How long have you been modeling?
I've been trying to get into modeling for about a year now.
What was your first modeling gig?
It was actually a nude shoot, for a man's personal portfolio.
What is your favorite type of modeling?
A fashion editorial shoot would be my favorite, as I love looking at them, however I have not done one yet. I would love to expand my portfolio in this direction.
What’s the craziest photo shoot concept you’ve done?
I recently did a bondage shoot.
Besides Body Aware, What is your dream modeling gig?
To appear in a fashion layout for a top designer.
Why do you model?
I model for the same reason I do anything. I like trying new things and challenging myself and my abilities. Also being in front of the camera motivates me to stay fit.
Do you think there is a stigma against men wearing "skimpy" underwear?
No, I think as time goes by, more and more people are becoming more open with sexual expression.
You're also a cam model. How did you get started?
I cam for a local frat/cam house called Voyeurboys. I was recruited by the owner of the house through my instagram account.
What's the craziest photo shoot modeling story you have?
On one of my very first photo shoots I was asked to get hard. I was working myself up, when the photographer took his dentures out and began fluffing me.
How do you prepare for a photo shoot?
I usually try to hit the gym for a light workout to get pumped up. Generally I don't drink much water before the shoot as it helps me loose some water weight, thins out my skin and gives my muscles more definition.
Do you manscape?
Yes, I think taking care of a hairy body is just like taking care of a grassy yard. You don't want it looking over grown or trimed too short; nor do you want it growing places you don't need or want. I like it just right.
How many times a week do you workout and what’s your favorite routine?
I go to the gym at least 4 times a week. I don't really have a routine, but I make sure I hit every muscle group at least once a week.
What is your favorite style of underwear?
It's a tie - boxer briefs and/or jocks.
What do you like about BodyAware?
I like the variety of styles, the European looks, and the way they fit.
What would be your perfect date?
A perfect date for me would be going on a day hike with lunch afterwards. If they happen to be a ginger that would be a major plus.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, who would you be stranded with and with what three items?
Assuming it's for the rest of my life, I'd take my dog Tina with me; and I'd bring a knife, my iPad and WiFi.
Your most embarrassing moment?
When I see my ex (who I liked a lot and still do) at the gym. I always get really anxious and shaky, unable to lift anything for the rest of my gym session. (If you're reading this, you'll get your hat back soon).
Where can we see you?
