1. How did you get into modeling?
I started modelling in 2016 when I first walked for Toronto Men’s Fashion Week. Since then I’ve walked in a few other shows and shot with multiple photographers throughout Ontario.
2. What has been your favourite modeling job to date?
My favourite modelling job to date would be any of the runway events I’ve done, in particular my first season at Toronto Men’s Fashion Week. I love these events because of all the people you get too meet.At a shoot you normally get to meet a small team of 2-5 people, whereas, with these events you’re around large group of like-minded individuals.
3. What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I like to learn about a variety of things. I am really interested in learning about the body, as I get ready to go back to school for massage therapy. I love anything fitness related. At my core though, I’m really just a homebody. I enjoy the simple pleasures in life like making a home cooked meal, listening to and finding new music, binge watching Netflix or just driving down to the bluffs to feed the ducks.
4. What music are you currently listening to?
Right now I find myself listening to a few artist like Joey Badass, Stevie Wonder, Chance the Rapper, System of a Down, Anderson .paak, pendulum and Tool just to name a few.
5. What has modeling thought you about yourself?
Modelling has taught me that there are many different avenues you can take when pursuing something that you are interested in. With the technology available through the internet, we can teach ourselves about literally any subject.
6. How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style is the love child of Curt Kobian and John Lennon. I would describe it as “Grungy Hippie”.
7. What would surprise people about you?
Something that surprises a lot of people about me is that I train and compete in Muay Thai (kickboxing with elbow strikes, in short). I really enjoy fighting in the ring and performing for a crowd. My last fight was in Ireland last summer.
8. Fill in the Blank: I cannot live without ______________
I cannot live without music.
9. What are some of your future goals?
My main goal for the future is starting my career as a massage therapist and personal trainer. I want to dedicate my extra time to modelling and mauy thai and see where they can take me because they’ve already taken me to some amazing places.
