What's your latest obsession?

Photography! Just got a SLR and now I cannot put it down!


Your most prize possession?

Old chest that belonged to my great uncle; I keep all of my memorabilia in it and only open it when I have time to pour through it all!


Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?

Scientists—Hawking, for example. As well as my favorite author, David Foster Wallace


When is the last time you said "I Love You" to someone?

Last night actually, to my lady friend, Lohla!



Describe your personal style

I suppose I am a bit hipster but I try to find a meeting ground between preppy, punk and business wear!


Your favorite place you have travel to

Baltimore—specifically my sister's house and the Golden West Cafe!


Your favorite films

The Lion King—Scene: Can you Feel The Love Tonight?—I get nostalgic just thinking about it

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?

Mendham, New Jersey—Visit Weird New Jersey tour! Like the abandoned psychiatric hospitals or the gates of hell in Clifton! Awesome haunted fun!


Your greatest moment in modeling so far...for you

My first three test shoots were a blast! It wasn't until I saw pics of myself on websites and blogs that I totally realize, wow! this really happening! I am a model now!


Your favorite song?

Paper Moon by Nat King Cole—especially played during the film, A Street Car Named Desire


What is your wish for 2012?

War doesn't break out and the world gets closer to an equal, healthy, sustainable society; I think this might be the year we realize that we are all sharing one planet, despite our differences!
