How do you balance being a model and a publicist?

Funnily enough, it really isn’t that hectic most of the times as my job allows me to be flexible. The only time it’s an issue is during fashion week because I seldom get enough time to do most of my work.

What’s your ideal date?

I am such a simple guy…a bit of a romantic really. So maybe going hiking together or a rooftop picnic. I’m quite talkative so anywhere quiet where we can have a good conversation.

How do you stay in shape?

I try to go to go to the gym 4 times a week but I travel a lot so maintaining my abs get a bit tricky lol!

What is your favourite travel destination and why?

London! I have fallen in love with that place. I got to live there for 6 months and I had the time of my life. I got to meet people from all over the world and the club scene is absolutely insane. I went back last December and I’m planning on going again in a few months.

What inspires you?

My friends, my family and everything around me inspires. I grow so much from the conversations I have with my friends. Being a model has allowed me to meet like-minded people who travel and have had incredible experiences.

Last thing, if you had to be someone else for a day, who would it be?

Hahahaha, probably Frank Ocean or Adonis Bosso, they have the perfect amount of mystery.
