Name: Andy Mendes
Lives: Miami, FL / Los Angeles, California
Since I take my health seriously. I Love to get asked about health tips, exercises, and routines. You may always reach out to me on Instagram or Twitter (links provided above).
Besides my personality and my personal choice to live life from the mundane of the “Model” title. I was born in La Havana, Cuba on March 19 1988. Came to the U.S. at the age of 7 with my mother, my sister, and my late uncle.
Martial arts was the only thing on my mind, I was completely convinced it was my passion. The spark of interest came to me after watching “Blood Sport”, I just knew right then Hayashi Ha Shito Ryu Kair and Karate-Do was my passion.
This passion led me to plenty of achievements and opened doors I never expected. I was able to inspire so many other individuals, be a part of the USA team, and becoming world national champion!
How did you start modelling?
All jokes aside. That’s when it really hit me to get some pictures done, besides the fact I always liked the camera and the camera flirted back. It was kind of meant to be. Haha! Sorry I couldn’t help myself! You can never take me too seriously all the time.
What was the best moment in your career so far?
My first photoshoot with “Jeff Thomas Schuller” which just confirmed I wanted to be In front of the camera.
Being book for the pilot of “coconut wives” was such an experience. I saw a whole new side of the entertainment world. This opportunity opened the door for me to be featured in the music video “Rather Be Dreaming” by the talented “Margeaux Jordan”.
If I had to choose the best moment, I believe working with “Zphela” would be it. The amount of work, effort, and love towards making an extraordinary underwear and lounge wear brand is beyond anything I had ever imagined.
Work and personal life, are they hard to combine?
