Hometown|Austin, Texas

How did you get discovered?
I was working at Abercrombie & Fitch in the summer of 2013, one of my co-workers told me to go try and take some pictures at her agency, Heyman Talent in Austin, Texas. I went to that agency this summer (2014), the pictures were sent to NY and several agencies showed interest. We chose to go with AIM Models.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
Before modeling, I was a full-time student at Texas A&M, Corpus Christi, I raced dirt bikes and was VP of a non-profit dirt bike organization called AMSA (Austin Moto-Sports Association)
People would be surprised to know that I...
won the state championship in my dirt bike racing series in my class, finished 10th in the nation at the national level 
What's your latest obsession?
College football, Texas A&M football, Johnny Manzel, and off-road dirt bike racing
Your most prize possession?
My 2013 KTM250xC (dirt Bike)
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
My dad, Steward Baylor Jr., Johnny Manzel (on the field, not off)
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
My mom, this morning
Three adjectives that best describes you:

Your favorite film and scene from the film:

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?
Austin, Texas—Austin City Limits Music Festival, have been going since 2009, great music, gives you a good taste of Austin!
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? 
I would have a show talking about college football, college sports as a whole, why athletes should be payed and a way I think it could be done effectively without hurting the integrity of the game!
Your wish for the remainder of 2014?
Be a pro dirt-bike racer, unlimited money, or A&M win a national title in football!
