IN CONVERSATION|MAX GERALD

Name|Max Gerald
Age|19

How did you get discovered?
Like most models, I was occasionally confronted by people asked if I modeled. The inferences made by the questions gave me the confidence to follow through with an opportunity to visit an agency (Fusion) in New York City.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
Before modeling, I was taking classes and spending most of my time exploring different extreme sports with my best mates, like rock climbing.
People would be surprised to know that I...
am an introvert at heart, and an extrovert when I need to be. 
What's your latest obsession?
Cooking and tasting the best of flavors. Lately I've been mastering my own recipes, inspired by old favorites and new exotic experiences I have had. 
Your most prize possession?
I love my camera. My favorite quality is one of the lenses, a macro, which can make almost any shot extremely interesting for me.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
When I was very young, my father was the main person that I learned how to copy and create my own identity. In many ways, he still is.

My mum, yesterday and everyday!

Very simple. I prefer plain clothes without logos or writing, and wearing mostly t-shirts and jeans. My bathrobe and hiking boots are my favorite pieces of attire.

My Grandmother's, when I was young. It's one of the few places in my memory that has always been sappy and cheerful.
Your favorite film and scene from the film:

If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
Kung Fu TV type show. Supremacy by Muse

———————————————————
IN CONVERSATION|ELI LERNER

Name|Eli Lerner
Age|18
Hometown|Boston, Massachusetts

How did you get discovered?
My mom actually was the one who thought I could model. I never really thought of myself in that way or considered modeling. But I love my mom and do my best to always listen to her so with her help, we submitted a few pictures to some agencies and within a few days I signed with Model Club Boston.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
Before modeling, I was still in high school focusing on my grades and trying to get into college. I am also a very active and outdoorsy person, so I played a lot of tennis with friends on my school team and work out a lot at the gym.
People would be surprised to know that I...
Something about me a lot of people don't know about me is that I love to eat homemade food. To me, no restaurant can prepare me a meal as good as what my mom makes. And because my family is Russian, that food is homemade Russian cuisine.
What's your latest obsession?
Getting into shape and being healthy. I work out six times a week and eat only healthy organic food. My health and body are my obsession.
Your most prize possession?
Since sports are my passion, I would be devastated if I lost my autographed baseball card. I used to be huge into collecting baseball trading cards. So the first card I ever got was autographed by rookie Alex Rodriquez—my favorite baseball player, it reminds me a lot of my childhood.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
My parents. They taught me everything I know and helped shape me into who I am today.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
My MOM. She is my best friend and inspiration!
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Loyal, Assiduous, Driven

Very clean cut and modern. I really appreciate nice clothes and I dress to impress whenever I can.

Spain or Italy. I love the food, the culture and especially the sensibility of style.
Your favorite sports:
Sport: Tennis/Tomas Berdych
Basketball: Stephen Curry/Golden State Warriors
If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?
Boston, Massachusettes—I would take you to my neighborhood in Newton, show you my school, where I play sports and let you eat at my house for dinner to taste the traditional Russian cuisine.
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
Helping people to get in shape and stay healthy. That includes personalized exercises, proper diet and how to loose weight. Theme song is Eye Of The Tiger by Survivor

To find a girlfriend in college!

REACH FOR THE STAR|JACKSON LINN

































————————————————————
IN CONVERSATION|JACKSON LINN

Name|Jackson Dalton Linn
Age|21
Hometown|Sarasota, Florida

How did you get discovered?
I was always told I should exercise a shot at modeling. So when I got through my first year of college, I decided to give it a go while attending college part-time via online.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was working at Hollister in Oaks Mall and attending college in Gainesville, Florida
People would be surprised to know that I...
am a huge gaming nerd! I was a warcraft lover when I was younger. Now I play League of Legends in my free time if I am not enhancing my acting abilities.
What's your latest obsession?
Acting! As an individual with a heavily creative imagination, becoming someone else and creating characters is a thrill ride for me.
Your most prize possession?
The memories I've acquired while being on this beautiful planet. Don't get me wrong, material possessions are nice, but nothing can surpass your experiences.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
I wouldn't say I had a hero really. I always wanted to pursue so many different hobbies. But I'd say I look up to actors Tom Hanks and Johnny Depp  for their consistent genius and performances.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
That would be my mother, so cliche I know but there is nothing more important to me than my family and others I hold dear.
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Jubilant, Dedicated and Athletic
Describe your personal style:
Sporty yet comfortable but I learning to adapted to the NY style
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Sweden, Europe is an entirely different culture from the States so to experience the scenery and personality of another country was incredible!
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
Moulin Rogue—Scene: When Nicole Kidman's character and Ewan McGregor's character are in her room for the first time and she doesn't know he is not the duke.
Your favorite sport:
Sport: American Football
Team: Detroit Lions
Player: Barry Sanders
If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?
Sarasota, Florida—Siesta Key Beach, it's the number one beach in the United States, and it's where I spend time playing beach volley ball.
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? 
A show that is similar in style as The Daily Show. John Stewart has a perfect position in society where he can say almost anything his mind wishes. I love the fact he choses to educate as well as entertains viewers.
Your wish for the remainder of 2015?
To have the ability to provide my family with their desires and create endless opportunities for them.
