Tell us about your background and how were you discovered (to be a model). I grew up out in Eastern Long Island and was always really into sports and working out. Lacrosse and football were my main sports but I basically did anything to get my adrenaline pumping. This had its downside with many injuries and surgeries. I had often been told that I should try modelling but never took it to heart because my head was in other places. However, after the sports window closed for me due to my injuries I decided to give modeling a try. I sent pictures to Click/ReQuest's website and took it from there.


What are you up to these days besides modelling? I attend college in Massachusetts and am studying Entrepreneurial Business.


Your hobbies? I love snowboarding, surfing, fishing, working out, and learning about the brain.


What do you enjoy the most about being a model? The experience in general. Every job seems like a mini vacation with fun and awesome people.


What is the downside of modelling? It's no longer suitable for me to wear sweatpants everywhere.


What would you be doing if weren't modelling? Still in school probably thinking about starting a business.


Your best modelling experience thus far? Working out in LA for an Abercrombie & Fitch shoot.


TV junkie or movie addict? Neither


Your idol? My father.


Tell us about your personality? I can be shy at times but for the most part I'm just simple, fun loving, and always looking to party.


What's your style? I like to dress as comfortably as possible, throwing in some trippy patterns every now and then.


What are the top five songs from your current music playlist? Somewhere by Jimi Hendrix, Cowboy by Omar Linx, Ruffneck Badboy by Matt Zo, Fantasy (Felix Jaehn Remix) by Alina Baraz & Galimatias, and Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix


Any guilty pleasures? Chocolate and peanut butter.


You're a Snapchat / Instagram / Twitter person or none of the above? Instagram
