a “no” as a personal insult. Modeling is a job, if you’re not the right fit for a particular shoot, there’s nothing “wrong” with you, you’re just not what the client is looking for.

If you take that approach, and have a positive outlook then you’ll be much happier and more successful throughout life and your career!


What kind of training and preparation do you go through every day?

It’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with regard to diet and exercise. I make sure to take vitamins, drink lots of water, and love to do at-home spa days with face masks, scrubs, deep conditioning hair treatments, and all that jazz!

Who’s career inspires you the most?

Heidi Klum- she seems like such a wonderful and grounded person. I think she’s mastered the whole career and family combination beautifully.

She has also given longevity to her career by juggling the roles of supermodel, media personality, curator of Project Runway, and product mogul with collections sold all over the world.

5, 10, 50 years down the line when you’ve achieved everything you aspire for today, where do you see yourself?

Hopefully still working in the industry! And with a loving family of my own.
