My upbringing had many ups and downs, but I adapted to fashion, which would then become a passion. My passion became an outlet and a helpmate. I found myself soul searching, when I was often told, “You have something different, or that I stand out in a crowd. Over time, I took what I always heard in a negative light and turned it into motivation for being “different”. I began to study fashion and gained a natural love towards it.
As a child, my parents fashion motto, never dress to impress, dress for success, became my life that would later lead me into this electrifying modeling world. My first modeling steps were placed at John Casablancas Modeling Agency located in Jacksonville Fl. There, I learned the basics in modeling, and the confidence that is shown through any, and every form of modeling.
Continuing, in my modeling career thus far, I have had the pleasure of working with a handful of designers, photographers, and of diverse models. Along with meeting true talent in Jacksonville Fl., I also became a part of an unfamiliar, urban, and talented brand throughout Jacksonville, Faces Modeling Troupe, (FMT). FMT allowed me to branch out in different cities and states as well as provide further modeling opportunities. One of my greatest accomplishments however, aside from FMT, is holding the title as the only male model winner of Florida’s Next Top Model (2016).
If I can be of any encouragement to anyone with a dream; Don’t you ever give up...Don’t stop believing, because it’s only the beginning.
I’m just getting started
