Where do you currently reside: Atlanta, GA

College that you attend: This summer, I am graduating from East Carolina University, with a degree in Fitness Entrepreneurship with a focus on Nutrition Science.

What¬†inspired¬†you¬†to¬†get¬†into¬†fitness/fashion¬†modeling:¬†My parents were World Class Athletes so getting into some realm in fitness was likely more often than not. I enjoy the art in fashion modeling. I think it’s empowering as well as inspiring to express your uniqueness to the world or to others.

Agencies you are signed too:¬†I’m signed too Smart Model Management and Presence Models.

Have you ever been featured in any editorials or on any websites: AME and an Australian-based website.

Tell¬†me¬†about¬†your¬†rising¬†acting¬†career¬†and¬†films¬†you’ve¬†appeared¬†in:¬† I am very new to the film¬†industry. I was given a small role in¬†an upcoming movie/series “From Inmate to Mayor”. I’m very much looking forward to seeing how far I can go in the film industry.

Favorite¬†things¬†to¬†do¬†in your¬†hometown¬†or¬†place¬†your¬†currently¬†reside: I’m a fatty so I like to go to the Coca Cola factory and try all the numerous flavors from around the world. Other than that I like to hoop and think about creative new physical feats such as jumping over anything including cars. If I’m not doing that then I’m planning for the future aka taking a proactive approach to obtaining and maintaining success.

What are you listening to at the moment: Future, Ty Dolla, and Bryson Tiller.

Favorite movie, tv show: Martin, Breaking Bad and Creed.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product: Giorgio Armani

Favorite modeling experience so far: Shooting in Sarasota, Florida was a pretty cool experience. I liked the atmosphere and the scenery.

What¬†do¬†you¬†do¬†to¬†keep¬†your¬†body¬†in¬†shade:¬† Dieting is most important to stay lean. I try to eat at least decently to keep a good physique. You can’t out train a bad diet but when I do eat crappy I try to make sure I’m in the gym a little longer, going a little harder.

Which brand would you really love to model for: adidas would be pretty dope to model for. They seem to be making noise in the fashion industry especially doing deals with the likes of Kanye West.

Any¬†publications¬†you¬†would¬†really¬†love¬†to¬†be¬†featured¬†in: Vogue, GQ, Men’s Health, V Man and Esquire.

Would¬†you¬†prefer¬†print¬†or¬†runway¬†modeling:¬†I like them both for different reasons. I’d have to say print leaves a longer impression in my opinion.

Place¬†you¬†would¬†love¬†to¬†visit:¬†I think I’d love to visit London, England. I hear it’s a lovely place with a fast pace energetic atmosphere. As soon as I get the chance I will definitely be making that trip.

Currently¬†you‚Äôre¬†obsessed¬†with/about:¬†Expanding my horizons. I’ve always been into fitness and staying fit but I’m looking forward to see how far my mind can take me. So I guess you could say I’m obsessed with progressing mentally.

Favorite fashion magazines:  Cosmopolitan, Ebony, and VMAN.

Favorite websites: www.donbleek.com

Favorite fashion brands: adidas, Stone Island,  and Gucci.

Favorite¬†brand¬†of¬†sneakers:¬†Yezzy’s, Air Jordan’s, Toms, and adidas.

What¬†projects¬†are¬†you¬†currently¬†working¬†on:¬†After Graduation I have this fitness idea that I believe people will take a real liking to. I’m also lining up several shoots and auditions with a few agencies as well as continuing to study as an actor.

What’s next¬†for¬†you:¬†Settling into Atlanta, seeing who I can meet as in building a good team to further my career.¬†My interests are personal training and fitness so creating extensive programs that can help the public is my interest. Helping to better individuals physically, mentally, and spiritually.¬†And of course continuing to encounter new acting and modeling opportunities.

Career goals: I hope to one day inspire masses of individuals and touch a great number through an avenue where I am in front of people whether it be motivational speaking, film, hosting, guru trainer, or something else if it presents itself.
