Name|Stirling John Caiulo
How did you get discovered?
My sister modeled for Chadwick Models in Perth and introduced me to the head booker, and shortly after I was scouted and send to Milan!
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was a lost soul, enrolled in a course I didn't really enjoy in University, so modeling has been a blessing to reignite old passions.
People would be surprised to know that I...
love to study mindfulness and keeping my energy focused on the present
What's your latest obsession?
Wordplay for rap music and I am forever writing down lyrics as I go about my day
Your most prize possession?
My bucket hat because it let's me rap like Schoolboy Q
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
My dad was always the person I wanted to be, and I loved learning how hard he used to work to support the family. He worked 7 days a week for two years straight! That kind of dedication really inspires me!
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
To my girlfriend, Caris!
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Positive, Zen and Happy
Describe your personal style:
A weird fusion of all the free clothes I get through modeling

Lake Como is by far the best place I've been to. There's something in the air there that makes you forget any troubles, I cannot wait for another chance to head back there!

Drive, such a stylish movie—Scene: The elevator scene, it is so badass!

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?
Perth, Australia—I will take you to Scarborough Beach because a beautiful clean beach would definitely intrigue a true New Yorker!
If you were given a indie cable show, which song would you choose as your opening theme song? What type of show would it be?
Type of show: Rap talent show. The judges would be fellow models mates, Chris Bunn and Joel Meacock. Hosted by Mason Roberts, a crazy guy with past turmoil issues. Theme song would be: So you think you can rap, a direct ripoff of So you think you can dance opening theme song.
Your wish for the remainder of 2013 and 2014?
For Bliss and Eso to hear my mix tape, think it is dope and make a track with me!
