1. If you could use one word to describe yourself what is it and why?
A. If I could use one word to describe myself I would say “Smooth” because that’s everyone else’s description of me. I’m a very laid back, nonchalant, easygoing kind of guy.
2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

3. If you could impact the world in one way how would you do that and why?
A. If I could impact the world in one way I would shed light on the fact that Christ is the way to prosperity. My reason for doing so is because I believe that’s everyone’s purpose whom God has equipped with a gift or talent.
4. Why did you choose a career in modeling?

5. Why Pinkerton Model Agency?
A. The reason I signed with Pinkerton Models LA, Well about two days after submitting online the CEO emailed me and asked that I come into the office to meet with her in person, upon my arrival she was sold and began to tell me why she needed me & what Pinkerton could offer me. Pinkerton is known for theatrical, commercial, & women’s fashion but they would also like to be known for Men’s Fashion, & that’s where I come in. I needed an Agency, they needed a guy that could compete in a high fashion lane.. Problem solved
