UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
How long have you been modeling?
For about a year or 2 now!
How did you first start out? What was your first gig?
I started off doing promotional work for car events and it grew from there. But I’ve never really considered that modelling for myself and started doing shoots about a year ago. My first promo gig was at Motorex back in 2016.
What is your ultimate dream car?
A phantom rolls Royce *drools
Favorite food/place to eat?
Pizza! And any place that makes pizza haha
Current song on repeat?
Eat my dust – eptic
If you could have one ‘super power,’ what would it be and why?
Shapeshifter. You could get away with so many things and no one would ever know it’s you.
Most memorable thing a fan has ever done for you?
I received a message thanking me for the affect I have on people and that they were grateful for the part I played in showing that it’s possible to enjoy life even when suffering from a mental illness.
I guess I can kind of sing? Haha
Five things you can’t live without?
Pizza, my dogs, my phone and fake eyelashes haha
How would you describe your personal style? Where do you pull your inspiration from?
My style just goes by my mood and I dress according to that. Uhh nowhere I can think of, I usually just buy things that are pretty cheap when it comes to clothes haha I dont like breaking the bank when it comes to my wardrobe.
What do you look for in a guy?
A good sense of humour and someone who treats his mother with the utmost respect because it says a lot about how he treats women.
Craziest/weirdest thing a guy has ever done to get your attention?
I honestly can’t remember any crazy stories haha
Three words that best describe you.
Pizza. Pizza. Pizza.
I’ll be competing in Your Shot which is a dj competition happening July!
What was your most memorable car show experience?
Winning Hot Import Nights Australia and my first win at WTAC
Final thoughts/Shout outs?
Big thanks to the HIN family, the rarest rose crew and all the people who have worked with me! Thank you to all my supporters out there! Couldn’t have done it without you!
Where can we find you?
