Share with us something special about where you are from...
I was born in the States,was fortunate enough to live in the Ivory Coast which is in West Africa for 3 years and another 3 years in Paris.
Your guilty pleasure:
My guilty pleasure would be a jar of Nutella and peanut butter cookies.
If you were to write your own biography, what would be the title of the book?
DREAMERS PHASE by Roze Traore—Reason being is the fact that as a dreamer you are the only one with that vision and you will go through a lot of obstacles and phases before you reach that destination.
Biggest misconception about male models I would say the biggest misconception about male models is that we are all cocky and full of ourselves, LOL
What do you love/dislike most about the modeling life? LOVE: The fact that I am able to use my body as an art and also having the opportunity to work with some of the world's best designers
DISLIKE: The politics and the fact that I can't eat my peanut butter cookies all the time.
What did you purchase with your very first paycheck as a model, just wondering?
I bought my first pair of Saint Laurent
Who would be your dream model you would want to work along side with?
A full spread with Grace jones!! Absolutely adore her.
JTC was informed that you are a Chef. Can you describe the type cusine you create?
I am infatuated with Italian, Asian and Hispanic cuisine as far as cooking techniques I would say French cuisine is definitely used. I love the fact that I can please my guess by making them a special dish that involves and introduce each region to each other.
What are your specialties?
With the 5 years that I have been cooking, I have learned that I'm really great with fish and my sauces. Although I no longer eat red meat, it's something I can perfect as well. My aim and vision as a Chef is to continue to introduce the fashion and culinary industry's to each other,with that being said doing private events,dinners for those who have made a dent in the entertainment industry is what I desire.
