Tell us a little about yourself?
I’m 24 years old, I’ve been working out for about 12 years now and I LOVE Chinese food lol. Initially, growing up I wanted to be a scientist but as puberty hit my aspirations changed and I ended up a personal trainer. I’m certified through ISSA, have been published writing wise in Train Magazine a few times and am now trying my hand as a muscle model.
What was the best moment in your career so far?
The moment Lupo’s general manager, Malcolm, saw potential in working with me before I even really immersed myself in the modeling biz.
If you could model for any company, who would it be and why?
This might sound a little rehearsed but I’m legit content as hell modeling for Lupo. I honestly believe Brazilian sportswear is where it’s at man; the clothing is so different but in a good way and it fits incredibly snug without hindering performance of any kind.
How do you spend your free time?
I’m either reading, writing or researching really. I love to write and I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge so I make it a goal to learn something new everyday.
What is your favorite underwear style and brand?
I really dig briefs and Aeropostale makes some pretty damn comfortable briefs lol.
Looking at the future, where do you see yourself in five years from now?
Enjoying life, being recognized as one of the top muscle models in the world and radiating good vibes wherever I go.
