How did you fall in love with modeling?
It was never my plan to become a model/actor. I played football my whole life and when my career was over I didn’t really know which direction in life I wanted to go. The woman I was dating at the time had suggested that I get into modeling and helped me pursue my first audition. I booked the gig and It was a national commercial so they took extremely good care of me Onset as well as created an awesome experience all around. It was at this moment that I fell in love with modeling /acting.
