How did you get discovered?
I got scouted when I was 15 in a clothing shop at a mall. I had no idea what modeling was about, besides, I was still in school. 5 years later, all my friends told me I should give modeling a try. I emailed some polaroids of myself to models.com. 2 weeks later, I got an email from a stylist in Toronto who believe in my look. She introduced me to a photographer and did some test shots for me. They submitted them to Elmer Olsen and I was signed with them, now my mother agency. A month later, I am on my way to Europe and my journey in modeling started from there.
Items that are always with me when I am traveling :
My facial moisturizer and my teddy bear of 21 years, Teddy!
People would be surprised to know that I...
I have to say Paris, London and NY, however, I would love to visit Venice and Greece!
Favorite dish to eat:
I love pasta and pizza!!! Besides that, KFC and McDonald's!!! I refer them as McDavid's!
What type of music do you like listening to?
I love all kind of musics from classical to hip hop, except heavy metal. It drives me crazy!

From your perspective, define the word beauty
Beauty should not be determine based solely on your appearance. Your inner beauty counts even more. Yes, we should take care of ourself by grooming and dressing well but that just half of the equation! We are ALL beautiful in every single way!!!
If you can be anyone besides yourself, who would it be?
Not to sound vain, I rather be myself. That being said, I am inspired by people like Linda Evangelista's outer beauty and Mother Theresa's inner beauty
When is the last time you said "I Love You" to someone?
I said that to my mom last night. I love you Mom!
What are you most obsessed about?
I love FASHION!
What irritates you?
People that are full of themselves—BS! Cocky liars!
Your favorite curse word...and why?
I don't curse very often because I am a nice guy!
What turns you on? What turns you off?
Turn on: Romantic with charm, Prince Charming!
Turn off: Someone who is arrogant or lack of proper grooming!
Describe your personal style.
I love the minimal looks of Jil Sander. In contrast, I would love to wear a edgy top by anyone of my favorite fashion designers: Rick Owens, Rad Hourani or Gareth Pugh, pair it with black skinny jeans and studded Converse sneakers
What is your new year wish for 2011?
I want to be as successful as I could be in the modeling world! My ultimate dream is to be one of the first group of guys doing the Victoria Secret show, I will call them Victor Secrets! Imagine us walking down the runway with wings!
