How old were you when you began modeling?
It was my freshman year of college. Around 19 or 20.
I joined a modeling team. And from there I worked and linked with different creatives to build a portfolio.
What do you feel has been your greatest accomplishments thus far?
My greatest accomplishment has been getting a college degree and following my dreams. I put those together because many go to college and feel as though they have to go straight into that cooperate Job and work 9-5 at such an early age. During and after college I made it my mission to always put my passion first and strive for success within those areas regardless of the circumstances.
Who is an artist that you would love to work with?
I would love to work with Nicki Minaj on her music videos. Nicki is at a level where she should be giving us awesome visuals with concepts , themes, moods. I want to just add to her ascetic and help bring out the royalty in her.

I’m a freelanced model. I’m non exclusive with Genesis level and also affiliated with Westhaven management.

Tyra and Naomi

How was your first experience as a model?
My first experience I actually wasn’t that good. I started off with runway and my walk was off, my face was off, and my confidence was slight. I then created modeling into a lifestyle. As I walked to work, class, anywhere with a long hallway, I turned on my model mode and stormed like I was the only one in the world. I would look into the mirror for hours and take multiple selfies in order to understand how my face worked and how my faces looked with different emotions and expressions. It really took me getting to know my body to become better at modeling. I then started to be on party flyers and fashion show flyers, it was surreal at first to see myself as the face of something.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I'll be 30, and that’s a big staple in a persons life. I should definitely be in my home, driving my car and in my career. I should be happier and heavily dealing with my production company and other passions . I would have broken the boundaries of what a African American male model can accomplish that hopefully opens doors for more opportunities for us men to have in the fashion industry.
