Tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Alexandr, i was born in USSR (Soviet Union ). Moved to US about 5 years ago. I’m down to earth guy, I love sports, enjoying doing fitness weekends. I love extreme – skydiving, skiing at winter, fast cars and motorcycles. One of my favourite qualities, that I have, is my voice; it’s very powerful and it matches my outgoing personality.

How did you get into modelling?
I’ve always had a passion for photography and enjoyed collecting great photos, but I was never in front of the camera myself- until one day I decided to give it a shot. One thing led to another and I found myself enjoying what I did- soon, modeling became my kryptonite!

What’s the best moment in your modelling career so far?
My best moment in my career so far has been meeting new people, photographers, and growing myself as a brand. The highlight was when I got to do a Cabin shooting upstate at a spectacular location, the view was unreal and the set crew was great- I had an awesome time.
What is your dream job as a model?
My dream job would be to work with a brand whose products I enjoyed, I always seek out new things to try and I am always ready to share something I like with others.

Time for us to discuss underwear! How often do you buy underwear and/or lounge pieces?
I try to buy underwear whenever I can, I think that as a model it is important to keep new pieces like underwear in rotation for upcoming shoots. And the best way to stay motivated and feel sexy is to keep this item of clothing on hand.

When you shop for underwear what do you look for?When I shop for underwear I don’t go for old brand names, I look for new things that catch my eye. Sometime when shopping I spend most of my time doing a hands on comparison, getting a feel of the fabric, the texture against my skin, and the elasticity.

What’s your favourite underwear style and brand?My favourite style would be a mix of both boxers and briefs, I prefer the look of briefs to boxers when it comes to shooting, but as far as brands- I cannot say. Honestly, with the fashion industry being ever changing there is always something new to try and that is the roller coaster of fashion, it keeps going!
